Piala Menteri Besar Terengganu – 4 March 2017

Mohammed Rozali takes a convincing victory.

Piala Menteri Besar Terengganu, Terengganu International Endurance Park(TIEP), Lembah Bidong, Malaysia. Saturday 4 March 2017.

It was announced recently that Terengganu was set to be the home for equestrian sports in Malaysia. This is following the directions of the state’s most influential supporter Sultan of Terengganu, Sultan Mizan Zainal Abidin.

Piala Menteri Besar TerengganuSultan Mizan is a fervent endurance rider and thanks to his commitment he has helped the equestrian sport to become popular and also instigated the development of the sport.

The venue, the Terengganu International Endurance Park (TIEP) at Lembah Bidong, has an on-site academy.

It is also the site of an equestrian academy of international standards with the intention to create interest with Malaysian youth. The next addition will be a specialised veterinary clinic to treat and groom horses.

This was the first race of the Malaysian season with 10 entrants in a CEI1* 80km.

On a national level, there were also 40 and 80km qualifiers.

There were four riders from Singapore in the 80km qualifier and three riders from South Korea, and one of them,  Bheom Seo (Solstrom) did his first CEI 1* 80km ride but was vetted out with irregular gait at the second vet check. He did all his mandatory qualifiers at TIEP, and in this race two other South Koreans completed their first 40km qualifiers. All the horses were provided by RTES (Royal Terengganu Endurance Stable).

Piala Menteri Besar TerengganuOne Indonesian rider completed the 80km qualifier.

The Chief Minister of Terengganu Cup included a 10km event for children below 12 years.

In the CEI1* 80km, Mohammed Rozali (Nawan De Fignols) didn’t hide his ambitions and decided that this was going to be his race with a blistering pace from the beginning. With a lead of 35 minutes he crossed the finish line and registered an average speed of 20.9 km/h.

The closest threat was Asri Aziz (Neep Armor), and although he rode the quickest time in the last loop Mohammed was simply out of reach. Asri was the only other rider who managed an average speed above 20 km/h, but was vetted out at the final check for irregular gait.

Mohammed Yusuf (Castlebar Twilight) was happy with second place after a consistent race while the final podium spot went to Sharifuddin Ghani (Tui’s Mayfair).

The next race in Malaysia is in the same location on 7 and 8 April.
