Al Rayyan Endurance Ride – 19 November 2016

Prudence rules

Endurance Village, Sealine, Mesieed, Qatar. Saturday 19 November was a day full of drama for the Qatar Endurance Committee with tense racing in the CEI1* 100km, CEIYJ 1* 90km and CEI1* 80 km events.

The weekend started yesterday with a 40km qualifier and a 20km children’s race that saw a combined total of almost forty entries on the starting list.

dsc_1434-minFor the CEI1* 100km Mangu Singh, atop HCE Burshadron, managed the race in the best way by going from twelfth and fourth in the first two loops to begin the final one in second position. Once he had moved up to first place in the final stage of the last loop, he had everything under control to finish with a healthy lead.

The fight for second place was very tense and only a few metres separated Abdulla Al Marri aboard Briscou des Ors and Rashed Al Rowaiei with Nahim de Paut. The latter started the last loop in first position, but his horse was too tired to stave off the attacks of his competitors.

Abdulla Al Marri was rewarded for a clever race with the second podium spot after he moved from sixteenth to eighth, third and finally second place.

 

dsc_0640-minIn the CEIYJ* 90km we saw more or less the same scenario as in the senior race; it came down to careful planning throughout the day and not being too aggressive at the start.

Maryam Al Boinin was, with Acque Vela, the best of the juniors thanks to good consistency throughout, moving from thirteenth to third, second and first position over the four loops. She found some extra speed in the final loop to catch the highly performing Mohammed Al Subai aboard Emblez, who was leading throughout, but who couldn’t withstand the final push from Al Boinin.

The combination of Khalid Al Khalaf riding Qayushka Spice was another avoiding pitfalls to claim the final podium spot on a day where racing was not easy.

 

dsc_1916-minA close finish was seen in the CEI1* 80km where Hamad Al Nabit (riding Djitane de Leyre), starting the final loop in first position, held off a late charge from Eid Abuhadoud and Midadsqnozzie. This pair went the quickest in the final stage to reduce a three minute-plus gap to just two seconds.

Ehab Hussien, atop SM Dhan Esperanza, completed the podium in third place.
