Thai Polo and Equestrian Club – 18 March 2017.

Wipawan Pawitayalarp and The Horses Club command the race

Thai Polo and Equestrian Club, Pattaya, Thailand. 18 March 2017.

The race was a CEI1* 90km (89km) over three loops of 33.33, 33.33 and 22.07 km.

The start was at 18:00 which meant that it was a night race for the 11 competitors. Although the race started late in the day, it was still hot and humid.

The event was a qualifier for the 2017 Southeast Asian Games, officially known as the 29th Southeast Asian Games but better known by the public as Kuala Lumpur 2017.
This biennial multi-sport event involves participants from the current 11 countries of Southeast Asia with 405 events in 38 sports, held between 19 to 31 August 2017.
The Thai Federation will base their shortlist on the results in this race.

There was one combination which was head and shoulders above the rest: Wipawan Pawitayalarp with Mulawa Angelus. After the first loop her advantage on the second rider was already close to one hour, and that lead only extended as the night went on.
The strategy for Wipawan was clearly different than from her competitors, and she stayed out of trouble to finish the race with an average speed of 15.94 km/h.

Coming in alongside her after the first loop was The Horse Club stable colleague Jiranchaya Seawong (The Horses Born Georgette), who exited the race because of irregular gait.

The next duo to come in were Ravisara Sawatkitthamrong (Rungroj), who was vetted out with metabolic issues, and then Phatcha Sawatkitthamrong (Neptune) who kept the second position after the second loop as well.
After 66km, it was all within one minute from third until sixth place before the start of the final loop.
However, in the third and final loop the speed dropped for Phatcha and the pair fell outside the top three into fourth place at the final classification.

The second podium place went to Kanapos Taytaisong (Burralga Janita) who came in after the second loop together with Oraphin Phetlek (Vigo). Kanapos’s horse recovered better, which gave a minute and half advantage on Oraphin to commence the last loop.
Oraphin’s speed was slightly better for the final kilometres, but was not enough to form a real threat for Kanapos.

Both riders were at the bottom of the classifications after the first loop, but finished in the same order that they started the final loop.
