UAE wins across the board in Euston Park

Euston Park, Suffolk, Great Britain. Saturday 17 and 18 June 2017.
The second of the Euston Park Endurance Rides, sponsored by Emirates Airline, took place this weekend in record temperatures. Organisers worked hard all day to keep riders, volunteers, stewards, and staff cool and over 15 tonnes of ice was used to safeguard the welfare of the horses.

85 riders from eight nations competed in CEI 3*160Km, CEI 2*120Km, CEIYJ2* 120Km and CEI1* 80Km (an additional CEI1* was also held on Saturday 17). Despite the testing conditions over 60% of horses completed the rides over the weekend.

The veterinary panel and treating vets were good and we had very few metabolic eliminations. Those we did have weren’t serious and recovered fast. It proved that in tough conditions like today if the work is done in a proper way and people take care like they did here we can see good results. I expected a much higher elimination rate – 60% is a great stat even in normal conditions.”

Treating Veterinarian President, Tom Eaton-Evans said: “The riders were very sensible given the conditions they faced, on what was an extremely hot day. Minimal treatments were required and it’s a credit to everyone for addressing the issues sensibly. We saw less than a handful of horses in the veterinary clinic, none required referrals and all have been declared fit to travel.”

Euston Park Endurance trialled a staggered start in the CEI1* 80km classes, they were well received, although the majority of riders still opted for the mass start.

EGB Board Member, Nicki Thorne (GBR) said: “The staggered start is a huge opportunity for riders who have not previously had experience at FEI level to start in a very safe way (away from the melting pot), gain confidence and enjoy FEI riding whilst removing a lot of the stress and worry that might prevent them trying FEI.”

The UAE had an incredible successful day, winning all the classes and the Best Condition awards, horses that have been trained in hotter conditions will have dealt best with the temperatures. The highest placed Brit was Nikki Malcolm (Oso Edith) in the CEI1*, she came fourth.

On Sunday, we saw the same dominance as on the previous day but in the CEI1* 80km the gaps were smaller as the riders stayed together. Victory went to Ahmed Al Subose (Razorback Mechano) and close behind came Narendra Rathore (Mureib) and Ugam Singh (Magic Glenn Tayla).

In the CEIYJ2* 120km it was Saeed Almuhairi (Rabdan) who was the winner after being in fourth position after the first loop. Saeed Al Shamsi (Zo Go Dayr) was the first leader and would finally finish the race in second place.
The podium finishers in the CEI2* 120km arrived side by side with Mohammed Al Mazrooei (Diament du Lauragais) first whilst Ghanim Al Owaisi (Tom Jones TE) got second and third place was for Saeed Al Harbi (Zulo).

The entire prize fund for the Sunday rides was awarded based on FEI’s Best Condition Awards (Article 822), as judged by members of the veterinary commission.

The top Prize Winners of the Best Condition Award in each class were:
CEI1* 80km – Razorback Mechano ridden by Ahmed Al Subose (UAE).
CEI2* 120km – Diament Du Lauragais ridden by Mohammed Al Mazrooei (UAE).
CEIJYR2* 120km – Zo Go Dayr ridden by Saeed Al Shamsi (UAE).
CEI3* 160km – 21 Nik ridden by Ghaith Saqer (UAE).

Nick Brooks-Ward, Endurance Director at HPower Group Endurance, said: “I am thrilled that our riders and their teams dealt so brilliantly with the conditions today and I can’t thank the volunteers and wider team enough for how hard they worked. We are committed to growing the profile of endurance in a positive way and to see that the live streaming on Facebook today attracted almost 9000 views around the world it’s clear that there’s huge interest out there.”

The next Euston Park Rides will take place on 21 and 22 July.
