29 ISSUE 750 - THURSDAY 20 JANUARY 2022 in the Private Owners competition which was held over 100km. Riding Al Hazim 4 Stables’ Cha Shaham, he averaged a speed of 29.13kph and won with a time of 3:25:55, a good 48s clear of Tonbakji who clocked 3:26:43 partnering L C Amur representing Enjaz 2. Poland’s Kamila Anita Kart completed the podium as she pushed Tonbakji hard until the finish but fell short by four seconds and was timed at 3:26:47 on Mas Endurance Stables’ Ursini. The Ladies ride was keenly contested with the lead changing hands over the first two phases before the UAE’s Layla Abdulaziz Al Redha took over after the third phase and held on to win comfortably partnering Al Wathba Stables’ EO Radhg with a time of 3:22:55. The pair started the day in sixth behind Hour Abdelrahman Al Hammadi, who was eliminated at the check up gate following her completing the second loop after her mount, Al Bawadi Stables’ Divine De Traclin returned with an irregular gait. That opened the door for Al Maghaweer Stables’ Afnan Ibrahim to take over on Baraka Elegido. She failed to handle the pressure at the top and ceded the advantage to Al Redha, who had dropped from sixth to 11th over the first two loops, but now suddenly found herself at the helm. Al Redha just had to ensure her mount came home strong and was passed fit and she did much more than that as she finished a very comfortable 2:18s ahead of her second placed Emirati counterpart Sheikha Maryam bint Omer Al Qasimi, who finished on the back of MRM Stables’ Chetak Du Cormer in 3:25:13. Tonbakji was once again in the podium photo as she took third riding Cashmir Essalem for Al Wathba 1 and finished with a time of 3:26:39.
