Treble for AL Shaqab at Qatar International Derby Day
It was a thrilling QATAR International Derby Day for AL SHAQAB RACING with a treble of winners.
Haras de Bouquetot homebred HALOUL (Galileo x Eden's Moon) started the day with a 1 3/4 length-victory on his debut run in Qatar for trainer Alban de Mieulle, and jockey Faleh Bughenaim in the Thoroughbred Maiden Plate over 1850m.
The AL Shaqab Arabian division had a fantastic evening when winning the QATAR Derby GR3-PA for 3 year olds over 1600m when AMIR AL CHAM (TM Fred Texas & Al Yakout) took the honours, and then in the following race it was a win for RIJM (Azadi & Kerjam) in the QATAR Derby GR2-PA for 4 year olds over 2000m. These wins were both in the hands of jockey Julien Auge, and trained successfully by Thomas Fourcy.
