G.P. DE S.M. LE ROI MOHAMMED VI - THOMAS FOURCY KEEPS HIS TITLE
CASABLANCA (MOR), 20th November 2016
Gr. III PA, 4yos+, 2,100m, 1,200,000 dirhams
Thomas Fourcy, winner of last year’s Grand Prix de Sa Majesté le Roi Mohammed VI (Gr. III PA) with Al Antara (Akbar), kept his title thanks to Metrag (Amer). He defeated the winner of the European Triple Crown of Sheikh Mansoor’s Festival, Ziyadd (Bibi de Carrère), trained by Antoine de Watrigant but also the Moroccan horse Amenvol (Amenemhat), who confirmed afterwards by winning the Prix Al Karouiyne (Listed PA), still at Casablanca. Thomas Fourcy said: “This son of Amer progresses with age. He wins his first Group PA, it is quite significant.” Metrag should find good races abroad this year.
The origins of Mandore
Son of Massamarie (Tidjani), Metrag comes from one of the best French maternal origins, the one of Mandore (Grabiec). Massamarie, who won three races in Qatar, produced other good horses, like Mared Al Sahra (Amer), winner of six races, including the Emir’s Sword (Gr. I PA), and now stallion, but also Mu’Azzaz (Amer), eight-time winner including the Shadwell Dubai International Stakes (Gr. I PA).
The second dam, Margau (Manganate), is a full sister to champions like Dormane and Djendel. She produced Santhal (Djebbel), who won six races, including the Al Maktoum Challenge Round III (Gr. I PA) at Dubai.
