THE ‛FOURCY/AL SHAQAB’ DUO SHINES IN ROME

Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan Cup (Listed PA), 4th June 2017. The Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan Cup (Listed PA), run at Rome, was merely a formality for the Thomas Fourcy trained runner Metrag (Amer), who won by four lengths ridden by the Qatari jockey Faleh Bugenhaim. Always in a good position behind the leader, Yenka (Munjiz), Metrag began his run 400 meters from the line and no one could get near him.

A Group III PA winner at Casablanca last year, this was a fourth win in nine starts for Metrag, a 5 year old who carries the colours of Al Shaqab Racing.

This was the second time, after the World Purebred Arabian Horse Racing Conference in Rome last year, that the Sheikh Mansoor Festival has taken place at the Italian capital, with three races at the meeting, called Abu Dhabi Day.
