AL RUWAIS - RMMAS WINS HIS FIRST GROUP

ABU DHABI (UAE), 11th FEBRUARY 2018

Gr. III PA- 5 year olds and over - 1,200m - AED 300,000

Trained by Jean de Roüalle and in the colours of Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Rmmas (Mahabb) showed off his speed over 1,200 meters to win the Al Ruwais (Gr. III PA). He finished in front of RB Torch (TH Richie), who was carrying top weight, and Cakouet de Bozouls (Dahess).

"RMMAS HAS A LOT OF OPTIONS OPEN TO HIM"

Rmmas travelled mid-division during the race, beginning his run 600m from the line. The eventual winner took the lead at the 300 meters mark, and firmly closed on the door on his rivals, despite strong finishes from RB Torch and Cakouet de Bozouls. Jean de Roüalle commented after the race: "He’s a horse that we like a lot. He won very well previously at Al Ain. He’s very adaptable, whether in terms of trip or surface. He has a lot of options open to him. » Previously trained by Didier Guillemin in France, Rmmas had finished behind Loraa (Mahabb) in the Wathba Stallions Cup - Prix Burkeguy (L. PA) last year. Exported abroad at the end of the season, he had never run over such a short trip, although he had previously won over 1,400 meters in France.

ONE OF THE GREAT BLOODLINES OF SHEIKH MANSOUR

Rmmas is the full brother to the very smart Mabrooka, winner of the Qatar Coupe de France des Chevaux Arabes (Gr. I PA). Their dam, Shamayl (Kesberoy), also produced Rakha, winner of the Liwa Oasis (Gr. I PA) and the French Arabian Breeders’ Challenge des Pouliches (L. PA) in 2011, as well as Joudh, winner of the Qatar Coupe de France des Chevaux Arabes and the Al Rayyan Cup - Prix Kesberoy (Gr. Is PA).
