Dou­ble de­light for al-Emadi

Gulf Times Sport - - SPORT - By Sports Re­porter

It was dou­ble de­light for Khalid Mo­hamed al-Emadi af­ter he scooped two wins at the third leg of the Hathab na­tional eques­trian se­ries yes­ter­day. The Qatar rider was in fine form at Al Shaqab as he claimed the Big Tour and Open class ti­tles.

The 24-year-rider strode out on his mount Fiji, an eight-year-old bay geld­ing, in the Big Tour and cleared the 1.30/.145m fences with ease to top times in both the rou­tine and jump-off. Al-Emadi clocked 81.20secs and 41.09secs re­spec­tively to fin­ish with fastest times.

This was af­ter he had pi­loted 15-yearold bay mare Dolce Vita to vic­tory in the Open Class as he topped the One round against the clock (1.15/1.25m) event with a best time of 56.88secs.

Given Emadi’s dom­i­nance, it was a tough act to catch up but Cyrine Cherif on her trusted mount Ger­lin VD Waterkant did im­pres­sively well with fault­less runs and time of 79.37secs and 42.43secs in the jump-off to claim the run­ners-up place in the Big Tour.

Mo­hamed Said Haidan on Casanova fin­ished third clock­ing 42.56secs in the jump-off.

In the Open class, Ghanim Nasser alQadi rid­ing Jalieny Dia­mant was sec­ond in 58.05secs, while Ab­dul­lah Ali al-Ajeil on Wadi Rum DH third with 59.99secs.

Among the Fu­ture Rid­ers, in the Op­ti­mum Time (85/100cm) class, Saoud Ab­dulla al-Kubaisi (on Se­lest); was the win­ner in 53.75secs, while Sheikh Khalid bin Ali al-Thani (Lough­na­tousa Rafa) came sec­ond in 49.99secs. Sul­tan Nasser al-Bader rid­ing Funny Thing fin­ished third.

In the One round against the clock (70/85cm) event, Ab­du­laziz Khalid alBukhari on Dusty Moon (Shakira) emerged on top, fol­lowed by Ab­dul­hadi Salah Alyafei (Friedrichshof Dark Dream) and Ab­dulla Fahad al-Ru­maihi (Ike­bana Des Hayettes).
