Al Ramzani saddles four winners for Al Jeryan Stud
Ghazali-trained Molheb Al Naif wins Losail Cup while jockey Carlos Henrique finishes with three wins.
Al Jeryan Stud’s horses, trained by Hadi Nasser Rashid Al Ramzani, had a field day at the sixth meeting of the racing season, winning four of the nine races at the Qatar Equestrian and Racing Club.
Jockey Carlos Henrique steered three of the four winners.
The feature race – Losail Cup 1200M – was however won by Molheb Al Naif, ridden by Harry Bentley and trained by Mohammed Ghassim Ghazali, from the stables of Al Naif Racing. Ghazali-trained horses won just two races, the feature event and the penultimate race of the day, the Wathnan Cup.
There really was no looking past Molheb Al Naif in the Losail Cup, a race for Purebred Arabian colts and geldings. Molheb Al Naif had won three of its six races last season and as such came into Thursday’s race with a strong record. And with Bentley at the helm, the horse was a comfortable winner by 3.75 lengths.
Bentley rode home two winners on the day, the other being Alignement, trained by Ghazali.
But it was jockey Henrique, with three winners, who was the cynosure. He guided Venedegar – in the first race of the day, Djelamer in the Purebred Arabian Handicap and Al Lusail in the Al Wukair Cup.
