UAE DUBAI RACE DAY AT HAMBURG
 
Once again as in 2009 and the years before, the DRAV was guest at this year’s Hamburg Derby week at the racetrack in Hamburg Horn. Thanks to top sponsors from the United Arab Emirates, such as the Jumeirah Hotel Group, the Emirates Airlines, the Dubai Airport and naturally the Shadwell Stud Farm.

three highly remunerated international races for Arab thoroughbreds took place on the 11th July within the framework of the UAE Dubai race day with its main race for English thoroughbreds, the Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum-Trophy and a group 3 race for mares.

Under bright sunshine and in the presence of many celebrities from Dubai, European and local politics and the federations, among them the ambassador of the UAE, S.E. Mohammed Ahmed Almahmood, the energy commissar of the EU Mr Günther Oettinger, Privy Council Mr. Carsten Lüdemann and the chairman of the German Arabian Breeders, Manfred Hain, the Arab horses proved that they have long risen above their marginal existence in the racing scene.

Emirates Airline Stakes

The first Arab race and third race of the day was the Emirates Airline Stakes. Ten three-year- olds and older horses who had won less than three races, ran over the short distance of 1400m. The favourite three year old black mare Boogie Woogie (Jaman x Barracuda) bred and owned by Brigitte Dörflinger, was the only starter to have won a race this year. The four year old UAE Dynamic (Djel Bon x Bageria) owned by DRAV-managing director Hubert Lorenz was among the favourites, as she was successful several times in 2009, and last but not least a guest from Switzerland, the four year old stallion Nil Ishan Ibn Al Sakbe (Al Sakbe x Nil Incipit). His breeder Urs Aeschbacher travelled personally to Hamburg to lead his stallion in the parade ring.
After the start a mare trio consisting of the joint favourite UAE Dynamic and the two outsiders Malissia (Al Sakbe x Malisha) and Al Etihad (Darike x Khadija) took the lead. However the female dominance did not last long. Before the curve Nil Ishan Ibn Al Sakbe overtook the mares on the inside and took over the lead. Malissia and UAE Dynamic kept up until shortly before the finish, while Al Etihad fell well back on the finishing straight. Shortly before the finish the two half siblings appeared still neck and neck, but Mellisia could not keep up the pace. Nil Ishan Ibn Al Sakbe passed the finish first with half a length lead, UAE Dynamic also passed Malissia in the last metres and came in second. There was a furious fight for the remaining places. Shortly before the finish the favourite Boogie Woogie lost the duel with the Dutch mare Grand Duchess T (Marwan x Gracja) who came in forth.

The second arab race was also international and ran over 1800 m. Twelve four-year-olds and older participants were at the start. This race had a clear favourite in the four-year-old stallion from Denmark SR Dorwan (Marwan x Dorwana Kossack), who was trained by his owner Nina Koustrup herself and with three first places this year unbeaten. The four-year-old stallion Poulain Kossack (Nougatin x Pangalia Kossack) from holland was also among the favourites, as well as the seven-year-old chestnut stallion Nasch (Barour de Cardonne x Inschalla), who ran successfully in Warsaw this season. The five-year-old FF Terska (Parusnik x Tishina) from the stud farm Forellenhof was among the favourites as she recently came in first place in Zweibrücken over this distance.
After the start Poulain Kossack took the lead, followed by FF Terska and the outsider ten-year-old white stallion Hespeshal (Izentespeshal x Tatarka) from Sweden; the favorite SR Dorwan followed. Hespeshal took over the lead in the curve and held it in the straight, but he was closely followed by FF Terska and SR Dorwan, who was temporarily passed by Poulain Kossack. However SR Dorwan had apparently been saving his strength, because in the home stretch the bay attacked and pulled past the competition unstoppably. He kept the lead apparently effortlessly, and all this without use of the whip. Yet another stallion displayed a furious spurt shortly before the line: Sayf, a six-year-old Kesberoy-Son from France, who is trained by Frau Weißmeier and showed that outsiders are also to be reckoned with. “He must make a substantial improvement if he is to keep up with the front runners” stood in the program. He did indeed and relegated the co-favourite Poulain Kossack to third place. The six-year-old bay stallion Banjo du Loup, who is owned by the former DRAV-chairman S.D. Christian Erbprinz zu Fürstenberg, who won last year in Hamburg was fourth across the line closely followed by FF Terska, behind whom the initial leader Hespeshal just managed to run into money.

Shadwell Trophy

The last Arab race over 16000 m was quite unpredictable and therefore even more suspenseful, because only two of the eight three-year-old starters had already raced: Ofira El Samawi (Ainhia St Faust x Octavia El Samawi) from the Weißmeier stable, which was successful in Mai in Krefeld, and the Polish trained Al Rischa (Manganello x Inschalla) with a fourth place. Ofira El Samawi started as clear favourite.
The stallion Alligator Kossack (Marwan x Azedine) from Holland took the lead at the beginning, closely followed by Ofira El Samawi. However the Dutch lead did not last for long; Alligator Kossack fell back even before the home stretch and Ofira took the lead. But in the home stretch two outsiders took part in the action, the white stallions Omni D.A. (Ircalan D.A. x Haliyana El Kendal) and Kadesch D.A. (Onado D.A. x Nowara D.A.), two debutants from the stud farm, the ownership and the training stable of Johan Verstrepen in Belgium. Just before the finishing line Omni D.A. mobilised unexpected reserves and after a furious neck and neck duel with Ofira El Samawi pulled clearly past and relegated the favourite to the second place. His stablemate Kadesch D.A., who also beat the co-favourite Al Rischa in the home stretch came in third. Alligator Kossack came in quite a way behind in fifth place.
It was a great success for the Belgian stable Verstrepen and a wonderful debut for a young stallion, whose ancestry is somewhat unusual for a race winner. While his father Vater Ircalan was the most successful Belgian racehorse (although only „half French“ with Spanish and Marbach blood on his mother’s side) his mother comes from prominent blood lines, which are usually thought of in connection with show winners. Close relative on the mother’s side is, for example, the international show champion Bess-Faizah.
