Umm Qarn stallion progeny were well represented at the International meeting in UK on 10th August 2014 at Newbury in UK.

In the opening race, the Emirates Airline Premier Handicap Stakes, Darifa, (by Majd al Arab) just missed out on a win by a neck to Toutatix.

The 'Zaabeel' was won by Nizam himself in 2004 and Umm Qarn have won the race 10 times since 1996 and Umm Qarn stallions have sired the winner three times since 2011.

Nizam's Djarnizam Maamora (ex Djarnila Lotoise) was placed third in the Zaabeel.
