Convertino rides Raedah to Brouq Cup victory

Alban de Mieulle trained Raedah (Djebbel-Daniah) put in a terrific stretch run to demolish the hopes of her rivals to clinch the Brouq Cup, a local bred Pure Arabian Conditions race for Fillies and Mares, which featured the races at the Qatar Racing and Equestrian Club yesterday.

Khafouqi shot into the lead and was closely followed by Raghed and the rest. Italian jockey Pier Convertino had Raedah in the fifth position, bidding his time to make the move. As the field entered the business end of the race, Raedah was alighted to the task on hand. The seven year old bay mares' response was immediate as she shot past the front runners and went away to win by three and half length in a smart timing of one minute 18.78 seconds. Al Fakhamah improved towards the finish to take the runner-up berth from Hassiba, while Ras Al Qimmah was fourth.
