TM Thunder Struck wins the Qatar Gold Sword (Gr.2 P/A) 

A successful race day was today at Rayyan Park in Qatar.

Our TM Thunder Struck won the Qatar Gold Sword, a Group 2 race for Purebred Arabians over 2,000 metres. He was brilliant ridden by jockey Adrie de Vries. The Dutch rider won with a short head over HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Khalifa al Thani-owned Gazwan, fresh from Emir's Sword race for Gr.1 P/A in February. TM Thunder Struck's stablemate Majeed earned the third place under Gaetan Faucan.

The second winner of the day was Muhjah in the Qatar Silver Trophy, a Local Purebred Arabians Conditions race run over a mile. Also ridden by jockey Adrie de Vries, Muhjah chased stablemate Raedah all the way into the final furlong and got the better of the latter in the shadow of the winning post.
