Al Shahania Stud s Mkeefa wins President of UAE Cup in Newmarket

London, July 14 (QNA) - HE Sheikh Mohammed bin Khalifa Al Thani owned Mkeefa (Amer-Nisaee) made Qatar proud, while asserting her supremacy in spectacular fashion, beating a credible field, en route to lifting the President of UAE Cup at Newmarket racecourse in England . Jockey Neil Callan was astride the winner in this ten furlong race.
 Mkeefa s superb victory puts Qatar on the world map as far as breeding of top class Purebred Arabian horses is concerned. Dahess, Mugadir, Al Dahma, General, Jaafer and Maleehah have done it in the recent past and now this victory further strengthens Qatar s claim to be best in breeding Pure Arabians.
 Al Shahania Stud s Mkeefa s victory in England bears testimony to the fact that Qatar has the ability to produce some of the best Pure Arabian as their local bred horses continue to dazzle in the global arena.
 The soft ground and inclement weather conditions at the home of British Flat Racing did nothing to hamper the success of the Julian Smart trained Mkeefa, in the most valuable race of the UK racing calendar.
 The winner's stable mate Theeba set the pace from the start with favourite Al Mamun Monlau settled at the rear of the field.  However when it came to the final couple of furlongs it was the Smart trained pair of Mkeefa and Rathowan that were able to quicken in the soft ground and give owner HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Khalifa Al Thani a memorable victory.(QNA)
