Qatari colours shine on Qatar Prix de l’Elvage Day at Toulouse

The Peninsula, 28/05/2022

The 2022 renewal of the QREC-sponsored Gr2 PA Qatar Prix de l’Elvage, run at Toulouse, France, on Thursday was very special with a very strong Qatari presence. 

Four of the day’s eight races were reserved for Purebred Arabians of which one was Qatar-sponsored and three were won by Qatari owners. 

Morad takes the opener
Al Shaqab Racing’s homebred Morad (FR) gave the silver and burgundy colours a flying start to the day. 

He was more experienced compared to his rivals in the Prix Norniz as he had run twice previously and had progressed on his last start as underscored by his second place in the Prix Djelfor. 

Given a confident ride by Valentin Seguy, Morad made the running in the 1600m contest for three-year-old Purebred Arabians. In the straight, the colt asserted fairly comfortably by drawing clear and winning by one and a quarter lengths despite an eye-catching effort from his previously unraced stablemate Kareem (Josco du Cayrou), with the latter underscoring his quality by taking second place despite running green to a secure one-two for the winning trainer, Charles Gourdain.

Mayssour Al Cham (Azadi) was two and a half lengths further back in third. With this victory under his belt, Morad provided his sire, the outstanding Al Mourtajez, with his first winner.

“Morad put in a relatively quick reappearance, but he needed to gain experience,” said Gourdain to Equidia Racing Channel.
