FAVOURITES had a bad day at the horse racing yesterday at Sakhir, losing all three feature races and two of the four support events.

Android, owned by Al Mallah Syndicate, trained by A Jalel Al Mallah and ridden by Kieron Fox, was the biggest winner of the day as it beat Jessie B Goode by one-and-three-fourth-length to win the Late Abdulhadi Al Afoo Cup for imported horses which carried a cash prize of BD2,000.

Honest Bob’s was third and Punk fourth.

Farange, owned by Victorious, trained by Alan Smith and ridden by Andrew Elliott, was another big winner when it beat favourite Wayne Looney by half-a-length to win the Late S Sharaf Al Alawi Cup for locally bred horses which carried a cash prize of BD2,000.

Retort was third and Barracuda fourth.

Al Saqlawy 1564, owned by Al Wasmiya, trained by Abdulla Kuwaiti and ridden by Ahmed Maki, was the third outsider to hit it big by beating Al Jellaby 1656 by four lengths to win the Al Sakhir Cup for Arabian horses which carried a cash prize of BD1,500.

Al Rabda 1558 was third and Al Tuwaisah 1642 fourth.

The day, however, began on a good note for the favourites as Blues Guitar, owned by H and R Stables, trained by Alan Smith and ridden by Andrew Elliott, lived up to expectations beating Lazzam by eight lengths to win the opening race of the day which was for locally bred horses carrying a cash prize of BD1,500.

Saif was third and Inthaar fourth.

Barraqah was third and Mohaayedah fourth.

Langavat, owned by Al Mohamediya Racing, trained by Alan Smith and ridden by Andrew Elliott, was the only other favourite to live up to expectations beating Jallal by five lengths to win the race for imported horses which carried a cash prize of BD1,500.

Nibras Bounty was third and Alpine Affair fourth.

Midhmaar, owned by Shaikh Khalid bin Ali Al Khalifa, trained by Abdulla Kuwaiti and ridden by Karlos, completed a good day for the outsiders beating Fauvism by one-and-three-fourth-length to win the race for imported horses which carried a cash prize of BD1,500.
