A thrilling ‘dead heat’ was the highlight of yesterday’s horse racing at Sakhir. Two upset victories also added to an exciting day out in the desert.

The ‘dead heat’ occurred in the last race of the day which was for the National Guard Cup for locally bred horses. The race carried a cash prize of BD3,000.

Pre-race favourites No Doubt, owned by H and R Stables, trained by Alan Smith and ridden by Brett Doyle, and Harash, owned by Shaikh Mohammed bin Abdulla Al Khalifa, trained by James Naylor and ridden by Abdulla Faisal, battled it out till the very end before the race was declared a ‘dead heat’.

The owners, trainers and jockeys of the two horses shared the trophy.

Rising Sun was third and Lazaal fourth.

Steed, owned by Raed Ahmed Yousif Alboainain, trained by Yousef Alboainain and ridden by Abdulla Faisal, caused one of the two  upsets of the day when it beat Taffe by one-and-three-fourth-length to win the Shaikh Sultan bin Hamad Al Khalifa Cup for imported horses which carried a cash prize of BD3,000.

Autumns Blush was third and Celtic Man fourth.

Chopin, owned by Maher Ebrahim Lutfalla, trained by Abdulla Kuwaiti and ridden by Alberto Sanna, caused the only other upset of the day when it beat Vale Do Sol by three-and-half-a-length to win the Shaikh Khalifa bin Hamad Al Khalifa Cup for imported horses which carried a cash prize of BD2,000.

Crown of Aragon was third and Bahamian Desert fourth.
