Last Call MHF places 3rd in the HH Sheikha Fatima Bint Mubarak Ladies World Championship race. Congratulations to Paddys Day and Dream Pearl for their win. Teri Eaton scored a superb win on the Eaton-trained Dream Pearl to qualify for the Ladies World Championship finals to be run in November in Abu Dhabi. Scott Powell’s Ivory Shores under French lady rider Ingrid Grardm made an impressive comeback after a rough start out of the gates. Favoritt Arabians Last Call MHF finished 3rd under Dutch rider Cindy Klinkenberg in the 10-horse field, with an impressive run against such seasoned champions.
The H. H. Sheikha Fatima Bint Mubarak Ladies World Championship Ladies Cup had a purse of $41,000. This is an exciting race with Lady Jockeys come from around the world to ride the Arabian horses in the race.
The 6-year-old Paddys Day, owned by Quarter Moon Ranch LLC, was spot on under jockey Keiber Coa to not only avenge his defeat by Sand Victor in 2016 but also add the Sheikh Zayed Cup Emerald Jewel to his earlier win in the Sheikh Zayed Cup Amethyst Jewel in Houston in March this year. He needs just one more race to win the $150,000 Jewel purse. Coa kept Paddys Day behind the early leader True Grit SA and then moved to the front at the half way pole. From then on the Burning Sands son opened up a four-length lead in the six-furlong race to win by over two lengths. The Scott Powell-trained winner finished ahead of the Teri Eaton-trained duo of Sand Victor (Hugo Hererra up) and Quick Sand AAunder Pedro Terrero. .
