Another highlight of Dubai 2015 trip was meeting H.H. Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohhamed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
His enthusiasm, passion and knowledge became obvious immediately which would also explain why this man is ranked number one in Endurance racing.
Conderosa Pegasus in his first race contesting the UAE Arabian Plate 1400meters 6/12/2014 He learned a lot and I am sure he will show a better effort in his next start Thank you to the Sponsors for their continued support to Arabian Racing in Australia.
6th December 2014 contesting The Shadwell Arabian Stallion Plate 1800 meters on a wet and windy day competing against the best Arabian race horses in Australia Millenium finished second for the second year in a row.
A huge thank you to Maureen and helpers for organising the event.
A Bigger THANK YOU to the Sponsors.
We started 2 young horses at Kiwarrak on the 25/10/14. They both completed 20km a day Saturday and Sunday .
The temperature was said to have reached 41C. on Sunday and very humid both days making this effort very pleasing.
The horses endured the heat better than the riders.
Ian and his gallant horse tried everything but were unable to pass us.
It speaks volumes for my horse Conderosa Pegasus who had to carry an extra 13kg in weight over the distance.
Conderosa Pegasus who is turning 7yrs old in late October excelled beyond my expectations and is showing no adverse signs 2 days later
for such an effort.
WHAT A HORSE??????????????????????????
I am sure their generosity helped Emily, family, friends put on this ride to such a high standard.
WIRES were again manning check points all day deserve our gratitude and Greg, Haydn and Tony worked all day making sure that things ran smoothly.
The vetting team were without question trying to help competitors complete successfully.
THANK YOU FROM TEAM CONDEROSA
