HH Shaikh Nasser-Owned Mare Al Raya Shines in Lingfield

Mare Al Raya stormed to victory in the Lingfield race, adding to the long list of victories attained by mares owned by HH Shaikh Nasser bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Representative of His Majesty the King for Charity Works and Youth Affairs and President of the Supreme Council for Youth and Sports.

Mares owned by His Highness continued to dominate headlines at the international level, conquering several elite races held on European soil in recent months.   

Making its fourth attempt in this renowned race, Al Raya defeated a broad list of top horses to earn a well-deserved victory in the race to secure promotion from the amateur class to other categories. Engineering this resounding win was trainer Simon Crisford along with skilled Italian jockey Anrdrea Atzeni.

It’s worth noting that the HH Shaikh Nasser-owned mares have been in winning form recently with mare Daahyeh topping the podium in the prestigious Royal Ascot race.

She bagged the title of the 1200m competition which was for Group 3 (2yr age mares only) following a stunning performance. Steered by jockey David Egan and trained by Roger Varian, Daahyeh defeated 25 participants, becoming the first to cross the finish line.
