Agencies Pompadour, France
The three-year-old Purebred Arabian Sayaad, a homebred for His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Khalifa al-Thani, won the Prix De Bournazel on his debut in Pompadour, France, on Sunday.
The black colt broke out well of the starting stalls and sat in fourth position, with the runners very strung out on the sand track, with the pacesetter Heros Des Vialettes running very free.
Coming up the middle of the straight, Thomas Fourcy-trained Sayaad was very green and received two smacks of the whip, but ultimately he was the best horse in the six-furlong race for three-year-old maidens. Despite his inexperience, he went two lengths in front of his nearest rival under Laurie Foulard.
Zulfaa, trained by D. Morisson, was the runner-up under Maxime Foulon, while trainer E. Dell’ova’s ward Rahi was a further four-and-a-half lengths behind in third under Gary Sanchez.
Sayaad is out of Al Shahania Aseala, also bred by His Highness Sheikh Mohamed. The colt is her first winner.
