Velínia Rach and her half-brother Veneraddo Rach, both sons of the great champion Atentaddo VE (2013, 2014 and 2015), win first and second places at Grande Prêmio UAE President Cup Series for Maiden Horses III, at Cidade Jardim Racecourse and organized by the Brazilian Arabian Horse Breeders Association (ABCCA).
The race, held on 1,200 meters on dirt, had the participation of 12 animals, colts and fillies, competing for the first victory of the 2021 season.
After a very disputed start with Veneraddo Rach (Atentaddo VE x Vanna Rach by *Aicyng AHRA), led by Luiz Henriques, battling for the first position until the entry of the final straight, the jockey Fernando Larroque shows all his expertise when finding a pass and lead Velínia Rach (Atentaddo VE x. Vandella Rach by Aleksander Rach) to victory with a 3 ¼ lengths advantage over her half-brother.
In this way, the two sons of Atentaddo VE (Wonderful Boy x Dahaby NA by *Padrons Image) show that they inherited the path to victory from their father.
In third place Revelation Rach (*Eksport x Rapunzel Rach by Voltaire Rach) riding by Lucas Felipe and with three lengths behind Veneraddo Rach.
Trained by Oberdan S. Pereira, Velínia Rach is owned by Haras Rio Iguassu, one of the most important Thoroughbred’s breeders and owners, which made its debut in Arabian horse racing with victory. Veneraddo Rach and Revelation Rach are trained by Cícero F. Silva and owned by Daniela Franco de Oliveira. These victories motivate new owners to put their animals in training and competitions, an advance for Arabian races in Brazil.
