Luck is with the Emirates Knights
Bad luck needed the Emirates riders during the race, as the first candidate and holder of the World Endurance Championship title for adults, Salem Hamad Malhouf Al Ketbi, left the second stage because his horse did not pass the veterinary examination due to lameness, which also caused the exit of Rashid Saeed Al Ketbi in the third stage, and also the jockey Butti Saif Al Nuaimi in the fourth As for the veteran Saif Ahmed Al Mazrouei, he went out in the second stage for medical reasons (metabolism), while Sheikh Abdullah bin Faisal Al Qasimi pulled his horses to preserve his health.
