Under the impeccable command of jockey Antonio Mesquita, Clapton AJR wins from start to finish the UAE President Cup Series Grand Prix at the Cidade Jardim Racecourse and achieves his eighth victory and matches the talented Atentaddo VE.
In addition to the victory, Clapton AJR set a new record in the 1,500-meter dirt race for males and females by completing the course in 1:44:781. The previous record of 1:45:489 was held by his half-brother VG Al Mared in the April 15 race.
Bred and owned by Almir José Ribeiro, trained by Oberdan S. Pereira and once again ridden by Antonio Mesquita, the 5-year-old gray Clapton AJR (Mared Al Sahra x *Cowboys Gal by Wiking) now joins Atentado VÊ (Wonderful Boy x Dahaby NA by *Padrons Image) with a record of eight wins.
The duo Mesquita and Clapton AJR crossed in first place with an 11 ¾ lengths advantage over RG El Bak (RG Karat x *Endora by Wojslaw), under the mount of Idevaldo Silva, who competed for second place with Normandia Rach (*Uzbek Du Lion x Novella Rach by Voltaire Rach) under the command of Ruberlei Viana.
