Noor Al Hawa champion

NOOR Al Hawa emerged as the winner in the $500,000-prize money Qatar Derby, which featured last week’s races at the Qatar Racing and Equestrian Club.

The trio of Thewayyouwish, Ard San Aer and Al Mohalhal led the race before the field spread out coming off the final bend. The race gained speed and jockey Adrie de Vries had Al Wasmiyah Farm-owned Noor Al Hawa move past the early leaders.

At the post, Andreas Wohley-trained Noor Al Hawa beat Gerrard’s Quest for a memorable win while Al Mohalhal held on for a creditable third.
