STEVIE’S Wonder emerged as winner of the Musheireb Cup at the Qatar Racing and Equestrian Club last week.
Harry Bentley guided the Mohammed Jassim Al Ghazali-trained five-year-old to victory in the 2,000M feature event.
Bentley had Stevie’s Wonder run on the outside even as Under the Radar led for most of the race, with J P Guillambert at the helm.
Coming on to the home stretch, Stevie’s Wonder had little trouble taking the lead. The rest of the field was in hot pursuit, especially Ahmed Kobeissi’s Hall of Mirrors, who kept closing the gap under Adnan Hawa, before running out of track to settle for second.
Alberto Sanna rode HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Khalifa Al Thani-owned Hillal to third place.
