FOOTPRINTINTHESAND emerged as the winner of Al Jassasiya Cup, the feature event of last week’s races at the Qatar Racing and Equestrian Club.
Ahmed Kobeissi’s charge did well to edge out Marjan of Umm Qarn in a close finish.
Marjan, ridden by Gaetan Faucon, followed Footprintinthesand throughout and was alongside Marvin Suerland and his partner in the final 100M for a thrilling duel.
However, Footprintinthesand did enough to edge out Alban de Mieulle’s ward at the post to win the mile-long run.
Sraab, also trained by Kobeissi and helmed by Saleem Golam, completed the top three.
