Editor's Notes By Stephanie J. Corum

Unless you are living under a rock you know that American Pharoah became the first horse to win the Triple Crown since Affirmed did so in 1978. I thought I was going to be sick prior to the race because I was so nervous. Then when it became obvious that American Pharoah was going to win (unless the jockey fell off or the horse fell down) tears came to my eyes. What an incredible, majestic creature. So big, so handsome, so composed and just a baby! He was running with such a fluid motion and his ears were pricked. He was having fun! An amazing horse that has been etched in our minds forever, and rightfully so. American Pharoah epitomizes what I love about horse racing. Where else can you see such beauty and raw power effortless skip across the ground for the joy of running. There's nothing that stirs the soul more than an incredible horse, particularly a racehorse.

grams similar to the OTTB programs for retraining and rehoming thoroughbred horses. There is a virtually untapped market in the Arabian Sport Horse World that would benefit greatly from our racing-bred stock. We just need to come up with avenues to make it work. I'm open to suggestions. You'll see in Mike Economopoulos's column this month that these scenarios perfectly fit the roller coaster ride he talks about. It's a difficult ride, and like him, I've thought about getting off - heck sometimes jumping off right before the steep downhill. But then along comes a horse like American Pharoah, and I know that horses are part of my soul. And if I'm going to love and support a sport such as horse racing, it's up to me to do my part to make it better for the horses. What are your ideas? How can we help them? How can Finish Line help them? It may be a cliche, but together we can make a difference. The horses will thank you.

But I have a love/hate relationship with horse racing. On the same day as that historic victory, Helwan broke down in the Jaipur Invitational and was euthanized. Then on June 14 Danzig Moon, fifth in this year's Kentucky Derby, was euthanized following a breakdown in the Queen's Plate Trial. And those are the recent famous deaths. We don't hear about the "notso-famous" horses. But it matters not. They are all beautiful creatures that gave their lives for us. They don't deserve an end such as that. In Arabian racing, we are fortunate that these tragic happenings are not as common. Of course, one big reason is that we don't have many horses racing. However, other reasons could certainly include that our horses are at least a year older before they start racing; they are smaller; and they don't run as fast. In these days of increased scrutiny of the racing industry, these are facts that we should be putting out to the public. The other concept I wrestle with is our shortage of horses. Yes, the Arabian racing industry needs a lot more horses to put on successful meets in this country. And yet every day I see horses (many of which are Arabians) dumped at auction, landing in kill pens or being advertised on Craig's List as "free to a good home". How can we advocate breeding more horses when so many are ending up in bad situations? Some people are starting to talk about setting up pro-

Letter to the Editor Dear Racing Fans: On behalf of the Racing Medication and Testing Consortium and our board members, I sincerely thank each of you who supported the RMTC with a contribution in 2014. Your support helped sustain the RMTC's important efforts to ensure the integrity of racing as well as the health and safety of racehorses and participants. In the last year, the RMTC further demonstrated its commitment to both education and advocacy initiatives — particularly through our efforts to establish the National Uniform Medication Program, which encompasses a Controlled Therapeutic Substances list, third party veterinarian administration of furosemide, a multiple medication violator ("MMV") penalty system, and our laboratory accreditation / external quality assurance program (the "Reforms"). To date, the Reforms that our board recommended have been approved in their entirety in at least 10 states and are under consideration in many others. By this summer, the Controlled Therapeutic Substances List should be in place in at least 16 states, third party furosemide administration should also be in place in at least 16 states, and the MMV penalty system is expected to be in place in at least nine states. These Reforms are in the best interest of the health and welfare of the horse and the safety of all participants. They enhance the integrity of the sport, ensure a level playing field, assist horsemen who race in multiple jurisdictions, and make possible uniform regulation of U.S. racing. Our Laboratory Accreditation program has made great strides, with five laboratories now fully accredited, and several others in the final stages of the accreditation process including one that received Interim Accreditation in March. These accredited and soon-to-be accredited laboratories are responsible for testing samples from 26 of 34 racing states. The RMTC laboratory accreditation and external quality assurance programs provide proficient, uniform testing across jurisdictions. To date, the cost of the program has been borne by the RMTC. This has encouraged laboratory participation. To continue doing so in the future, we need your financial support.

Delaware and New Mexico commissions, Tampa Bay Downs and Lone Star Park, to collaborating with laboratories across the country on tackling cobalt testing, this program is proving to be vitally important to the welfare of our horses and the integrity of our sport. The RMTC is also currently finalizing administrative studies on several medications with the assistance of the Kentucky Equine Drug Research Council. In addition, we are in the process of developing a new test for various substances using hair sampling. One further area that needs additional focus and attention by the RMTC staff in 2015 is education. Not just communicating our policy recommendations, but also explaining them to horse racing's participants is more important than ever. By improving our efforts to educate horsemen and trainers, we will enable a quicker and smoother transition to national uniformity with a minimum of local confusion and opposition. In order for the RMTC to continue progress in all its many endeavors, it is crucial that the organization receive support from individuals and groups/associations across the racing breeds. We thank you in advance for your consideration, and hope that you will support these efforts with a donation to the RMTC in 2015. Sincerely, Alex Waldrop RMTC Chairman NTRA President & CEO RMTC rmtcnet.com (859) 224-2844 contactus@rmtcnet.com 821 Corporate Drive Lexington, KY 40503

In addition to these programs, the RMTC will need your financial support in 2015 to ensure the advancement of the RMTC Tactical Research Program. The rapid test development and deployment provided by this program is critical to the industry's ongoing efforts to eradicate persistent cheaters. From identifying unknown substances for the 5 • Arabian Finish Line • July 2015

Delaware Valiant Boy SBFAR, who has raced extensively at Delaware Park, and the thoroughbred, Main Sequence, were both recently honored with the Touch Of Class Award. At nearby Fair Hill Training Center, where many Delaware Park runners are stabled, the Maryland Horse Industry Board presented the awards during the Fair Hill races on May 23, 2015. The two champion U.S. racehorses training at Fair Hill Training Center – Darley Award Winner Valiant Boy SBFAR, represented by racing manager Sharon Clark and trainer Elizabeth Merryman, and Eclipse Award winner Main Sequence, represented by trainer Graham Motion, were Touch of Class recipients. This award honors Maryland horses, people and organizations who achieve national and international acclaim. It is named in honor of Touch of Class, a Maryland-bred thoroughbred who went on to be a dual gold medal winning Olympic show jumping horse. The Arabian breed is proud to be recognized amongst such esteemed company.

When I heard that the HH Sheikha Fatima Bint Mubarak Apprentice World Championship series was hosting an Arabian race at the High Hope Steeplechase meet in Lexington, Kentucky, these were my first five thoughts in chronological order: 1) “What?” 2) “They’re really having it at High Hope?” 3) “The one at the Kentucky Horse Park?” 4) “How is THAT gonna work?” 5) “What?” For those of you unfamiliar with the High Hope Steeplechase, it’s an annual event held at the Kentucky Horse Park, which is essentially an equine theme park and competition space for equestrian types. If you’ve never visited the place, I highly recommend a trip. High Hope is about as low on the steeplechase class ladder as it gets, often hosting fields modest in size and quality. It was cancelled a few years ago due to lack of entries, but its place on the hierarchy is of little concern to the residents of Central Kentucky, who show up in solid numbers to tailgate around the perimeter of the course and give the place a county fair vibe. If there’s one thing Lexingtonians love, it’s finding an excuse to dress up and tailgate. The turf course, which resembles a rounded pentagon from the sky, is built on the side of a hill, and the first

turn goes up a steep incline to get to the backstretch. The straightaway evens out for a while until a sharp left turn into a downhill run. The field disappears into a deep valley at the opening of the final turn, then climbs up a trying incline to the finish. It’s only about a mile in circumference, but, having walked it myself, it’s a mile well earned. While steeplechase racing is something of a novelty to Central Kentucky, flat racing is something of a novelty to High Hope. There is no pari-mutuel wagering, the horses are saddled on the walk in front of the finish line, there is no starting gate, and there isn’t much for an inner rail, save for some wooden fencing and shrubbery. The course wasn’t made to host much more than one card a year with a handful of races, and it spends the other 364 days of the year as part of the Horse Park’s cross country course. Because of these factors, particularly the lack of pari-mutuel options, the Arabian race was held as an exhibition, if a rather lucrative one, with a purse of $25,000. As my reactions to the race’s announcement suggested, I was very curious to see how they were going to pull it all off. When I walked back to my car at the end of the day, I not only realized that the event went well, but its location made perfect sense. The race was part of an international challenge series for apprentice jockey 9 • Arabian Finish Line • July 2015

school graduates from around the world. Many of them hailed from countries where an undulating, European-style turf course is the norm, as opposed to the counterclockwise dirt ovals of North America. There is an innate home-field advantage for the red, white, and blue corner simply because U.S. rider Lauralea Glaser (and Great Britain's representative Jack Gilligan, who rides in Kentucky) didn’t have to travel halfway across the world for the race, but it is lessened greatly when ground looks like something the international riders might have seen before. The race attracted a field of 10 horses, and the top three finishers had jockeys that came from turf-heavy countries where ups and downs on the course are a common occurrence – Australia’s Ben Thompson on winner Es Mi Cielo, Julie Burke of Ireland on runner-up Zells Bells, and Great Britain’s Jack Gilligan on third-place CR Ardiente. While there were some pretty critical hiccups along the way, most notably a rash of slipping saddles that stalled the race for several minutes before the start and resulted in one rider taking a scary-looking fall in the stretch, I was largely impressed with the show put on by the horses and the race’s organizers. It was exciting to spend time with the group of young jockeys, many of which had never raced in the U.S., and watch them interact with Chris


McCarron and Remi Bellocq of the North American Racing Academy. The presence of Abu Dhabi television gave it a “big race” feel, even if it was the nightcap on a fairly quiet five-race card. After a hard rain the previous day, the weather and the turf course were near-perfect on race day, and the race turned out to be an exciting one to watch, even if they disappeared behind trees and hills at several points on the course. Lara Sawaya, Executive Director of the HH Sheikh Mansoor Bin Zayed Al Nahyan Global Arabian Flat Racing Festival, which sponsors the series along with several others, said she was pleased with the end product. “High Hope did very well,” Sawaya said. “The racetrack is great. They’ve

done everything they can to support it, and they’ve supported it greatly. For the first time, they’re running Arabians and it went super-well. The owners are happy, and that is what’s important.” Sawaya said the vision of Sheikh Mansoor was to put a leg of the apprentice series in Kentucky, and that his vision had been well-executed at High Hope. Both horsemen and series administration said the race has a long-term future in Kentucky.

It makes all the sense in the world to take the race elsewhere - greater exposure, better organization, wagering opportunities, and official results to share among them – but I’m a fan of things that vary from the standard racetrack setup. For an international series, you can afford to venture away from the traditional dirt oval, and seeing how the horses and riders reacted to it was part of what made it so exciting. Perhaps a trip to Kentucky Downs would provide the best of both worlds?

Whether that future includes High Hope or one of the state’s betterknown venues remains to be seen, but as someone with zero skin in the game, it wouldn’t hurt my feelings to see it at High Hope again.

Congratulations and best of luck to jockey Ben Thompson as he carries the Australian colors to the series’ finals in Abu Dhabi on Nov. 8. If he could tame the hills of High Hope, I wouldn’t bet against him anywhere.

I originally wrote this column in November, 1993, but it speaks true of racing today. It was a bright, sunny, crisp fall morning in the Ozarks. I was lying on my back in the middle of a big green meadow, staring up at the crystal blue sky. A flock of geese flew overhead. This might have been a perfect day if it were not for the fact that I had just been thrown off the young filly I was conditioning. I guess it could have been worse. There were no broken bones, just a sore shoulder and a bruised ego. The filly had gone straight to the barn. When I got there, she had found a spot in line on the walker and was calmly cooling herself down with the other horses. Yes, it could have been a lot worse. Life is full of ups and downs, hills and valleys. For those of us involved in horse racing it's more like a roller coaster. The hills are mountains and the valleys deep dark canyons. We often cover the distance between the two in record setting fractions. One minute everything is going perfectly, the next minute you lean to the left and your horse buggers to the right. The down part of "up and down" can hurt enough to make you forget about the ups. Let me tell you about a very special filly. From the day she was born she showed the class and talent that it takes to make a champion. We raised her, trained her here on the farm and sent her on to Bandera Downs where

she was working an easy 3/8 in 40 and change. Watch out world, here we come. The plan was to have her ready for the Daughters of the Desert where she would be a contender. Five days before her first maiden race, she coliced. She coliced bad. Everyone in racing has a story like that. Everyone that has raced a while can recite dozens of stories about heartbreak and disappointment. There's nothing better than standing with your horse in the winner's circle. There's nothing worse than having him come back lame after the race. Disappointment is part of the game. If you can't take it, better find another way to spend your time and money. It's a horse race. We take our hopes and dreams to the betting windows, lay down our money, and grimace at the odds. It's a long shot no matter how you look at it. For every winner there are many more that never make it. For every good looking, talented colt or filly there are a uncountable obstacles that can keep them from greatness. It could be a lot worse. I've got a nineyear-old gelding running that by all accounts should have been retired a long time ago. He's had surgeries, illnesses, and a slew of other problems; yet he keeps going. He makes it to the winner's circle and helps pay the bills. He runs hard and carries himself tall and proud like a champion. He helps me forget about the $8,000 I spent in vet bills trying to keep my filly alive. 11 • Arabian Finish Line • July 2015

Everyone wants a champion. Most of us are willing to go through a whole lot of hard times just for the chance to experience that thrill of victory. I've never met anyone who has been in this business very long who hasn't thought more than once about giving it all up, taking the loss, and calling it quits. I know I've had those thoughts. As bad as it gets, though, it sometimes takes nothing more than watching a group of weanlings racing around the pasture to make you forget the heartbreaks and look toward the future. It's a horse race and we love it. My filly ended up at Texas A & M Emergency Equine Clinic where they took out five feet of small intestine. After the operation the vet told me they did everything they could do. She was still alive, but things didn't look good. Six months later she was working an easy 3/8 in 41 and change. Look out world, here we come again. I got back on the filly that threw me and went back to the big green meadow. It was a bright, sunny, crisp fall morning in the Ozarks. The sky was crystal blue and a flock of geese flew overhead. This time when she buggered to the right I was ready for her. It could have been a lot worse. Editor’s Note: The following is the original epilogue Michael wrote to accompany this column: “The filly I wrote about never did make it back. I look out my window and there are no weanlings racing around the pasture to help me look towards the future. The grand old man, KA Czubuthan is


out there; along with a few of my old race mares, who despite their age, retain their majesty. They bring back fond memories of times gone by. I began racing in 1980 and ran my last race in 2009. Twenty nine years is a pretty good run. There are many good (no make that great) things happening in Arabian racing. Unfortunately, I am on the outside looking in. I don't have any keen insights about the industry or backside gossip to write about. So after a brief attempt to make a comeback and revive my writing career, I am sorry to say that this will be my last regular column. These old stories are okay, but Arabian racing is about the future; and a very promising future it is. Thirty two years ago, I got back up on that filly. If I got thrown today, I'd not likely get up at all. I think I will quit while I'm ahead and participate in racing vicariously through Facebook and this wonderful magazine. I have tremendous admiration for all my old friends who are still in the game. I wish you luck on the roller coaster.” After reading this epilogue I had a long phone conversation with Mike and convinced him to continue his column. Sure he’s been away from the game, but I told him I’d help him get caught up with the scene. Mike is a talented writer with a fabulous sense of humor that he brings to the magazine. I thank him for getting on that horse one more time.

Strategic Targeting: Today’s Deworming Protocol They are called silent killers and thieves but they aren't hypertension, diabetes, heart disease, or cancer. In horses, I am referring to those pesky intestinal parasites otherwise known as worms. There are more than 150 species of intestinal worms that our horses have to contend with today. The most common problematic species being the small strongyles, roundworms, large strongyles, pinworms, lungworms, and threadworms, with bots, which are not worms but fly larvae, also a problem. These worms can cause internal damage without even realizing your horse is infected. Outward signs of intestinal worm infection can range from no signs at all to a dull hair coat and unthriftiness to colic and death. Worms rob the horse of valuable nutrients, lower his/ her resistance to infection, and can cause permanent damage to internal organs. The strategies of deworming every 8 to 12 weeks for parasite control is based on knowledge and concepts that are more than 45 years old…much has changed over this time. Anthelmintic (dewormer) resistance (AR) is a current topic of concern. AR by definition is the ability of worms to survive treatments that are generally effective against the same species and stage of infection. This is an inherited trait, but remains rare until some type of selective pressure occurs…in this case, deworming is the pressure that selects for resistance. So how do we get anthelmintic resistance? Basically, after a dewormer is administered, all susceptible worms die off. These worms won’t begin to reproduce and lay

eggs for anywhere from 4 to 12 weeks after dosing. In the interim, the resistant worms that were not killed are able to reproduce in the absence of competition. Thus, the frequency of their genes increases slowly but surely in the population. When the same dewormer is used exclusively or when treatments are administered with excessive frequency, the resistant worms are the only ones in the whole population that can still reproduce; this practice accelerates the rate of resistance development. Once the resistant worms make up a significant part of the population, dewormers are no longer effective in treating them. There are currently only three classes of dewormers available with no new classes of drugs in our future. These are: Benzimidazoles (active ingredient Fenbendazole, Oxibendazole): these interfere with the worm’s energy metabolism at a cellular level. Tetrahydropyrimidines (active ingredient Pyrantel Pamoate, Pyrantel Tartrate): these act at the neuromuscular junction causing irreversible rigid paralysis. Macrocyclic Lactones (active ingredient Moxidectin, Ivermectin): these act on glutamate-gated chloride channels on the worm nerve and muscle cells causing flaccid paralysis. The Isoquinoline-Pyrozines (active ingredient Praziquantel) is an additional drug that is only effective

you do not wait a suitable period of time following treatment, then the results of the FEC will only reflect the efficacy of the last dewormer used rather than measuring the innate ability of the horse’s immune system to regulate levels of egg shedding.

Pictured above are strongyle and roundworm eggs. These are just two of the more than 150 species of intestinal worms that our horses have to contend with today.

against tapeworms. There are currently three types of deworming protocols that are still in use. The original one is called rotational interval dosing. This is deworming based on egg reappearance period after treatment with a dewormer. The deworming companies used to encourage this type of deworming. It is based on concepts developed 40 years ago when large strongyles were a common parasitic pathogen of horses. Because it took about 2 months for strongyles eggs to reappear after treatment, deworming every 8 weeks was a successful treatment in controlling eggs from being shed into the environment. It is an easy protocol to follow however, if you are still using this today, it results in deworming horses that do not need it thus contributing to drug resistance as well as using dewormers that are not effective due to drug resistance. The next protocol is called strategic dosing. This involves deworming at key times when worm burdens are thought to be highest. The problems with this approach come when abnormal patterns of weather lead to early or late peak pasture counts or when heavily infected horses are added to the population. The final and probably best protocol to use at this time is targeted strategic dosing. This protocol administers dewormers at the most appropriate times of the year based on the life cycle and environmental factors and takes into account the level of infection in individual horses by monitoring individual fecal worm egg counts (FEC) and can determine if the dewormer you are using is effective with fecal egg count reduction testing (FECRT). Although horses grazing together share the same parasitic population, they can demonstrate huge differences in their level of egg shedding. FEC is used to identify horses most susceptible to worms and that are contaminating the pasture. In order to determine egg shedding potential for an individual horse it is necessary to collect a fecal sample and perform an FEC after the effects of the last dewormer administered are completely gone. If

In general, to properly evaluate egg shedding status in adult horses, a fecal sample should be collected a minimum of 4 weeks beyond the egg reappearance period (ERP) for the last dewormer used. Here are the suggested collection times: after moxidectin (ERP = 10-12 weeks): wait ≥ 16 weeks to collect; after ivermectin (ERP = 6-8 weeks): wait ≥ 12 weeks to collect; after benzimidazoles or tetrahydropyrimidines (ERP = 4-5 weeks): wait ≥ 9 weeks to collect. Suggested guidelines for classifying horses into different levels of egg shedding (2013, AAEP Parasite Control Guidelines) are: Low contaminators: 0-200 EPG (eggs per gram of feces) Moderate contaminators: 200-500 EPG High contaminators: >500 EPG Based on the level of egg shedding, selected horses are dewormed while other horses are left untreated in order to reduce the use of deworming drugs and therefore the likelihood of resistance. The FECRT is used to determine if strongyles and/or roundworms are resistant to a given dewormer. In brief, a fecal sample is collected prior to deworming. The dewormer in question is administered and a fecal sample is collected 14 days following treatment. The number of eggs in the pre-treatment and post-treatment fecal samples is used to calculate the percent reduction in FEC. This value is then used to make inferences regarding the presence or absence of drug resistance. Ideally you want at least a 90% reduction in egg count. When you see less than 90%, the dewormer’s effectiveness is questionable and less than 80%, the dewormer is not effective and is a sign of worm resistance to that dewormer. Because strongyle resistance is well documented against benzimidazoles and tetrahydopyrimidines with reported signs of emerging resistance to the macrocyclic lactones, horse owners must change their way of thinking when it comes to deworming their horse(s). The overall goal of a parasite control program should be to minimize the risk of parasitic disease; to control egg shedding; and to maintain efficacious dewormers and avoid further development of dewormer resistance. To achieve these goals you must know the magnitude of egg shedding of individual horses and treat only those horses within their current shedding category with efficacious dewormers.

Exciting Sponsored Stakes Added for 2015 and 2016 DIAR Adds the USA to Their Growing International Support of Arabian Racing The committee of the Dubai International Arabian Races (DIAR) are delighted to announce that four races in the USA have been added to their international schedule for 2015. DIAR shares a patron with Shadwell Estate Company Ltd in the UK in HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum which stands three Arabian stallions in the USA. It was thought appropriate to consolidate and compliment this support of Arabian breeding with sponsorship of Arabian racing in the region. The Dubai International Arabian Races schedule has developed significantly in recent years and 2015 has seen the addition of The Netherlands and now the USA to the programme. The inaugural DIAR races will be held at Lone Star Park, Dallas, Texas on Friday, November 13, 2015 and are run in conjunction with TABA (Texas Arabian Breeders’ Association), AJC (Arabian Jockey Club) and ARC (Arabian Racing Cup). Speaking on behalf of Shadwell Estate Company Ltd (UK) and DIAR, Shadwell Stud Director Richard Lancaster commented on the decision to take DIAR to the USA: “Having stood three Arabian stallions in the USA for a number of years and with the development on the DIAR programme in a new phase, the committee of DIAR felt the time was right to offer our support to Arabian racing here. We are delighted to be able to bring a new dimension to the programme and are very much looking forward to the first ever Dubai International Arabian Races in North America.” In response, Dennie Gault of Race Street Management and Chief Steward of the Arabian Racing Cup said: “On behalf of the Arabian racing organizations of America, I would like to thank HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum and the committee of the Dubai International Arabian Races for their decision to sponsor Arabian racing in this country. As the North America agent for Shadwell Arabian Stallions, I know what it means to have the support of the Shadwell operation behind you and this addition to the Arabian racing industry is a real boost. We have all worked hard to bring this project to fruition and I urge owners and trainers to make the most of this opportunity and run their horses on November 13th at Lone Star Park!” The races will comprise two Futurity stakes races for 3-year-olds over six furlongs: The DIAR 2015 Texas Lone Star Futurity for Colts and Geldings and the www.shadwellarabian.co.uk Texas Lone Star Futurity for Fillies. A further two races will be the Dubai International Arabian Races 2015 Texas Open Stakes and the Shadwell Arabian Stallions Texas Distaff Stakes. Total prize money for the four races is a minimum of $100,000 put up jointly between DIAR and TABA. 1. Specifics for each race are: Dubai International Arabian Races 2015 Texas Open Stake Conditions: 3-year-olds and up, distance of 1 1/16 miles Purse: $30,000 Shadwell Arabian Stallions Texas Distaff Stake Conditions: 3-year-olds and up females, distance of 1 mile Purse: $30,000

$50,000 HH Sheikha Fatima Bint Mubarak Open Race Announced for 2016 in Los Angeles The HH Sheikh Mansoor Bin Zayed Al Nahyan Global Arabian Horse Flat Racing Festival’s 6th World Arabian Horse Conference at the Ufficio Primo in Warsaw came to a close on Saturday, May 30, with a lively workshop during which a series of announcements were made. The workshop was the final meeting of the Conference, and the session was conducted by Ms Lara Sawaya, Executive Director of the HH Sheikh Mansoor Bin Zayed Al Nahyan Global Arabian Horse Flat Racing Festival, Chairman of the International Federation of Horse Racing Academies (IFHRA), Chairman of Ladies & Apprentice Racing Committees in the International Federation of Arabian Horse Racing Authorities (IFAHR) and noted TV race presenter Derek Thompson. It produced frank and healthy exchanges between delegates. For people in the United States, the various Arabian bodies of the were urged to make a united effort to promote Purebred Arabian racing, and Ms Sawaya announced a new race to be run during the annual HH Sheikha Fatima Bint Mubarak International Awards and the USA Darley Awards. “We are happy to announce another big race event and this time. It will be held on the sidelines of the HH Sheikha Fatima Bint Mubarak International Awards and the USA Darley Awards. The race will be run in the name of Her Highness Sheikha Fatima Bint Mubarak, Mother of the UAE, Chairperson of the General Women’s Union, Supreme Chairperson of the Family Development Foundation and Chairwoman of the Supreme Council for Motherhood and Childhood and Mother of the World,” said Sawaya. This open race for Purebred Arabians will be held in Los Angeles on April 3, 2016, and will carry a purse of $50,000. More details will be released as they become available. 17 • Arabian Finish Line • July 2015


Uniting the World in Warsaw Text by Debbie Burt Photos by Pamela Burton The sixth HH Sheikh Mansoor bin Zayed Al Nahyan Global Arabian Horse Flat Racing Festival continues to grow in stature. Previously it has been held in Abu Dhabi, The Hague, Berlin, Toulouse and last year, in London. With over 400 delegates from 80 countries attending, events began with a welcome address.

worldwide, it was generally approved, particularly for the more fragile mares. However regulation was considered appropriate and at the end of the discussion, the audience poll revealed the majority were in favour of embryo transfer, but ideally limited to one foal per year. Racing and Training A predictably lively discussion about handicapping ensued. Naturally The United States was well represented at the World Arabian Horse Racing Conference. Attending were (left to right) Sam Vasquez, Jeanne Wasserman, this varies widely from Stephanie Corum, Randy Gault, Denise Gault, Mei Davis, Mickey Morgan, Mi- country to country - some chelle Morgan, Lynn Ashby and Steve Burton. Also present, but not pictured, have one handicapper, were Denise Hurst, Kathy Smoke, Paul Smoke and Pamela Burton (who took others more. this photo).

Ms Lara Sawaya, Executive Director of the HH Sheikh Mansoor Bin Zayed Al Nahyan Global Arabian Horse Flat Racing Festival and Chairman of Ladies & Apprentice Racing Committees, Chairman of the International Federation of Horse Racing Academies, introduced HH Sheikh Mansoor Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, UAE Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Presidential Affairs who said “The Arabian racing family is spread all over the globe and hence there are innumerable hurdles faced by the respective national organizations in finding a common ground. Such periodical meetings like the WAHRC go a long way in bridging the gap and offer a great opportunity to find solutions. Regular meetings, discussions, exchange of expertise augur well for the future of Purebred Arabian racing.”

However it should not be forgotten that the horse population in these countries varies widely too, so it is difficult to produce a rule to suit each situation. The poll at the end indicated that three handicappers were preferable for the majority of the audience. In the UAE there are so many horses, that options for the less able were very limited – not a situation familiar in the UK or USA where numbers of registered racing Arabians are at an all time low.

Breeding Improving the breed revolved around good conformation, good foundation mares and the price of stallions around the world. Panellists agreed that whilst the cost was important, so was selecting the right stallion for the mare, not necessarily the most expensive. Breeder’s premiums were approved as a way of encouraging breeders to produce more stock and to stay involved once their horses had been sold. The pros and cons of embryo transfer were then discussed. Given the shortage of breeding stock and the varying rules

Weight Loss Control Dr George Wilson produced the latest study by his team at John Moores Liverpool University, funded by the Festival. It showed how male and female jockeys routinely presented a higher body fat percentage than other elite athletes and discussed how, by using tailored diets and exercise, this could be reduced. Rules, Conditions and Regulations The International Agreement was discussed. Vice Chairman of IFAHR, Genny Haynes confirmed that each country is entitled to select which articles they agree to, if not all of them and that some countries are still discussing with their authorities, which they have to do, before they can come back to IFAHR. Women in Racing Hosted by Australia’s first female race caller, Victoria Shaw, it included four Darley Award winners in Denise Gault, Denise Hearst, Nadine Frampton and Karin Van Den Bos. The panel agreed that whilst there is still prejudice in some areas, women are achieving more in higher positions, including in Arabian racing. “One has to just believe in one’s ability and move forward, despite any adverse comments from our male counterparts,” explained Ms Sawaya. Media, PR & Communications Constraints on how much news can go in the print editions was discussed. This is not an issue with digital media, new publications such as The Arabian Racehorse [and now Arabian Finish Line], are digital and so there is no limit to the number of pages. Arabian Finish Line was also praised for its content, in particular the statistics. All were in agreement that more information needed to be shared by the various organisations and connections within Arabian racing, so that they may publicise it to the world. International Federation of Horse Racing Academies (IFHRA) General Assembly

France, Hong Kong, Hungary, Morocco, Sultanate of Oman, Portugal, Poland, Turkey, Slovakia and Sweden, whilst the membership of two more countries, Bahrain and Switzerland, are pending. Also announced was the establishment of the IFHRA Racing Scholarship Fund, for which US $100,000 has been earmarked. It is hoped that in the beginning, it will benefit apprentice jockeys (approximately 10-20), enabling them to spend time with mentors to progress their careers, even in cases when they are not able to continue race riding, should they choose a new direction within the industry. Future of Arabian Racing Whilst it is thriving in some countries such as the UAE, others including the USA and the UK were facing a downturn in numbers. Both Sam Vasquez and Bill Smith (UK trainer and breeder) were both concerned by the lack of breeders and felt more encouragement was required. From the open workshop session, hosted by Ms Lara Sawaya, it was apparent that there would need to be further harmonization of the rules between WAHO and IFAHR as many owners and breeders were frustrated by the rules governing transportation between countries and qualifying criteria for racing. Ms Sawaya also encouraged those IFAHR members who were yet to sign up to the International Agreement to take action as soon as possible in order to move forward. In support of Arabian racing in the US she announced a new race, to be held as part of the HH Sheikha Fatima Bint Mubarak International Awards and the USA Darley Awards, to be run in the name of HH Sheikha Fatima Bint Mubarak, Mother of the UAE, Chairperson of the General Women’s Union, Supreme Chairperson of the Family Development Foundation and Chairwoman of the Supreme Council for Motherhood and Childhood and Mother of the World. With a prize fund of $50,000, the Open race will be held in Los Angeles on April 3, 2016.

and ‘communication’ and encouraged a united front to promote Arabian racing and to protect the purebred Arabian horse. That evening guests of the Festival were treated to a spectacular Gala Dinner in the grounds of the 17th century Palace of King John Sobieski III at Wilanov where Ms Sawaya announced that the 2016 conference would be held in Rome, Italy. The HH Sheikh Mansoor Bin Zayed Al Nahyan Global Arabian Horse Flat Racing Festival is sustained by the Abu Dhabi Tourism and Culture Authority and coordinated by Abu Dhabi Sports Council in cooperation with Emirates Racing Authority, IFAHR, Emirates Arabian Horse Society, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, General Authority of Youth and Sports Welfare with The National Archives as the official partner and Emirates airline as the official carriers and sponsored by Invest AD, Tourism Development & Investment Company (TDIC), Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC), Al Awani General Enterprises, Kabale, Al Wathba Centre, the UAE's General Women's Union, the HH Sheikha Fatima Bint Mubarak Ladies Sports Academy, Abu Dhabi International Hunting and Equestrian Exhibition 2015, Dr. Nader Saab Switzerland, Al Wathba Center, Abu Dhabi Equestrian Club, Eastern Mangroves Suites-Abu Dhabi by Jannah, Yas Channel, Omeir Travels and Racing Post.

Impressions of a First Time Attendee By Stephanie J. Corum As this was my first time at the World Conference, everything was new and impressive to me. As expected, no detail was overlooked and every event was first class. But what does attending this conference do for racing in the U.S.? First of all it gives us a chance to realize we are not alone in our struggles. Countries such as the U.K. and the Netherlands are having some of the best purses ever, yet have a significant shortage of horses. (Sound familiar?) Other countries battle obstacles we do not face here, but it is encouraging to know that everyone faces challenges, and we are in this game together. And then there is what Denise Gault called "our international family". Going to these events gives you a chance to interact with people from all over the world - make new friends - network with new contacts - and build support and momentum for Arabian racing. As a result of this meeting I was able to talk to people I had only ever corresponded with via email. I met journalists and photographers from different countries that I hope to work with in the future. I handed out many magazines and business cards and even picked up one subscription. Most importantly, I put a name and a face to Arabian Finish Line. I was extremely honoured to speak on the Media/PR and Communications panel. I knew I had plenty to contribute on the subject, but what I didn't expect to hear was the praise for Finish Line. This magazine is known and respected throughout the world on a level I didn't realize until I was there. Lara Sawaya said "everyone in the world knows Finish Line". Khalid Khalifa Al Nabooda, a respected businessman and breeder from the U.A.E., spoke very highly of the magazine, its stories and statistics. He even said that "everyone in the world should subscribe". I am humbled by this high praise, and I came back with a new enthusiasm and motivation. It is my goal to bring Arabian Finish Line to as many people as possible in the best way possible.

Three lovely California ladies enjoy the races at Tor Sluzewiec. Left to right are Denise Hurst of Arabian Horse World, Pamela Burton of Horsereporter.com and Denise Gault of Race Street Management Inc.

I would personally like to thank Lara Sawaya and the HH Sheikh Mansoor bin Zayed al Nahyan Festival for this fantastic opportunity and for making it all possible. I look forward to participating in future events and seeing my "international family" again soon.

The HH Sheikh Mansoor Bin Zayed Al Nahyan Festival Races Add Exciting Finish to Conference Text and photos by Debbie Burt The delegates and guests of the HH Sheikh Mansoor bin Zayed Al Nayhan World Arabian Horse Racing Conference travelled out to Tor Sluzeweisc – once Europe’s largest racecourse – to watch a nine race card including five Arabian races, three of which were run as part of the Festival. The feature race of the day, the HH Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nayhan International Cup, was over 1 1/2 miles. The only international representative was Ameretto (FR). Though trained in Germany by Gunter Richter, he is a course specialist at Tor Sluzeweisc, having won the HH Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nayhan Europa Cup (Gr.3 PA) three times previously and is also a three time European Triple Crown winner. Though beaten on his seasonal debut, better was expected on his favourite course and he was reunited regular partner, Manuel Manueddu, who had steered him to 11 previous victories. His biggest dangers were the unbeaten Westim (POL), last year’s Polish Derby winner, Ziko (POL) and the only filly in the race, Wameria (POL), who had not been out of the

frame in all seven starts to date. From the widest draw Tyl (DE) was quickly encouraged into the lead and went a good four lengths clear of the field, led by Ameretto, heading into the first turn away from the stands. Racing keenly, Aziz (POL) was a length further behind, in company with Westim. Ziko, coltish in the preliminaries, was already being bumped along at the rear. There was little change in the placings until rounding the home bend into the straight, when Tyl’s lead began to diminish and Ameretto poised to challenge on his outside. As Maneddu made his move, Westim went with him, along with Boy Mugatin (POL), though Ameretto always had the measure of his younger rivals, winning by a half a length. His owners Dr Paul and Manuella Daverio were delighted with their homebred's performance, after the race Manuella Daveiro said “He will be back here in August, but first we will go to Holland.”

Ameretto holds off Westim to win the Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan International Cup - Ofir S.


As they entered the straight, Averbak was hard at work on Karla Al Khalediah and as the field closed up, there appeared to be many with chances. However Vande Velde brought Perfektor wide and appeared to have plenty in hand and as the field spread across the track, the gelding quickened clear. Sariah Alkhalediah and Walsh valiantly gave chase and looked booked for second, but Benefis and Morocco’s Omar Lajkal took that spot on the rail, though only just hanging on at the finish. It was an impressive performance by Perfektor, who, despite running the last furlong with a loose shoe flapping on his off hind, still drew clear by over 10 lengths. “I have heard so much about the final meeting held in Abu Dhabi and now that I have qualified, I can’t wait till November. This has been such a great experience and I think I was just lucky to be here, but to cap that with a win, it simply great,” said Vande Velde. The last, but by no means least, of the Festival races was the HH Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak Ladies World Championship held over 1 1/8 miles for Polish-bred Arabians. Riding to instructions, the 22 year-old Moroccan, Bouchra Marmoul, went straight to the front on Wasilew and despite a strong challenge from Ireland’s Aileen O’Sullivan on Zahim, she was never headed. Kasir Al Kahalediah ridden by Tjarda Humphreij was a strong finishing third. Last minute substitute Zoe Vande Velde from Belgium made the most of her opportunity by winning the HH Sheikha Fatima Bint Mubarak Apprentice World Championship aboard Perfektor.

The Apprentice race did not lack for drama from the start, with a last minute substitute jockey, 21 year-old Zoe Vande Velde (Belgium) taking the place of Ali Alshowaikh (Bahrain), 30 minutes before the draw. With Wilden a non-runner and replaced by Etnum Psyche, the field was led by Karla Al Khalediah and Turkey’s Burak Averbak, narrowly heading Dirhem and Luke Leadbitter for the UK on the rail. Corrine Andros (Canada) on Etnum Psyche was soon challenging and took the lead from Karla Al Khalediah with Dirhem and Leadbitter three lengths back in third, ahead of Perfektor (POL) and Vande Velde, with Sariah Alkhalediah and Eoin Walsh (IRE) traveling well in behind.

She is one of only three lady riders in her native Morocco, the other two being apprentices. Fighting back the tears following her win she explained. “Having been placed in this race series, I am now finally so happy to have won and am looking forward to the Abu Dhabi showdown in November.”

Morocco's Bouchra Marmoul went wire-to-wire on Wasilew to win the HH Shikha Fatima bint Mubarak Ladies World Championship. 22 • Arabian Finish Line • July 2015


MS Dixie Makes Horse Racing History in the COBRA Distaff Sprint (G3) By Jonathan Horowitz: Twitter @jjhorowitz

Aurora, CO (June 14, 2015) – Ms Dixie became the first horse in the history of Arapahoe Park to win the same stakes race four times with a hard-fought victory in Sunday’s COBRA Distaff Sprint (G3), sponsored by MKP Enterprises. Owned by the Quarter Moon Ranch of Lori Powell and husband/trainer Scott Powell, the 7-year-old gray mare also won the $25,000 Grade 3 stakes race for Arabian fillies and mares over six furlong in 2012, 2013, and 2014. “Isn’t that amazing? This was a good, tough race. It’s great teamwork,” Scott Powell said. Ms Dixie has won Darley Awards as champion Arabian 4-year-old filly in the United States in 2012 and champion Arabian older mare in 2013 and 2014. She is attempting to become the first horse since the Darley Awards began in 1987 to be recognized as a U.S. champion in four consecutive years. In Sunday’s renewal of the COBRA Distaff Sprint (G3), Ms Dixie and jockey Karlo Lopez stalked the pace and asserted

in the homestretch for a 2 1/4-length win in 1:20.00 as the 1-5 favorite in the field of seven. Four different jockeys have ridden Ms Dixie, now a winner of 18 of 40 lifetime races for $230,112 in career earnings, in her four COBRA Distaff Sprint wins—Michael Iammarino in 2012, Carl Williams in 2013, Mike Luark in 2014, and Lopez in 2015. “Everyone thinks it’s the rider,” Scott Powell joked. Powell stablemate Sand On Fire took second ridden by Travis Wales, and Mark Powell-trained Ivory Shores and jockey Iammarino were third.

Aurora, CO (May 24, 2015) – Es Mi Cielo’s second victory in one week in the His Highness Sheikh Mansoor Bin Zayed Al Nahyan Global Arabian Horse Flat Racing Festival and Ms Dixie’s successful Colorado homecoming highlighted the Arabian action on a busy opening weekend of the 2015 season at Arapahoe Park in Aurora, Colorado. One week after he won the Her Highness Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak Apprentice World Championship at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Es Mi Cielo dominated Sunday’s six-furlong Wathba Stud Farm Cup at Arapahoe Park. Ridden by Kelly Bridges for trainer Renee Lafleur and owner Sam Vasquez, Es Mi Cielo scored a 5 1/2-length victory over RB Rich and Chndakasexpress in a time of 1:21.40. “He’s really starting to mature and come around,” Lafleur said of the 4-year-old gray colt sired by Burning Sand out of the dam Heaven Kan Wait. “We sent him straight from Kentucky to Colorado to give him some time to settle, and it all worked out.” Lafleur said Es Mi Cielo will remain in Colorado to contest Arapahoe Park’s COBRA Sprint on June 21, a race Es Mi Cielo’s older brother, Sammy V, won in 2014. The last time Ms Dixie was at Arapahoe Park, the three-time Darley Award winner became the first horse in the history of the track to win two stakes races in two days in the COBRA Distaff Sponsored by Soaring Eagle Ranch on August 16, 2014, and the COBRA Classic Sponsored by Crow Valley Ranch on August 17, 2014. In Saturday’s six-furlong Altitude Sports Race of the Day, the 7-year-old mare owned by the Quarter Moon Ranch of Lori Long and husband trainer Scott Powell kept her gray coat clean in the mud by making the lead en route to a 7 1/2-length win. “She looked as smooth as she ever looked, from the beginning all the way to the end,” Powell said. The His Highness Sheikh Mansoor Bin Zayed Al Nahyan Global Arabian Horse Flat Racing Festival is also the title sponsor of the new Gates Open at Arapahoe Park feature television show and the Today at Arapahoe Park replay show that air on Altitude Sports & Entertainment. The festival features Arabian races in several series that take place in 17 countries on six continents. 24 • Arabian Finish Line • July 2015
