Spain’s Gutierrez aims to repeat 2017 win

Spanish Apprentice jockey Alejandra Gutierrez, last year’s winner of the HH Sheikha Fatima Apprentice World Apprentice Championship race here in Tarbes, France will be looking to repeat that feat once again and qualify for this year’s final to be held in Abu Dhabi in November.
 
Gutierrez had won on Kontrat De Ghazal but not before she spent some anxious moments before the photo declared her the winner in one of the closest finishes.
 
In Sunday’s Prix Fleur D’Avril- HH Sheikha Fatima Apprentice World Apprentice Championship race here, Gutierrez will be riding Elmanara De Carrere and hope to make it to the final of this premier Apprentice World Championship series.
 
Another Apprentice, Alexandria Bihari from Hungary, was also a finalist last year after winning the HH Sheikha Fatima Apprentice World Apprentice Championship race in Rome. Bihari rides Dame D’Or in Sunday’s 2300-metre race which carries a prize fund of Euros 20,000 and is run under the banner of HH Sheikh Mansoor Bin Zayed Al Nahyan Global Arabian Horse Flat Racing Festival.
 
Siya to be ridden by Poland’s Anna Gil, Dakare De Lardus by French Apprentice Marion Lanave, Djelilla under Sweden’s Allan Walace, Chabotte De Ghazal under Germany’s Nicole Sechi, Engun De Bozouls under Italian Riccardo Iocopini and Caracole De Bozouls under UK’s Gavin Ashton are the others who are in the fray.
