Saleha saddles La Yfootkum to another win

Emirati lady trainer Saleha Al Ghurair scored her second win of the current season when La Yfootkum won the HH Sheikh Mansoor Bin Zayed Al Nahyan Global Arabian Horse Flat Racing Festival’s Wathba Stallions Cup For Private Owners Only race at the Abu Dhabi Equestrian Club racecourse on Sunday.
In a very tight finish, Apprentice jockey Adam McLean on La Yfootkum, held on to stave off a strong challenge from Make Me Rich under Dubai World Cup winning jockey Fernando Jara and Mujahad Qardabiyah under Xavier Ziani to win the 2200m handicap race. All three almost finished together but La Yfootkum finished a short head in front of Make Me Rich and another short head separated the third placed Mujahad Qardabiyah.
It was a second successive win for owner-trainer Saleha Al Ghurair and jockey McLean with the 6-year-old La Yfootkum.
