In The Jebel Ali Racing Club Banded Stakes


he first full days racing of the 2005 Arabian Season saw a well attended meeting, good racing and a winning treble for jockey Mr David Turner who opened with FRENCH LIEUTENANT winning the Dragnet Ltd Handicap Stakes for trainer Miss C J Legg, quickly followed by a cheeky, facile win on THE VERTUOUS CRUSADER in the Clarendon Stud Handicap Stakes, over one mile, trained by Tony Brunton and owned by Mr J Cook. David Turner's third success of the day came on CS KHAMSIN in the Ajay Construction Maiden Stakes, another winner for the Brunton family. Bred by Mr M D Brunton, CS KHAMSIN is a four year old colt by Khairouan (FR) (Winner of 7 races from 1m to 1m 4f) out of Samara Bint Samurai (Winner of four races) and, despite running green on his debut, he was a most impressive winner. This augurs well for his future. Other Winners on the day were SABEZ for the David Paton team and the BXPS Racing Partnership, ZA'EEMAH, ridden by Sam Holdsworth for H H SHeik Mohammed Bin R Al Makti and trained by Bill Smith who followed up with FRIPON AL MAURY, ridden by Simon Walker, in the fifth race on the card.
