In the colours of H.H. Sheikh Mohammed Bin Khalifa Al Thani, KHATEER ALKHALEDIAH (KSA) (Laith Al Khalediah x Edele De Carrere) kept his winning streak when victorious at the Spanish track of San Sebastian in the Wathba Stallions Cup on Wednesday, 9 June. This was a third straight win for this five-year-old Purebred Arabian horse, who is trained in France by Mrs. JF. Bernard. He was ridden to a half-length victory by jockey Gary Sanchez in this 1,600-meter contest for four-year-old and older Purebred Arabians.
KHATEER ALKHALEDIAH debuted his five-race career in France in February at Pau when he finished seventh over 2,000m. He followed that by a second seventh place over 2,300m at Tarbes in April. His trainer then brought him back to the mile distance in May and since then has been unbeaten over this shorter trip with two wins at Waregem, Belgium in early and mid-May, leading him into toady’s victory.
Bred in Saudi Arabia by Al Khalediah Stables, KHATEER ALKHALEDIAH is by LAITH AL KHALEDIAH. He comes from a French female line, as his dam EDELE DE CARRERE, who carries the FR suffix, is a direct female descendant of French foundation Purebred Arabian mare NEVADA II.
