Mumayaza is among the favourites for Sharjah feature.
Anita Annika Sande and her horse ‘For Cash 2’ from Elite Stable was the victor in the closing competition of the 15th week of the Emirates Longines Show Jumping League held at the Sharjah Equestrian and Racing Club (SERC).
Held under the supervision of the UAE Equestrian and Racing Federation (UAEERF), this two-day event will be the first of three nationals held in Sharjah. For the remainder of the season, the shows will be held in the club’s indoor and outdoor arenas.
Some of the leading show jumpers from around the world, including the highest ranked from the UAE and Arab region will take part in the prestigious competition.
The heavy downpour that lashed the UAE for three consecutive days left the track flooded, leaving no room for the race.
“The announcement reflects the UAE leadership’s commitment to implementing sustainability-focused initiatives that seek to ensure a better tomorrow for future generations, Sheikh Mansoor said.
Pakistan-born Khawaja — who moved to Australia aged four — has toured India before, but also faced delays on that occasion with his visa taking longer than Australia-born teammates.
