Outbox stuns favorites to clinch the HH Amir Trophy

Prior to the HH Amir Trophy (Saturday’s first major race in the same prize pot as the exact distance), many favorites were mentioned, including last year’s winners Noor Alhawa and Helenistic.

But it was the least rated outbox, piloted by Hollie Doyle against a big gun to win the HH Amir Trophy in half length for trainer Archie Watson. “The outbox ran the cracker, but she (Hollie Doyle) gave him a great ride. She put him out and put him in a good position, and he traveled well across his legs. It’s really good, “Watson told the Gulf Times.

A British trainer who praised Qatar’s organization said he loved the atmosphere of a “great” race day. “It’s a great day for racing and a great place to come to Doha. It’s my first time to come to Qatar directly from the UK, but it’s a wonderful and wonderful atmosphere and everyone welcomes us very much. It was really, really good, “she added.

The Lady Princess connection is celebrated after a 6-year-old mare wins the HH Amir Sword for Thoroughbreds at Allayeran Park on Saturday.

Outbox became the second horse to win the Hamburg Racing Silk in Qatar.
