Brazilian jockey lands a treble at the races in the garden city on Friday night

A day after tasting Group 2 success at Meydan, Bernardo Pinheiro conjured a fantastic treble in the 10th meeting of the UAE horse racing season at the Al Ain Racecourse on Friday night.

The Brazilian jockey, who won the Purebred Arabian contest onboard Jayide Al Boraq in Dubai on Thursday night, saddled Dalil De Carrere, Pharitz Al Denari and AF Lewaa to victories in the garden city.

The three wins took Pinheiro level with record eight-time UAE Champion Jockey Tadhg O’Shea in the jockeys’ championship, with six victories.

Pinheiro began the evening by guiding Dalil De Carrere to a 5.25-length victory over Dassan Da in the Wathba Stallions Cup For Private Owner Only, a Purebred Arabian handicap run over 10 furlongs.

He was then onboard Pharitz Al Denari, piloting the Lahoob four-year-old to a 1.5-length win over Ras Alhadd in the Al Basrah Purebred maiden.

And the Brazilian wrapped it up with an astonishing 6.5-length victory with AF Lewaa over Muhaymin in the Oud Al Touba maiden.

The Salem bin Ghadayer-trained Miracle Maker was a 6.25-length victor over Anizzah in the Jebel Hafeet, while Oss won the Shabyat Al Rawdah.

Trainer Mohamed Daggash was on the double as Es Nahawand landed the Sieh bin Amaar after Dalil De Carrere’s success.

AF Almajhaz clinched the Falaj Hazza.
