Connor Beasley has set the early pace at the top of the UAE Jockeys' Championship after notching his third victory over the weekend.
After a double on the opening night of the UAE's horse racing season at Meydan on Thursday night, Beasley returned from the country's capital Abu Dhabi, with another win.
Beasley guided the Helal Al Alawi-trained Alnawar to a dramatic win in the Baynounah Maiden that was contested over seven furlongs. Alnawar, the three-year-old from Nieshan, beat Darya by a neck.
Following wins on Way Of Wisdom and Woodditton, Beasley took his tally to three. He has one second place after Bolereau finished behind Raniah in the Al Khubairah Maiden, also in Abu Dhabi.
He also has two third-place finishes on Alhaan Al Reef in the Al Zahia Handicap and in the capital and onboard Mambo Mischief in the opening race at Meydan.
Meanwhile, seven-time UAE Champion Jockey Tadhg O'Shea opened his account this season by piloting Rb Torch to a one-length victory over Darius Du Paon in the Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan Jewel Crown Prep, the feature race on the card.
Salem bin Ghadayer, meanwhile saddled Mailshot to a 1.25-length win in the Al Reem Handicap, the only Thoroughbred fixture on the card.
