Faleh Suwead Al Ajami stood out on his 13-year-old chestnut stallion Demilion on Saturday topping the Big Tour class in the eighth round of the Longines Hathab supported by The Social & Sport Contribution Fund at the outdoor arena of Qatar Equestrian Federation.
Al Ajami returned a flawless winning round in 48.98secs to top a 21-rider field. He finished ahead of Nasser Al Ghazali on his trusted bay gelding Quel Homme (50.39secs).
Al Ajami also claimed the third spot on the podium as he rode a second time astride bay gelding Ulano. This time he clocked 55.07secs.
Mohammed Saeed Haidan, who had claimed the Medium Tour title on Friday, this time had to be content with the fourth spot on D Saucedo suffering a fault each both in the first ride and in the winning round.
Earlier, in the Open Class Mini Derby without Jump Off, Ghanim Nasser Al Qadi claimed the first place riding Happy Tina. He clocked 120.41secs to be the fastest.
Jassim Al Jaham Al Kuwari on Sandro Girl was second (123.18) while Mohammed Saeed Haidan on Apple Bee finished third (131.46).
The annual Longines Hathab Qatar Equestrian Tour is held over twelve rounds where the best seven results of the series are taken into account in deciding the overall champions.
With four rounds remaining the championship has now entered the crucial phase where riders will aim to collect as many valuable points as possible.
