The Arabian Racehorse in partnership with Equine MediRecord brings you the Arabian racing podcast
thearabianracehorse.com Maiden Stakes 3.30pm today at Wolverhampton
The Arabian Racehorse magazine was delighted with the 13 declarations for thearabianracehorse.com maiden stakes to be run at Wolverhampton today, Tuesday 29 September. The one-mile contest continues the run of well-supported races held by the Arabian Racing Organisation this season and is scheduled to go off at 3.30pm.

Magazine editor Debbie Burt, who also acts as media executive for the Arabian Racing Organisation commented: “It may only be a maiden, but it looks a really competitive affair. There are some very well-bred young horses in the field and I’m sure there will be plenty of winners to come out of it in the future, at all levels.

“It has been a difficult year for racing and for Arabian racing in particular with the season pushed back in the calendar. However, with Arabians being slower to mature than thoroughbreds this late start has been to their advantage, so it’s great that more than half the field are three-year-olds. I’m also delighted that despite the challenges, we have new owners and trainers getting involved this season which is of huge benefit to the diversity of the sport and can only bode well for the future.”

Top-rated is the James Owen trained Wanaasa [pictured above], for her owner-breeder and ARO patron, HH Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum. She travelled well for a long way on her debut at the track earlier this month when third and looks capable of improving on that position. As a three-year-old filly she gets all the allowances, but so will her stablemate Nasaayim and the Phil Collington trained Jamaraat, who will also be carrying the blue and white silks on their debuts. Other debutants to note include Athbah Stud’s Dergham Athbah for Collington and Toofan another Owen, Maktoum challenger. 
New owners include Mrs Jane Marson who has Heritage Vadel [above] with James Owen, whilst other fresh faces include Qatar’s Mohammed Al-Attiyah and Newmarket based trainer Jessica Quinlan. They secured debut success at the Midlands track earlier this month with Al Shaamikh and will be hoping that Toufan Du Croate, who also ran in that race, can improve stepped up in trip. 

Forta Stud’s Serafim Forta fits a similar profile, he raced prominently alongside Toufan Du Croate before being outpaced and is another who will appreciate a greater stamina test. Time may show that may also apply to French import Gerko De Tenelle, trained by Jayme Plumb, who she owns in partnership with her husband Darren. He made in his UK debut in the UAE President Cup (UK Arabian Derby) and will find this less of a challenge.
