News for April 2015

Busy beginnings.... 

We have been extremely busy this April with the launch of the new equinITy system which has stimulated a flurry of activity with the team getting out and about giving multiple demonstrations across the country. If you are interested and would like to join the demonstration queue please do get in touch.

Mubtaahij follows the Kentucky Derby with a Belmont Stakes challenge…

After his spectacular win in the UAE Derby, the Mike de Kock trained Mubtaahij made the long journey to America to contest the Kentucky Derby. It was well documented that his trip to Churchill Downs from Dubai wasn’t ideal with him staying longer at Arlington Park in Chicago than originally intended. Despite this he ran with great credit on the day against America’s finest three year olds in the first leg of the Triple Crown. He bypasses the second leg, the Preakness Stakes at Pimlico, to focus on the final leg, the Belmont Stakes in New York, about which Mike stated, “The Belmont Stakes suits us best. Mubtaahij will see out the 2400m and we have more than a month to prepare him.  Mubtaahij will be more settled and he’ll be better for it, he’ll come on from his Derby run.”

His presence in America has generated lots of interest and significant intrigue in equinITy to the point that it captured the attention of the leading American sports channel ESPN who comprehensively featured the system during their pre Kentucky Derby coverage on the day of the race. You can view the coverage below and also see an article which emanated from press information distributed  in relation to Mubtaahij’s work whilst in Chicago and was picked up by America’s leading equine publications including BloodHorse and Thoroughbred Daily News, by clicking here
