Horse Racing Results: Meydan, January 12 2012, Race 6, 21:35, Al Maktoum Challenge R1 Sponsored By Etisalat

The big race of the evening at Meydan on January 12th 2012 was the Group 3 (thoroughbred) Al Maktoum Challenge R1 Sponsored By Etisalat, the sixth race on the card, which was run over 1600M (approximately 1 mile) on the All Weather surface.

The horses were competing for a share of USD $200,000 in prize money, of which the winner received $120,000.

As ever, in big races at Meydan, Mike de Kock showed himself to be a specialist at producing not one, but two horses for a Group race at the UAE track: de Kock saddled the first two horses home in this black type event, as Musir won with a little in hand under Christophe Soumillon, followed by stablemate Master Of Hounds under Kevin Shea.

Kieren Fallon got Secrecy into third, half a length up on Mendip who was fourth under Frankie Dettori: a pair both trained by Saeed bin Suroor.
