Randaline and Rachiket El Ahlem quickly
took the lead, controlling the event until
the last turn, where they engaged in a
fierce fight, along the straight line
which ended with the victory of Rachiket
El Ahlem, ridden by Romain Doleuze, of
1 L, at the expense of Ragouba (Halim
For the certificates of merit, a beautiful
row could be seen between Randaline and
Rissela which came to an end in this order,
away from Roubbama from which a better performance
had been expected, and Reem Dubai. Rachiket
El Ahlem (Halim and Akkouda) belongs to
Mr. Mohamed Mezghani, a young and enterprising
horse-breeder, and is being trained by Ali
Ben Jaâfar who told us: "It is
about a filly that, very early in life,
revealed capabilities to us. It had begun
quite decently. Her jockey told me that,
at the beginning, she had drawn a little.
He let her do so before taking her back
in the opposite line. It ended well, by
taking the best on Ragouba. It came on well
on this exit and it practically took her
the same time as for the colts. That is
a good sign for a beautiful end of season!..."
Rachiket El Ahlem was 2-year-old when
she started in December, with two third
places in the Gharamy Prize (1,200m),
behind Reem Dubai and Rissela, and it
did not get a good position in UTAP Prize
(gr. III – 1,200m) won by Ragouba,
before Reem Dubai.
Her three-year campaign was launched
in January, with two third places in the
Anded Prizes (1,000m) and Bayram Ettounsi
(gr. III – 1,200m) and a second
place behind Rissela in the Ibn Khaldoun
Prize (gr II-1,400). In February, it ended
third, behind two colts, Rohben and Ribh,
in the Prize of Raccada Stud Farm (gr.
III – 1,600m).
It won her first victory by a short head
on March 5, on the occasion of the Badie
prize (1,000 m), at the expense of Rostom.
On March 26, it was her turn to bow, by
a short head, at the expense of Robbama,
in the Abderrahman-Essaïed Prize (gr.
II – 1,400m). It’s a well-born,
regular filly that, by this victory, confirmed
her traditional ambitions.
