The four-year-old filly Worood (Akbar x Starmania by Kerbella) easily lifted the opener of the French season, when she stormed home in the Prix du Haras de Gélos-Wathba Stud Farm Cup at the Pau racecourse.

Owned by the Royal Cavalry of Oman and ridden by Ioritz Mendizabal, this was a first victory in France for her. She had won a race at Windsor in August last year.

Trained by Charles Gourdain, Worood was the author of a great season in 2015, which included two second places behind Mabrooka in the Group 1 PA Qatar Arabian Trophy des pouliches de trois ans at Saint-Cloud and in the Group 2 PA French Arabian Breeders’ Challenge des pouliches de trois ans at Toulouse.
