Kim Hye Sun, who last week became the first Korean woman to ride 100 career winners, was in action in the United Arab Emirates last night.
Kim made the trip to compete in the “HH Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak Ladies World Championship” challenge race at the Abu Dhabi Equestrian Club.
Riding 7-year-old Arabian gelding Al Mouttakel, Kim finished the race – which was won by Omani jockey Salima Al Taleei on the Jaci Wickam trained Kareem W’Rsan – in 7th place.
The race comments for Al Mouttakel were “Soon led, headed 400m out, weakened final 200m”. Kim, currently lies in 12th place in the Seoul Jockey Championship, despite spending a large portion of the year out injured.
