Jamal Din Wali wins Omar Mukhtar Cup, which was held in Lahore Racecourse Park, after defeating eight rivals.
Thoroughbred favourite filly Jamal Din Wali outclassed eight rivals to win in style the Omar Mukhtar Cup, the feature event of the Lahore Winter Meeting, here at the Racecourse on Sunday.
The daughter of prominent sire Tybalt (USA), Jamal Din Wali had to exert her full potential while fighting a neck-and-neck battle with outsider colt Professor before beating him by one-and-a-half length with Royal Nawab coming third and nosing out Surkhab to fourth position.
Owned by Makhdum Syed Ahmad Mahmud and trained by Shahid Rehman, the winner was guided to a remarkable victory by jockey Aftab Choudhry. Syed Murtaza Mahmud received the cup on behalf of his revered father from the thoroughbred breeder Syeda Abida Hussain soon after the fifth race.
Earlier, bay colt Amazing Runner edged out bay horse Khadim at the finish line to win the Khalid Bin Waleed Cup under the experienced hands of veteran jockey Aamir Pervez with colt Pehlwan coming third.
