Making his second start after an eighth-month lay-off, ETIJAAH seized control before the eighth pole and pulled away for a dominating six-length win in The Entisar-L at Meydan. The homebred son of DAAHER tracked the leaders in third for the first mile of this 1 1/4-mile stakes. He began his rally with 1/4-mile to go, took the lead before they reached the final furlong marker and sprinted away from his 12 challengers, including Graded stakes winners, for an impressive win. Out of Hasheema (IRE), by Darshaan (GB), ETIJAAH notched his eighth win, and second listed stakes victory, and now has career earnings over $329,000. Also on the card, Shadwell Farm’s 2016 Dubai Golden Shaheen-G1 winner MUARRAB (GB) made a victorious return after a nine-month lay-off with his own six-length win in The Garhoud Sprint-L.
