Qatari rider Saeed Nasser Al Qadi yesterday produced a well-timed routine with Daydreamer Ec, clinching the feature event on the final day of the third round of the hugely popular Hathab Series.

Daydreamer Ec managed a flawless ride with Al Qadi, clocking a time of 38.99 seconds to win the 1.30/1.40m competition in jump-off at Al Shaqab Arena.

The Qatari, who won the 1.20/1.30m class with Jessico on Thursday, yesterday emerged a pleased man with his second win of the three-day event devised to groom young riders.

“I am very happy. This has been a great week of riding for me. We are enjoying competing in the Hathab Series,” Al Qadi said. “This series is helping the young riders learn a lot,” he added.
