Owner and Breeder: The Royal Cavalry of Oman.

The Sultanate of Oman is proud to announce that the winner of their 2008 WAHO Trophy is the brave racehorse Mutafani. Bred at the Royal Stud in Oman of mixed Saudi Arabian and Tunisian bloodlines, this attractive grey has raced successfully not only in Oman but also in Europe and the UAE. One of his best achievements in the 2008 season was taking second place in the important Al Hai Group 1 Zaabeel Stakes over 6 furlongs at the prestigious international Dubai Day meeting at Newbury racecourse in the United Kingdom. He has also won over 8 furlongs in Abu Dhabi against very strong opposition. He has therefore been an excellent ambassador for Oman’s home-bred horses both at home and abroad.
