The UAE's Mohammed Al Kumeiti won the opening event in the three-day CSI-A Abu Dhabi 2003, an international showjumping event which began here at the Abu Dhabi Equestrian Club jumping arena. In the International Table A event which is timed against the clock, Kumeiti clocked 61.3 seconds in a field in which eight riders did clear rounds. Riding Mephisto, Kumeiti led a UAE sweep of the first three places as Khalid Al Juneibi on Cultivee finished second with 64.01 secs while Abdulla Humaid on Clam De Jones clocked 66.57 in third. Colombia's Andres Penalosa (67.68) on Peter finished fourth.

Prince Abdullah bin Mateb Al Saud of Saudi Arabia riding Algettamiah did very well to also compile a clear round but finished sixth with 68.28 behind the UAE's Mohammed Al Owais on Suzuki Ratkera with a timing of 67.84. Sheikh Majid Al Qassimi on Fakir du Boulay and Qatar's Awad Qhatami (Clarke du Jardin) were the other two riders who did a clear round and finished in the top eight.

Prince Bader bin Mohammed bin Saud Al Kabeer also took part in the event. Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Chairman Board of Directors of ADEC attended yesterday's action in which top riders from the region took part.

Princess Haya bint Hussein also took part in the championship in the International Grand Prix event. Interesting fare is on the cards in today's main event, the International Abu Dhabi Team Championship which starts at 4 pm in the afternoon. Earlier at 8.30 am, the International Table A (American Style) event will be held. A total of Dh 200,000 is on offer for the various events which includes the International Grand Prix tomorrow evening. (The Gulf News)
