Emirat De Catana - Race Horse
- Trained by Lucinda Russell - Horse Racing Trainer
Emirat De Cantana is a five year old by the sire Linda's Lad, he stands at 16.1 hands and had been trained by Sean Doyle in Ireland for the point to point circuit. He appeared to travel well in his races but didn't appear to stay 3 miles so a shorter trip will be better for him, he has jumped well in his races and as he strengthens he should develop into a nice horse. He has had quite a few sessions on Lucinda's Water Treadmill to build up his core strength. He is a good looking horse and has settled down hugely since arriving from Ireland. He is an exciting young Scottish prospect. Emirat De Catana is leased to the British Racing Club. See below for his race reviews:
EMIRAT DE CATANA'S RACE REVIEWS
Stuart Redding's review of Emirat De Catana's chasing debut at Kelso 06.10.19
Ratty certainly put us through several contrasting emotions there. After a sticky early leap he quickly established a decent rhythm at the head of affairs and although he couldn’t cope with comfortable winner Looks Like Murt in the home straight, he would have taken second place had he successfully negotiated the final fence. That was a pretty horrible fall and he’ll probably need some time off now, but the over-riding conclusion should be positive because this performance showed he should have a decent future as a chaser.

The final result wasn’t great but this wasn’t a terrible effort as Ratty still had a chance jumping three out but couldn’t sustain his effort on the run to the line. He wouldn’t have enjoyed the rain-softened ground so our unexposed five-year-old should be able to bounce back in more suitable conditions next time.

Stuart Redding's review of Emirat De Catana's run at Perth 24.04.19
As I said pre-race, this looked a bit too hot for our gelding but I think we got about the best result we could realistically have expected, coming out best of the rest behind the three market principals who are all quite useful types. A strong finishing effort after getting outpaced suggests he will benefit from a step up in trip but our fate now rests in the hands of the handicappers.
Stuart Redding's review of Emirat De Catana's run at Newcastle 28.03.19
As the trainer and jockey have already said, this was quite an encouraging display from our boy. It looked as though he was in trouble when the big three kicked clear in the home straight but he plugged on late for a very respectable fourth. Stepping up in trip will bring significant improvement and the handicapper can’t overreact so hopefully we can find him a winnable opportunity soon.
Stuart Redding's review of Emirat De Catana's hurdling debut at Hexham 14.03.19
There was some encouragement to take from this, certainly more so than in his bumper at Ayr, Emirat settling better on this occasion and hurdling competently. It makes sense to press on and get him qualified for handicaps and there are plenty of races for him upcoming from which to gain the necessary experience/qualification.
Stuart Redding's review of Emirat De Catana's run at Ayr 25.02.19
It wasn’t a great outcome but to be honest, we didn’t really think we would be winning this one. Our new recruit didn’t enjoy the steady pace, taking a fierce hold, and he found a few too strong in the closing stages. The whole experience of a day at the races will have done him good and he promises to be much more effective with a set of obstacles to face so let’s tick this off as mission accomplished and hope for better results in the future.
