SETIU, Oct 21 (Bernama) -- Wipawan Pawitayalarp of Thailand swept her male counterparts aside to win the Sultan Mizan Cup endurance race for the second consecutive year at the Terengganu International Equestrian Park (TIEP) in Lembah Bidong here Sunday.
The 38-year-old Thai rider who was a cut above the rest, pocketed USD10,000 (RM30,500) and a watch worth RM25,000 for her effort.
Wipawan, riding Mulawa Angelus, swept aside 51 other local and foreign riders to win the 120km race with a time of 7 hours 18 minutes and 8 seconds while the State of Terengganu Endurance Team (STET) rider Mohammad Fuad Hashim clocked 7'28:38s to finish second ahead of Mohd Bukhari Rozali (7'50:45s).
"The heavy rain yesterday added the level of difficulty in the race because the track was heavy, providing a major challenge for the horses," said Wipawan here today.
The Sultan of Terengganu, Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin who also competed in the 120km race on his "RTES Annaversary" horse, later gave away the prizes.
