Sheikh Rashid bin Humaid Al Nuaimi’s Rayya went to the lead at the start of Thursday’s $250,000 UAE Oaks (G3) at Meydan and led all the way, cruising to victory by 3-3/4 lengths. It’s the first stakes win for the 3-year-old daughter of Tiz Wonderful, trained by Doug Watson, now 4-2-2-0 with earnings of $244,507 to date. She breezed an eighth in :10 1/5 at the Under Tack Show before she was purchased out of the Shooting Star Sales LLC consignment at the 2017 OBS April Sale. watch her under tack video
