Sheikh Mohammed-the children's father is always fit and was never fat unlike other Arabian leaders who turned fat when they aged..I think the children got their father's slim genes except for Sheikh Maktoum and Sheikha Latifa--they are the chubby ones among Sheikh Mo's children..

Sheikha Fatima's mother is Sheikha Manal, Hamdan's half sister. She was born in 2006.

I have had to delete tons of unnecessary posts about why Sheikh Rashid wasnt made a Crown Prince, whether he wanted the position or not & arguing posts between members.
We dont know why Sheikh Rashid wasnt chosen for the position this thread isnt to discuss it, this thread is Sheikh Mohammeds children current events. If you would like to continue the discussion of why Sheikh Rashid isnt Crown Prince, please do it via Pm.

  • Threads and posts containing information already posted by others will be deleted or merged; empty posts containing irrelevant short exclamations or comments will be deleted.

Thank you

It makes as much sense as his showing at the President's Cup. Normally when you see an owner selling that many horses, it means they're doing some serious downsizing or they're getting out of the business. Since he's still buying horses to race in the US, he may just be downsizing his UAE stable. Either way, it's enough to raise your eyebrows.

Your last sentence calmed me down as i know nothing about horses.
But why should he wants to do only horse racing in the usa? Maybe more money? What are you thinking?

Rashid has been slowly building up a stable in the US since 2006, and I do mean slowly. He has about six horses racing over here. With the US racing, you can race a horse all year long. You can't do that in the UAE.


The Maktoum Sailing Trophy, held under the patronage of Sheikh Majid, will start on Feb. 25.

Where abouts in the US are his stables and is his horses doing any good? I always sew Rashid heading in the racing direction since he seems always so interested in horse racing. in 2006/2007 he flew to the States to watch his fathers/family horse run which ended up winning. He gave a very good interview as well.

Right now, most of his horses are in Florida for the winter meet at Gulfstream. Once that meet ends, they'll probably move up to New York. He's only had one winner this year, but he's also only had five starts. At the same time, he hit the board in four of those five starts. That's really not bad at all. He has one horse that I'm pretty excited about, a filly named Game Face.

I think she is Sheikh Majid's & Sheikha Maitha's full sister. The last word on her was that she was back in Dubai.

i thought they were brothers and sisters but i thought since maitha, majid and mansour all had names starting with "m" that shamsa might be from a different mom. sometimes parents name their kids with names that all start w same letter but i guess it is just a coinsidense that the other 3 kids have names that start with "m."
