Lisbeg Farms sold Beech Hill Lucia to Ali Al Khorafi at the end of 2017. Ali and Beech Hill Lucia have been placed in many classes already this year and came out on top and won a car this week at the National Kuwait event. Ali remarked that “She is very careful and smart mare, and she is improving every show with me! I hope we continue achieving great results in the future.”

Lisbeg Farms are delighted to see the instant results from this new combination. Richard Bourns commented: “We hope this is just the beginning of Beech Hill Lucia’s reign on the UAE circuit with Ali, we wish them continued success.”
