[RC] Presidents Cup - Shk Hamdam first to finish - Steph Teeter

First three across the finish line:
1. HH Sh Hamdan bin Mohamed Al Maktoum on Kaysand Farrazah : 6:52:29
2. Mohamed Ahmad Ali Al Subose on Kevin de Narthoux : 6:52:30
3. Mohamed Rashed Saeed Khamis Al Subosi on Genio II: 6:57:24

The last of the US riders just pulled. Kathy and Theatric vetted out at gate 3. Theatric was dehydrated, didn't pulse down. Steve and Sevilla (Savvy) pulled at gate 4 on the recheck for metabolic. I didn't get a chance go talk to him but at the first check everything was fine and he ate during the hold, so I'm not sure what happened. John and Sonny just pulled at gate 5 for lameness, Sonny was muscle fatigued. John said there was more sand than they were prepared for.

Tuanku Mizan is still in!! He came in to vetgate 4 in 30th place - average speed around 17km/hr (a little over 10m/hr). Halim pulled at gate 3.

I just talked to Justin (crewing for Steve) he said Savvy met criteria but was dehydrated and the vets thought it best to stop.

I'll try to get an update on the other foreign riders - I think France is still in, and Portugal... but I'm not positive.

Last time I counted there were 57 eliminations (88 starters). Hot today with a good breeze - very dehydrating day.
