Jose Carlos Vaz Guimaraes against UAE money
Some people don’t like Fair Endurance for our flamboyant style, although the main goal of our articles is to reveal the facts that other people prefer to ignore.
We are open to discussion, and we don’t censor comments that people leave below our posts.
But if some comment attracts our attention, we try to verify the facts.
This is not a personal attack, but simply the publication of facts that can be easily verified.
For example, Mr. Jose Carlos Vaz Guimaraes from Brazil left a comment below one of our recent articles:
We respect each person’s personal opinion but let’s check the facts.
Jose Carlos Vaz Guimaraes is a well-known Brazilian trainer and owner of endurance team Haras Bluegrass.
His comment contains the words: “bad page about endurance… sponsored with UAE money… working against Endurance sport”.
So, in his opinion, sponsored with UAE money means being bad.
As a professional Endurance trainer, Mr. Jose Carlos Vaz Guimaraes must surely know that most part of Endurance sport is sponsored with UAE money, including almost all championships, particularly, the 2017 World Championship for Young Riders and Juniors in Verona which he personally visited and in which his team participated.
His comment gives the impression that Mr. Jose Carlos Vaz Guimaraes is against UAE money and was never associated with UAE money.
Let’s check the facts.
On the FEI website, we can find out from the profile of Mr. Jose Carlos Vaz Guimaraes that he is a registered trainer of many horses.

Looking further into the list of horses he is training, we can find two horses associated with UAE money.
First horse is THAYNA HEC (FEI ID 105IC49): https://data.fei.org/Horse/Detail.aspx?p=FF2A4B857AC176608C761256596068CA
Mr. Jose Carlos Vaz Guimaraes was the registered trainer of this gray mare from 31/03/2017 till 31/08/2017. Then, from 01/09/2017 this horse was transferred to the trainer from UAE and later was sold to Jumeirah Stables.
Second horse is LAMIA CRH (FEI ID 104RL03): https://data.fei.org/Horse/Detail.aspx?p=A3D59791F3BF664AE91B5810B00D702D
Mr. Jose Carlos Vaz Guimaraes was the registered trainer of this bay mare from 29/07/2016 till 31/12/2017.
During this period, the horse has participated at the prestigious Sheikh Mohammed Al Maktoum Endurance Cup in Dubai on 07/01/2017 and then was sold to MRM Stables on 12/03/2017.
Thus, we can confidently say that Mr. Jose Carlos Vaz Guimaraes has something to do with UAE money.
Wonder why he began to write a comment in a negative way against the UAE money?
