Today sees the running of the Prix Baron Gasquet Wathba Stallions Cup at the Langon Racecourse in France. The race is part of the H.H. Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan Global Arabian Horse Flat Racing Festival, now in its 15th successful edition.

Implemented under the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Vice President, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Presidential Court, the festival aims to support horse owners and breeders across the world and encourage them to take care of Arabian horses.

This year’s festival is to feature many changes, including Group 1 races to be held in France, in addition to moving other races into Group 2 and 3 classifications. Meanwhile, Italy will host 14 races, and the “Liwa Cup” under Group 1 will be moved from England to France, where the race will be held 30th July for the second consecutive year.

France will host 34 races, including five races under Groups 1, 2 and 3, while the Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan Cup and the H.H. Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak Cup will be held in several countries, including Belgium and Morocco.

Once the international races end and the new UAE season begins, the action will move to our shores for the Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan Jewel Crown race held annually at the Abu Dhabi Equestrian Club.

Equitrans is proud to continue our support to the Arabian flat racing industry both in the UAE and overseas.
