UAE supports horse racing at more than 80 tracks around the world
His Excellency Faisal Al Rahmani, President of the International Federation of Arabian Horse Racing (IFHAR), said that the pioneering role and continuous support of His Highness Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Presidential Court, consolidates the sustainability of the UAE's global leadership in promoting the march of the Arabian horse.
Al Rahmani said: "Thanks to this support, there is a significant increase in the number of races around the world, and His Highness Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan is the "renewer" of the Arabian horse, with his unlimited and unprecedented support in sponsoring more than 80 tracks around the world, and the renewal of the "awakening" of the Arabian horse, which strengthens the role of the UAE, which is the basis for supporting international races.
In remarks to the Emirates News Agency (WAM), Al Rahmani pointed out that the UAE adopts the best practices to preserve Arabian horses, which represent the authentic historical heritage, as an extension of the vision and approach of the founding leader, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan.
He explained that the twelfth Al Ain race for purebred Arabian horses scheduled for next Saturday will witness the "marathon", which is the longest run in the Arabian fast horse races for a distance of 5100 meters, and will attract the attention of followers and horse lovers, due to the great excitement expected from the riders participating in this distance.
