Increase in fixtures for Arabian Racing Season

The 2013 Arabian Racing season, which will see the number of dedicated fixtures rise by 20%
to 12 and a further ten single races run on thoroughbred cards, opens on Sunday, 5 May.
The five]month programme which benefits from considerable commercial support from the
UK and the United Arab Emirates sees an increase in the number of races run under the
banner of His Highness Sheikh Mansoor Bin Zayed Al Nayhanfs Global Arabian Horse Flat
Racing Festival.
Five fixtures will be held at Hereford Racecourse under an agreement with Arena Racing
Company (ARC). The first four fixtures will take place on the first Sunday of the month from
May through until August with the fifth fixture being the Arabian Racing Season Finale taking
place on Saturday, 28 September with races supported by H.H. Sheikh Mansoor.
The flagship fixture of the Arabian Racing season, The Dubai International Arabian Race Day
at Newbury, staged for the past 30 years under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh
Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum, moves from its traditional Sunday slot to Thursday, 15
August and precedes two days of thoroughbred racing at the Berkshire course.
Backing for two important race series has been renewed by the Royal Cavalry of Oman and
Qatar Racing and Equestrian Club who have also recently announced their support for an
Innovative Breedersf Incentive Scheme.
Amanda Smith, Arabian Racing Organisation Racing Manager said: gWe are looking forward
to an exciting season ahead which we are confident will appeal to our owners and
supporters. The regular Hereford fixtures from May to August lend themselves to a
dedicated marketing campaign through which we hope to be able to introduce new people to
our sport and increase our following.
gWe are enormously grateful to our commercial supporters and to our owners and trainers
for their loyalty and helping us to continue to raise the profile of Arabian Racing and
strengthen its position in the sports and leisure market.h
Jim Allen, ARC Racing Director said, gWe are delighted to have been able to find a way for
the facilities at Hereford to be used while we continue to develop our longer term strategy
for the venue.h
