Benoit Jeffroy, Stud Manager of Al Shaqab in France, received the trophy following the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe race at Chantilly yesterday, Sunday, 1 October.
Khalifa bin Mohammed Al Attiya, Al Shaqab Executive Director, said “Winning the EPIQE Series challenge proves Al Shaqab’s excellence in France and ability to win prestigious races against strong competitors as clearly demonstrated by having a score of nearly the double of that of the nearest competitor, Flaxman Stables Ireland as well as winning three legs of the challenge: the Abu Dhabi Poule d’Essai des Poulains and the QIPCO Prix du Jockey Club thanks to Brametot, and the Prix du Haras de Fresnay-le-Buffard – Jacques Le Marois with Al Wukair. Wajnah, fourth in the Abu Dhabi Poule d’Essai des Pouliches, and Brametot, fifth in the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe, also added to their tally. We look forward to maintaining excellence and winning prestigious titles as Al Shaqab always targets excellence and presence at the winners’ enclosure.
