Issa bin Mohammed Al Mohannadi:
Qatari success in Arabian races and we look forward to Sunday
QREC Chairman His Excellency Issa bin Mohammed Al Mohannadi lauded the Qatari victories at Saint-Cloud on Friday 4 October, as part of the events associated with the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe weekend.
“I’m very pleased with victory made in presence of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Khalifa Al Thani, owner of Al Shahania Stud”, said Al Mohannadi after the races, “The win scored for Sheail bin Khalifa Al Kuwari is also a demonstration of Qatari owners’ commitment and ability to run their horses and win outside Qatar. It is an excellent start, giving a very positive indicator of the success of the Qatar-sponsored Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe.
“The victories of AMYR DU SOLEIL and LADY PRINCESS in the Qatar Arabian Trophies for colts and fillies reflect QREC’s commitment to Arabian racing and vision to promote as a world hub for horse racing and a leader in the pure Arabian breed. We look forward to Sunday and a Qatari victory in the Qatar Arabian World Cup, especially as Qatar has had a lion’s share of the coveted title in the previous editions. In addition, the presence of His Highness Sheikh Abdullah bin Khalifa Al Thani-owned and bred FRENCH KING in the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomhe reflects a bright image of Qatar’s horse racing and equestrian sport. It is brilliant to have a Qatari-owned and bred horse in the World’s Best Race Horse.
