Excitement fills the air as the Longchamp Racecourse in France readies itself for an unprecedented milestone in its history. Tomorrow, it will host the highly anticipated first international leg of the 30th edition of the UAE President’s Cup World Series for Purebred Arabian Horses, in an extraordinary collaboration with the esteemed French Guinness.
This illustrious Cup series holds immense significance as it receives the distinguished patronage and unwavering support of His Highness Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Vice President, Deputy Prime Minister, and Minister of the Presidential Court. At its core, the event aims to celebrate, honor, and elevate the Arabian horse to greater heights, while propelling its global prominence. It also serves as a catalyst to provide extensive backing to owners and breeders on an international scale, fostering the growth and development of Arabian horse production – a mission that aligns harmoniously with the visionary legacy of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan.
The inaugural leg of this remarkable event is set to witness a riveting showdown among ten elite horses, hailing from esteemed Arab and European stables based in France. These magnificent creatures, paragons of grace and strength, will compete fiercely for victory in the highly anticipated UAE President’s 2000-meter Group 1 Cup – an exclusive race open only to fillies and mares aged four years and above. With the glory of triumph and a breathtaking cash prize of €100,000 at stake, the ten-round race promises to captivate spectators with its exceptional displays of athleticism, elegance, and raw equine talent.
