THE PROGRAM FOR THE DUBAI INTERNATIONAL ARABIAN RACES 2018

The list of the Dubai International Arabian Races for the 2018 season was unveiled on Wednesday the 4th April. The French stage will take place on the 3rd July at La Teste-de-Buch. This circuit of eighteen races, run under the patronage of His Royal Highness Sheikh Hamdan Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, aims to educate more people about the Arabian breed, the sport of Arabian horse racing, and the Arabic culture that underpins it.

Mirza Al Sayegh, the spokesperson for Dubai International Arabian Races, commented: "Last year, we were very pleased to see so many racegoers and families attending our flagship event at Newbury as well as so many owners and trainers from all of Europe and beyond. All the races were well supported and competitive (…) We are delighted to announce the renewal of the travel allowances for international runners competing in the races at Newbury on 29th July and the renewal of the DIAR bonus prize fund for 2018.  The bonus fund encourages international runners to the UK by offering a prize money bonus to horses placed in DIAR preparation races in Europe which then go on to win one of the bonus races at Newbury. Last year, a bonus of £ 3,000 was won by Lightening Bolt (Munjiz) after his victory in the feature race Shadwell Dubai International Stakes (Gr. I PA)."
