Under HH patronage and the Vice President of the UAE, Deputy Prime Minister, Chairman of the Presidential Court and Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Emirates Arabian Horse Association, the second edition of the Emirates World Cup for Arabian Horses kicked off this month in the Kingdom of Bahrain through the Bahrain Championship for Local Production.

The Bahrain Championship featured 151 competing horses that delivered strong and exciting performances during the qualifying rounds; it began with the one-year-old fillies run of Section “A”, where she won first place “Galaxy NS” for Al Naseem Stud, with a score of 90.05 points.

He also thanked Sheikh Zayed bin Hamad Al Nahyan, Vice President of the Association, for his diligent contributions to the promotion of the sport and his keenness to encourage breeders and owners to acquire Arabian horses, preserve their breeds and enhance their status.

The Kingdom of Bahrain is the first country in the Middle East to host the Emirates World Cup for Arabian Horses, which includes 10 rounds held in countries from the Middle East, Europe, Africa, Australia, South America and North America in coordination with the competent authorities in those countries, with substantial financial prizes allocated to the winners of the first places in each round.
