The Higher Organising Committee of the UAE President’s Cup World Series for Purebred Arabian horses has announced the calendar for the upcoming 31st edition of the international event.

The race series is being held with the support and guidance of His Highness Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Vice President, Deputy Prime Minister and Chairman of the Presidential Court, to enhance the stature of the Arabian horse, preserve its authentic heritage, and support plans for its care in all countries, in line with the vision and approach of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan.

The programme for the new edition in 2024 involves 15 races, nine of which are held in European tracks, five in Arab tracks, and one in the US.

The competitions will begin on Sunday at the Longchamp Racecourse in France as part of the UAE 2000 Guinées and Poule d’Essai des Pouliches, which is one of the most prestigious races in the world. 

The organising committee also recently announced the continuation of a series of races within the President’s Cup for Purebred Arabian horses in South America, which will include participation from countries such as Brazil, Uruguay, Argentina, and Chile.

This initiative aims to encourage and support horse owners and breeders in South American countries, with a focus on the responsible breeding, acquisition, and care of Arabian horses. By organising these races, the committee aims to increase breeding levels and help revive Purebred Arabians.

Matar Suhail Al Dhahiri, the committee chairman, expressed his gratitude and appreciation to the UAE’s leadership during the announcement of the year’s agenda.

The President’s Cup spans 15 countries across the globe, encompassing all renowned racetracks and involving dedicated owners and breeders of Arabian horses, he added.

“The remarkable progress witnessed by this outstanding event annually is a genuine realisation of the benevolent attention bestowed by our wise leadership. Their commitment to advancing the race series and attaining leading global ranks reflects the UAE’s unwavering dedication to supporting the extensive community of Purebred Arabian owners and breeders around the world,” Al Dhahiri said.
