“Once again, we are very much looking forward to the start of the 2016/2017 racing season with training and preparations well under way. This summer, we visited the Ocala Breeze Up Sales in Florida where we bought 7 two year olds for our clients who are now in training at Zabeel, and 3 two year olds at the Goresbridge Breeze Ups in Ireland who are currently being trained in England for our clients and will soon move to Zabeel. We also bought one horse at the horses in training sale at Tattersalls in Newmarket who is already in training with us. By the end of this month, we have a rather exciting Purebred Arabian arriving from the USA for Mr Ali Haddad, UPTOWN DANNYS BOY who is one of the top sprinters over there and already has Group wins under his belt!
This week, we look forward to attending the Godolphin horse sale in Dubai where we hope to acquire more bloodstock for new and existing clients. It is a great opportunity for UAE owners to buy some well bred horses locally saving them the cost of importing from other countries. This is just another example of how Meydan and Dubai Racing Club are improving the quality of the racing as they have also raised the prize money again for the third time in five years, as well as implementing some new incentives to attract more international and domestic clients.
We would like to thank our existing and new clients for all their continued support. We would specifically like to thank HH SH Mohd Bin Khalifa Al Maktoum for giving us the opportunity to train some of his well-bred Australian horses. We would like to wish all our clients and team the best of luck for the coming season.”
