CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL THE SAUDI CUP WINNERS!

Racing is the winner as the first Saudi Cup meeting heralds a new era for international horseracing.

It may have been the inaugural running of the $20 million Saudi Cup, but it will go down immediately as an epic event and the highlight of an historic two-days of world class horseracing that caught the gaze of fans around the globe.

We offer our congratulations to all the winners on both days of the meeting and we look forward to welcoming you all back to Riyadh in 2021.

Thank you!

WELCOME FROM HRH PRINCE BANDAR

The horse is central to Arabian culture and Saudi history, and has played a special part in my life too.

My great-grandfather – King Abdulaziz, the founder of Saudi Arabia – was the last military leader in the world to win his battles from the saddle, and my grandfather, who was in his twenties, rode alongside him. Then my father was a jockey, can you believe, from the age of nine until his late-teens!

We’re putting on the SAUDI CUP in the hope that people who love horses and racing around the world might come and take a closer look at our culture and our country: explore a place they’d never thought of visiting and perhaps see it anew.

Over the years, we will be delighted if the SAUDI CUP can attract some of the finest horses and become one of the more sought-after races to participate in and watch.

I very much look forward to welcoming you to Riyadh.

HRH Prince Bandar bin Khalid Al Faisal
Chairman, Jockey Club Of Saudi Arabia
