Ooredoo will renew its sponsorship of HH The Amir’s Silver Sword race at the upcoming HH The Amir’s Sword Festival, which is set to begin on Thursday at Al Rayyan Park.
HH The Amir’s Sword Festival is one of the most prominent international horse racing events in the region, featuring some of the best local and international horses.
The three day racing extravaganza will see a total of 27 races, with Al Zubara Trophy for local Purebred Arabians the feature on the first day.
Friday’s card consists of nine races with the Group 2 Irish Thoroughbred Marketing Cup, a mile-long race with a total prize money of USD200,000, the feature.
The third and final day of the festival will host some of the biggest races of the festival.
The sixth race of the card will be HH The Amir’s Silver Sword, which is presented by Ooredoo. The 1850m race for four-year-old Purebred Arabians carries a prize purse of USD250,000.
Speaking on the exciting event, Ooredoo COO Yousuf Abdulla al-Kubaisi said, “We are committed to supporting events and activities aimed at preserving the heritage and traditions of Qatar, in line with our corporate social responsibility strategy, and we are proud to sponsor this race to be held on the Silver Sword of His Highness The Amir. This prominent event highlights Qatar’s history and identity, and we look forward to enjoying some amazing horsemanship and some memorable races.”
Qatar Racing and Equestrian Club CEO Nasser bin Sherida al-Kaabi said, “We are proud to have Ooredoo as partners in sponsoring HH The Amir’s Sword Race which is considered one of the most important of all, as it is exclusive to Arabian horses. Qatar is known for its interest in this breed of horses, and the festival is global in nature with the participation of a wide range of well-known coaches and jockeys from around the world. The festival also contributes to the vision of the Racing and Equestrian Club to become a world-class equestrian centre. I am confident that this partnership with Ooredoo will create more opportunities for co-operation and joint action to serve Qatari equestrian.”
