The Royal Cavalry of Oman Extends Support to ARO for 2022

The Royal Cavalry of Oman will return to support UK Arabian racing with five races in 2022 The Arabian Racing Organisation (ARO) have confirmed. Long-term sponsors, their support will include three racecourses, Doncaster (16th July), Newbury (30th June, 7th July) and Royal Windsor (7th August). Their sponsorship highlight, the Royal Cavalry of Oman International Stakes, a Group 2PA, run over six furlongs, also held at Newbury on August 13th.

The Royal Cavalry has been a valued supporter of UK Arabian racing sponsoring a variety of races from grassroots to group level since 2008. They have a particularly strong connection to the black type sprint races through their previous sponsorship of the Clarendon Stakes over five furlongs, and their own success in the Za’abeel International over six furlongs, which they won four times in a six-year period. Taking over sponsorship of the Za’abeel in 2021, the race, now known as the Royal Cavalry of Oman International Stakes, is run on BetVictor Hungerford Stakes day, a card which also features two thoroughbred Group races.

Dr Sarhan Salim Hamed Al-Zeidi, Director General of The Royal Cavalry of Oman commented:

The Royal Cavalry of Oman is delighted to confirm their sponsorship with the Arabian Racing Organisation for 2021. The Royal Cavalry have had a long and successful working relationship with ARO for many seasons and we are proud to be supporting UK Arabian racing at all levels.”

Genny Haynes, ARO Chief Executive Officer said:

ARO is extremely grateful to the Royal Cavalry of Oman who have been loyal and generous supporters of UK Arabian racing for many years. They have shown continued commitment to our participants, supporting racing at every level from the grassroots to the international pattern. We look forward to welcoming them back to the UK in 2022.

We are also grateful for the assistance of the British Horseracing Authority, Doncaster, Newbury and Royal Windsor racecourses for supporting our racing this season.”
