18th August 2014

Categories: News

This Bank Holiday weekend Royal Windsor Racecourse is once again hosting The Royal Cavalry, The Sultanate of Oman, as they bring their pageantry and colour to a day dedicated to Arabian racing on Sunday, 24 August at the Berkshire course.

This will be the seventh of nine dedicated Arabian fixtures for the 2014 Arabian Racing Organisation (ARO) season where the Royal Cavalry, The Sultanate of Oman are important sponsors of the ARO racing calendar and the Windsor raceday is the feature event in their sponsorship portfolio.

Alongside thrilling races from top class Arabian horses, there will be a vast array of free gifts for families and young racegoers, amazing prize draws and the chance to meet Notid, the ARO Kids Club Arabian horse before racing begins. Courtesy of the Sultanate of Oman’s generous hospitality, racegoers will be able to experience the culture, tastes and scents of Oman by visiting the traditional Bedouin hospitality Tent.    

Amanda Smith, ARO Racing Manager said, “We are delighted to bring top class Arabian racing back to Royal Windsor after such a successful day here in 2013.  The Royal Cavalry of Oman is ARO’s Associate Sponsor and we are incredibly grateful for their on-going support of Arabian Racing in the UK.”

Stuart Dorn, Executive Director of Royal Windsor Racecourse said, “It was a pleasure to showcase this important Arabian fixture last year and we look forward to welcoming The Royal Cavalry of Oman back to the course for this exciting fixture as part of our summer season of racing.”

Tickets are just £8 if booked in advance, under 18’s go free.

The gates open at 12 noon and the first of eight races on the programme is scheduled to be run at 2:05pm. Racegoers arriving early can experience the unique hospitality of Oman and will have the chance to take expert advice on the day’s runners and riders from Arabian racing commentator Gary Capewell in the Winners’ Enclosure before racing.
