Berlin-Hoppegarten welcomes first Arabian race of the season

 April 3, 2012, Berlin~ The first Arabian race of the 2012 season will be off  Sunday, April 8th, at race course Berlin-Hoppegarten, the first of others to come. Fresh off his win on Fred Texas at the Dubai Kahayala Classic, Adrie de Vries will be on Sartejano, looking to reprise his effort.

It is a most auspicious year for Arabian racing at this classic race track on the edge of Berlin, as the race course will welcome the Sheikh Mansoor Global Arabian Flat Racing Festival in June.

Mr. Gerhard Schöningh, race course owner, welcomes the Festival.

“We are very delighted to have the second “HH Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan Listed Cup” in Berlin this year on the 10th of June and the inaugural “HH Sheikha Fatima Bint Mubarak Ladies IFAHR Cup”. At the same time we have every confidence that we will experience a fantastic Conference from the 7th to the 9th of June in Berlin, and we are very much looking forward to that.”

The Hoppegarten race course, in Brandenburg on the doorstep of Berlin, was Germany’s most important horse racing centre until 1945, and today is still considered to be one of the most beautiful in Europe.
