Deborah Mihaloff and husband, Alan Kirchener joined fans at the Longchamp race track in Paris for Qatar’s Arabian World Cup Racing Day. (4 years + Prize money: €500,000 E 2000m)
“This was the best weather we have ever enjoyed in Paris. It lasted the entire week.”
“The Arqana auction would be successful in that the high selling horse lot 41b Al Nachmiya was purchased at the sale on Thursday and would win the Fillies race (Qatar Arabian Trophy Des Pouliches) the next day. Purchase price was 350,000 Euros. Purse was 100,000 Euros.” (Ed note: Horsereporter covered the sale with this post: http://wp.me/p14mQ2-rj)
“As always the Qatar Arabian World Cup was beautifully promoted by France Gallop at Longchamp. The pageantry and hospitality that is given to the fans and the Race horses is unprecedented.” There were four Jumbo Trons in the infield of the track along with two large screens in the saddling paddock so that all could see the unbelievable coverage that is given with each race.”
The race would be dominated by Amer get for the first , second and third places, all trained by Julian Smart; an unprecedented accomplishment by a trainer or a sire.”
