17 July 2022, California, USA ~The Arabian Racing Association of California is proud to announce the Wathba Stallions Cup races for 2022 at Colorado.

The races have been so well inscribed that there will be two divisions of the first of the Wathba Stallions Cup race in the series. The first race will be on Sunday, 31 July, and the second will be held on Monday, 1 August. These two races are 5 furlongs and will have prize money of $10,000 each race.
