Evie Tubbs Sweeney and Pamela Burton Host HARC Racing Forum

On Friday, 15 April 2016, at the Arabian Breeders World Cup, an estimated 40 show attendees enjoyed the hospitality of the HARC Forum on Arabian racing. This hour-long presentation offered information that might be a game changer for many Arabian breeders. Breeders Cup attendees to the Forum came from as far away as Australia, including several owners of Arabians already racing there.

The Arabian Breeders Cup in Las Vegas was an ideal venue to showcase Arabian racing as an alternative discipline for many top-bred Arabian horses. Arabians with the correct physique and stamina work well in sport disciplines, and racing has an excellent paycheck waiting for talented individuals. In fact, in many countries such as Russia, France and Poland, horses have been traditionally started on the race track and directed to other disciplines if they showed no racing inclination.

AJC Director of Marketing Evie Tubbs Sweeney, and Horsereporter’s Pamela Burton co-hosted a multi-tiered presentation featuring a side presentation showing the benefits of racing Arabians including racing statistics and videos followed by a lively sharing session. The question that came up most often was, “How do we begin?”

Drawings for VIP invitation to the 2017 Darley Awards and a breeding to Monarch AH son, Favoritt, were part of the excitement for the evening.

The Heritage Arabian Racing Club, HARC, sponsored by HH Sheikh Sultan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, is promoting international races for horses that carry many of the top US racing legends including Monarch AH.

The next HARC racing forum will be at the Private Breeders of Santa Ynez on Friday, 15 May. Make plans to attend.

The Heritage Arabian Racing Club (HARC) was formed to preserve and protect the heritage Arabian racing lines, thereby diversifying the Arabian racing gene pool. Twelve member countries have been accepted into the HARC program. HARC races in the USA will begin in 2016. Visit: http://www.harchorses.com
