The Arabian Racing Organisation (ARO) was pleased with the 11 runners declared for the Royal Cavalry of Oman Premier Handicap to be run over 2 miles at Doncaster this Saturday, June 3. A long term supporter of Arabian racing in the UK, The Royal Cavalry of Oman have maintained their UK sponsorship for 2017, having increased their support last year.
This stamina test is just one of a range of single races supported by The Royal Cavalry run on thoroughbred cards, from the lower levels to the highest, of which the Doncaster race is the first this season. It also includes The Royal Cavalry of Oman Clarendon Stakes, a Group 3 run over 5 furlongs at Newbury on August 19.
ARO Racing Operations Executive Gemma Cobb commented: “With a mix of seasoned handicappers and unexposed young horses, it promises to be an interesting contest. ARO welcomes the continued support of The Royal Cavalry of Oman who have been part of Arabian racing in the UK for more than ten years.
“Their sponsorship got off to a successful start with six of eight races at our Taunton fixture last month. In addition, since returning to the UK training ranks, they have had winner and horses placed at each meeting, and we wish them continued success throughout the year.”

She concluded: “We look forward to running at Doncaster, where we always receive a warm welcome, and we also thank the racecourse teams at Taunton, Bath, Newbury and for their support of the Royal Cavalry’s single race sponsorship in 2017.”
