Rasmi Al Khalidiyah wins UAE President’s Cup World Series for horses


Rasmi Al Khalidiyah, a five-year-old horse, won the UAE President’s Cup World Series for Purebred Arabian Horses held in Malmo, Sweden.

The horse was looked after by trainer Janusz Kozlowski and ridden by star jockey, Per-Anders Graberg.

Rasmi Al Khalidiyah managed to easily take the lead against nine other horses during the race, maintaining a distance of five lengths to win the race.

Faisal Al Rahmani, General Supervisor of the UAE President’s Cup World Series for Purebred Arabian Horses, and Saeed Al Muhairi, Representative of the Abu Dhabi Sports Council, crowned the champion and presented trophies to Kozlowski and Graberg.

The cup’s races are being held under the patronage of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, with the support of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, and under the directives of H.H. Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Presidential Affairs.

Al Rahmani noted that the support of H.H. Sheikh Mansour and his vision for the race series led to the overall popularity of purebred Arabian horse races.

He then extended his greetings to HRH Khalid bin Sultan bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, Owner of the Al Khalidiyah Stables, on the success of Rasmi Al Khalidiyah.
