Horse sport in the Kingdom is on the right track thanks to the direct attention and follow-up by HM the King, who is the main supporter of sports in general and horse sport in particular in the Kingdom of Bahrain,” HH Shaikh Nasser said after Semoum’s victory.

“The victory achieved by Semoum is in line with HM the King’s sponsorship of horse sport in the Kingdom. We have been keen from the beginning to create all the positive atmosphere for the horse and the administrative staff and technical supervisor as well as his jockey to honour Bahrain in Ripon Racecourse Which is considered one of the most famous and strongest races.

“We were aware of the great importance of this race because winning it will have a positive impact on the sports in Bahrain and it will confirm the Kingdom’s pioneer position in the globe in this area,HH Shaikh Nasser added.
