The two races that will be held on Saturday, November 20, at Cidade Jardim Racecourse, are considered a Battle of Giants with the participation of champion animals, seven males in the National Arabian Horse Grand Prix and 12 mares in the Arabian Ladies Grand Prix.

The first race to be held will be the National Arabian Horse Grand Prix (Grande Prêmio Nacional do Cavalo Árabe) on 1,600 meters on turf for 3-year-old and older, a sensational battle between the seven participants.

Among the runners, Mahatma Rach (Sarmata x Magic All Rach by Ulysses Rach) is the grand champion and winner of the Wathba Stallions Cup for Colts on September 24, followed by Mentor Rach (Sarmata x Musa Rach by *Polonez), champion of the Grande Prêmio ABCCA Prix on September 4; and Mandato Rach (Erastus Rach x Magic All Rach by Ulisses Rach) is the only one who still has no victory..

Trainer Lucas Quintana said: “We will have four horses in the race and, in my opinion, the one with a chance of winning is Mentor Rach, who lost the last race to Mahatma Rach, but for this one he is my bet. Obstinado Rach (Atentaddo VE x Obsession Rach by Voltaire Rach) is also very well trained. Everyone did very well in the on turf training this week. Let’s see what happens on Saturday, because the weather has changed and the forecast is for rain.”

In the second race, 12 mares compete in the Grande Prêmio Arabian Ladies, with champions participating and what promises to be an exciting battle. With the exception of RG Kalifa (Cáceres CSM x Caldas CSM by Pavel Rach), who competes for the first time, all the others already have racing experience.

In the race, RG Kalifa competes with her full sister RG Kodak (Cáceres CSM x Caldas CSM by Pavel Rach) and Osiris Rach (Eksort Rach x Olympia Rach by *Aicyng AHRA), both winners of the Wathba Stallions Cup for Fillies on September 24 and May 1st respectively.

“In the female race we will also have four animals. Osiris Rach won the last race on turf and adapted very well. Holly Pol Rach ran less on the grass, but we expect an excellent performance. Like the males, they all had an excellent training this week. Now it’s time to wait for the race and win another victory”, commented trainer Lucas Quintana.

Almir José Ribeiro, director of racing at ABCCA said: “Next Saturday we will have 19 Arabian horses participating in two very important races on our calendar that are part of the celebration of the 40th anniversary of the National Arabian Horse Show: the Grande Prêmio Nacional do Cavalo Árabe and the Grande Prêmio Arabian Ladies. We will have on track the best animals of this season and 12 owners looking for another victory, which demonstrates a greater interest in Arabian horse racing at each new race. I would like to thank the board of the Brazilian Arabian Horse Breeders Association (ABCCA), which has spared no effort in promoting Arabian Sport horses in all its modalities. And may it be another Saturday of Success!”

Our thanks to our sponsors, breeders, owners and professionals for this show provided by Arabian Horse.

In addition to the prizes during the races, all horses participating in the 2021 Race Calendar also compete in the Arabian Cup 2021 Race category, promoted by ABCCA.

Grande Prêmio Nacional do Cavalo Árabe and Grande Prêmio Arabian Ladies are organized by Brazilian Arabian Horse Breeders Association (ABCCA) in partnership with the Jockey Club of São Paulo.
