The Arabian Racing Organisation (ARO) is thrilled to announce that for 2022, The Arabian Racehorse magazine will be supporting UK Arabian racing by providing a travel concession for horses finishing outside of the prize money. The registered owner of the horses that finish in seventh and eight places will be credited with £25 into their ARO client account in selected races throughout the season, starting at Royal Windsor on May 16th.
Debbie Burt, proprietor and editor of The Arabian Racehorse commented: “The Arabian Racehorse has been supporting UK Arabian racing since the magazine’s inception in 2015, mostly through race sponsorship. With all available races in the current programme fully sponsored, after discussion with ARO, we decided the most effective way to help our participants was by offering a travel concession for those finishing outside of the prize money.
“Given the current rise in the cost of living and in particular the price of fuel, I hope that this contribution will be well received.”
Genny Haynes, ARO CEO commented: “ARO is extremely grateful for the continued support from Debbie and The Arabian Racehorse Magazine. The Wathba Stallions Cup Handicap at Royal Windsor and the Emirates Breeders Maiden Stakes at Wolverhampton will be the first two races to benefit, with others announced in the ARO racing calendar as the year progresses.
“With just 20 days before our season starts on May 16th, this is a timely and welcome addition to the benefits’ already announced, such as the Racing Welfare Best Turned Out awards and the UK Breeders Incentive Scheme.”
