MARRAKECH: On the final day of the three-day World Arabian Horse Racing Conference, held from 4th to 6th May in Marrakech, Morocco, experts were highly optimistic that the future of Arabian Racing was bright and agreed that much credit for the revival of Arabian horse racing in recent years was mainly propelled by the efforts of the H.H. Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan Global Arabian Horse Flat Racing Festival.

During a panel entitled, "Future of Arabian Racing'', Lara Sawaya, Executive Director of the Festival, said, "The fact that 86 countries are represented among those in this gathering is proof of the current status that Purebred Arabian racing is enjoying."

Boutros Boutros, Emirates Airlines Vice President of Regional Communications, Marketing and Branding, said the festival's push has made Arabian horse racing one of the fastest-growing sports and urged the racing fraternity to benefit from the opportunities being provided by such an initiative.

Mubarak Al Nuaimi, Director of External Promotion of the Abu Dhabi Tourism and Culture Authority, TCA Abu Dhabi, added to the panel discussion, saying that such initiatives were all about placing Abu Dhabi and the UAE on the world map, highlighting the country's heritage and influence in Arabian horse racing.
