(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) Uae qatar and usa have established decent records: al boueinen

the lack of database for the arabian horses was the focus of the discussions on the opening day of the world arabian horse racing conference london 2014. a panel of eight officials owners and trainers has addressed the topic of arabian racing and training in the second session which was moderated by the retired irish jockey and racing director of the abu dhabi equestrian club pat buckley.

“the problem lies with the racing governing bodies in the member countries” said sami al boueinen chairman of the paris-based international federation of arabian horse racing (ifahr). “we do not receive timely feedback from most of the european countries on the results of the races and the horses which took part in any particular event” he added. “countries like uae qatar and usa have already established decent records but this is not the case elsewhere” he added.

however the top arabian horse racing official declined to unveil the true factor behind the whole affair which is the lack of funds. the federation has no staff or even permanent premises where they can keep such records. they meet together at longchamp during the arc where qatar stages the arabian world cup. but al boueinen promised to sort the problem out in the wahrc workshop on the final day of the conference in order to reach to a quick and reasonable solution since without that data-base the development and promotion of arabian horse racing is impossible.

meanwhile faysal al rahmani a uae horse breeder owner and auctioneer said he’s optimistic about te future of the arabian horse racing at least in the gulf region thanks to the friendly atmosphere.

“the number of races in the uae is on the rise particularly in abu dhabi and al ain racecourses. arabian races in jebel ali and meydan are not that big but there’s still chance to have a better share as well as increasing the numbers of al ain’s race-meetings during the season. we have now removed the (all-weather) surface and will be racing on dirt. shaikh hazza bin zayed al nahyan national security advisor; shaikh tahnoon bin zayed al nahyan and shaikh mansour bin zayed al nahyan deputy prime minister and minister of presidential affairs have ordered the construction of 120 stables which will be available for small owners and breeders at very reasonable prices. the other positive indication is the steady rise in the numbers of buyers as well as the numbers of horses which go under the humor. more importantly things take the shape of an international auction during the dubai international arabian horse fair and championships with increasing buyers coming from other parts of the world” he said.

in the meantime speakers on the panel included jean pierre totain martial boisseuil yasir mabrouk karin van den bos ernest ortell mohammed al hashemi and susanna santesson.

generally speaking they have all agreed that the future of arabian horse racing is promising and things could be bettered should the governing body manage to keep reliable records and information worldwide.

south african trainer ernest ortell reiterated that there’s no difference between training arabian or tb horses because at the end of the day it’s an individual matter and mainly depends on the personal qualities of the horse in training.
