The four-year-old filly’s 2000m win at the Paris Longchamp racecourse was witnessed by Sheikh Joaan bin Hamad Al Thani, President of the Qatar Olympic Committee, other dignitaries, horse owners and trainers.

Qatar landed two more wins at the Prix with Al Shaqab’s Alawsj in the Qatar Arabian Trophy des Pouliches and Sheail bin Khalifa Al Kuwari’s Hadi De Carrere in the Qatar Arabian Trophy des Poulains at St. Cloud. 

Lady Princess was the winner of the Group 1 Purebred Arabian race on the first day, the Qatar Arabian Trophy des Juments (Group 1 PA), for owner Sheail bin Khalifa Al Kuwari. 

The victories are part of Qatar Racing and Equestrian Club’s (QREC) larger vision of promoting Purebred Arabian racing worldwide and fostering the Gulf states’ pioneering image in the discipline.
