(Edited Emirates Racing Authority press release)
Group winners Lord Admiral, Biarritz, Royal Vintage, and Vertigineux are scheduled to be offered during the Dubai International Racing Carnival (DIRC) session of the Emirates Racing Authority horses in training sale, sponsored by Al Basti Equiworld, at Nad Al Sheba in Dubai.
The auction, which will be conducted in association with the England-based auction firm Tattersalls, will offer 47 horses during the DIRC session March 3 and another 97 lots March 4.
“We are very pleased with the quality of horse entered for the Carnival session of the sale and there are numerous opportunities for people to buy horses in preparation for our move to Meydan in 2010,” said Frank Gabriel, chief executive officer of the Dubai Racing Club. “Everyone is welcome; there is no admission fee. This provides an ideal chance to become involved in the racing industry here in the UAE (United Arab Emirates).”
