Sponsorship of HARC

Unmissable Global Sponsorship Opportunities

Help us Preserve the Arabian Heritage

The story of the Arabian horse is thousands of years old, filled with poetry, art, and romantic legends. It is a tale that embraces grand historical figures, from prophets to pashas, to kings, queens, and presidents, reaching across diverse civilizations on five continents. From the days of gallant desert warriors to the age of information, the superior qualities of the Arabian have ensured that it has been carefully preserved as the world’s oldest equine breed.

What is Heritage Arabian Racing Club?

Today's global Arabian racing industry has attained new heights of popularity and success, but it involves a very small section of the Arabian horse population. HARC represents a significant opportunity not only to help grow Arabian racing as a whole by attracting new enthusiasts passionate about the classic Arabian horse, but also to encourage breeders to preserve the widest possible gene pool for future generations.

Founded by His Highness Sheikh Sultan bin Zayed Al Nahyan in February 2015, the primary purpose of Heritage Arabian Racing Club (HARC) is to:

Support and promote racing of purebred Arabians of Heritage bloodlines

Ensure the long-term future of the classic characteristics of the Arabian horse
• Beauty
• Athleticism
• Soundness
• Versatility
• Speed.
