Qatar - Manateq to sponsor HH The Amir Shalfa, Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere


(MENAFN- The Peninsula) The Peninsula

Doha: In confirmation of the value and significance of the long-standing cooperation between the Qatar Racing and Equestrian Club (QREC) and the Economic Zones Company (Manateq), their exemplary partnership has been extended for three years until 2024. 

This renewed collaboration is meant to achieve the common goals between the two parties in a way which enhances the progress and development of Qatari horse racing, as well as the role of Manateq, as a national partner who supports various activities, including sports.

Under the recently signed agreement, Manateq will sponsor two races in two different horse racing events, in Qatar and in France respectively. The first race is the HH The Amir Shalfa on the final day of the HH The Amir Sword Festival at Al Rayyan Racecourse in Doha. The second is the Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere on the final day of the annual QREC-sponsored Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe weekend at ParisLongchamp.

Commenting on this agreement, QREC Chairman Issa bin Mohammed Al Mohannadi said:“We are pleased to continue the partnership with Manateq, which has had a close relationship with QREC for several years. This relationship is based on realising a set of mutual goals which are in the interest of both QREC and Manateq, especially as the recently signed agreement includes sponsoring more than one race in important events and in two of QREC's most prominent races every year.” 

Al Mohannadi added:“It is our pleasure to renew this partnership with Manateq, particularly as our previous experiences with them have been very successful both in Qatar and overseas. They have contributed to the success of these events, which, in turn, emphasise the value and importance of the Qatari horse racing, both in Doha and abroad. I would like to thank the management of Manateq for their constant keenness to participate in sponsoring the activities of QREC. No doubt, continuing the partnership for three years, and in this manner, will bring about many gains, reflecting the excellent cooperation between the two parties.”

“We value Manateq's role and interest in continuing the collaboration with QREC in favour of the success of racing. We, in turn, are preparing in the coming days to produce a special renewal of the His Highness The Amir Sword Festival and the cooperation with the sponsoring companies, including Manateq, will be a major factor in realising this end. We look forward to producing a world-class edition of the prestigious Festival,” Al Mohannadi said.

Manateq CEO Fahad Rashid Al Kaabi said:“We are very pleased with this partnership with QREC. It signifies the strong relationship between the two organisations and makes us more keen to continue our cooperation.

The new three-year agreement aims for more successes, whether at the His Highness The Amir Sword Festival by sponsoring the His Highness The Amir Shalfa race, or sponsoring the Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere at ParisLongchamp.

In fact, Qatar's success in the major races and events is a success for all of us. Driven by our pride in these accomplishments and sense of national responsibility, we always take the initiative to contribute to such success. All national companies, including Manateq, seek to put all their capabilities to confirm to the world that Qatar is capable of organising and producing the biggest events to perfection.”

“Our sponsorship of QREC's activities is driven by our national duty to support sports and QREC's achievements and excellent association with racing events locally and abroad. We confirm once again that we will continue sponsoring QREC's races and supporting sport in general. Qatar's horse racing currently enjoys an outstanding stature on the global stage and we've seen that clearly in our previous experiences and association with QREC both inside and outside Qatar. We wish this sport more progress and advancement and look forward to promoting Qatar, especially in terms of horse racing by working together with QREC and with the unlimited support from our wise leadership,” Al Kaabi added.
