Al Malaz Horse Race Track & Stadium

Hotels near Al Malaz Horse Race Track & Stadium, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia .

Thoroughbred and Arabian horse racing is held at the Al Malaz Horse Race Track and Stadium. The stadium hosts many scheduled race horses and has a capacity for a large audience.

Saudi Arabia is a country where many men are judged by their horsemanship, and some of the best horse riders in the world come from this country. The 2000 Olympic Games was represented by Khaled Al ‘Eid who rode for his country and won the championship.

The Arabian Arabs have taken much pride in their own particular breed of horse bearing their name. Arabian horses are now in many regulated races presided over by His Majesty King Faisal. Prizes for winning the races include the 1,500 Saudi-riyal Riyadh prize, the 1,200 meters with six entries, the 2000 riyals for the 1,500 twelve-entry, the SR 2,500, 2,400 meters seven-entry and the King’s cup which feature eleven horses, 2,600 meters a $4,500 cash prize, a gold plated cup presented to the winner in person by HM King Faisal.

Saudi Arabia’s administrative, financial, legislative and commercial center, Riyadh is a location where many foreign embassies, university banks and institutions hold corporate headquarters. Offering cash prizes is the Riyadh government’s way of promoting this distinctively Arabian sport.
