AL Talia Stable will be sponsoring today's South African Endurance Horse Race following the success of last year's race.
Sponsoring the 160-km race stresses the status that the stable and endurance racing in Bahrain have reached both domestically and internationally.
The leader of Al Talia stable Shaikh Faisal bin Rashid Al Khalifa said that this step was taken because of the strong ties with the race's organising committee, which was built through the numerous and multifaceted contacts that the stable has had with them which includes buying and selling of horses and exchange of visits.
Shaikh Faisal added that the main goal of the sponsorship is to gain media coverage for Bahrain and to put the Kingdom in general and endurance racing, in particular under the spotlight.
He also hoped that the internationally accredited race being held under the supervision of the International Association for Endurance Racing will be a success for those goals to be accomplished.
