Darley Awards Hollywood 2014

Carmel, California/ USA - September 26, 2013

"Darley Awards Hollywood 2014" as it's being called, took center stage at press conferences on both sides of the globe; first at the Abu Dhabi International Exhibition Center during the second day of the Abu Dhabi International Hunting and Equestrian Exhibition (ADIHEX) and then Beverly Wilshire, Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA.


The HH Sheikh Mansoor Bin Zayed Al Nahyan Global Arabian Flat Racing Festival Darley Awards, which come under the auspices of the Arabian Racing Cup, is clearly recognized as the highest achievement possible for racing Arabians in the U.S. This event, along with the HH Sheikha Fatima Bint Mubarak Darley Awards for Ladies, have been graciously hosted the last two years by the Texas Arabian Breeders' Association. Now the Awards is taking the next step in international prominence. At the press conference, Lara Sawaya, Executive Director of the HH Sheikh Mansoor Bin Zayed Al Nahyan Global Arabian Horse Flat Racing Festival and Head of International Federation of Arabian Horse Racing Authorities (IFAHR) Ladies Racing announced "Darley Awards Hollywood 2014".


“As a celebration of the third year of sponsorship of the HH Sheikh Mansoor bin Zayed Al Nahyan Global Arabian Horse Flat Racing Festival with the U.S. Arabian Racing Cup Darley Awards, the Oscars of Arabian racing will be held April 4-5, 2014, in Hollywood, California,” she said. It will partner once again with the HH Sheikha Fatima Bint Mubarak Darley Awards, which recognizes the outstanding international women of Arabian racing.



According to Sawaya, the Awards will be given glamorous treatment over two evenings. The Darley Awards will be presented on April 4 at the Dolby Theater (formerly the Kodak Theater) in Highland Center. The Celebration Banquet will be held the following evening at Universal Studios, and the host hotel will be the Beverly Wilshire, a Four Seasons Hotel.



Denise Gault, Chief Steward of the Arabian Racing Cup said, “We are honored to continue the partnership with the HH Sheikh Mansoor bin Zayed Al Nahyan Arabian Horse Flat Racing Festival for our third year together. Darley Awards Hollywood 2014 promises to be a world-class event."
