Qatar Horse Racing

Qatar's first race meeting of the year is to be held on the 18th of this month with "Club Cup Day". Racing takes place every Thursday during the racing season and entrance and a program is free. In addition to the racing, children can enjoy a bouncy castle and pony rides. Although no gambling is allowed, there are plenty of prizes to be won, and you can enjoy the spectacle from the club's restaurant, set high above the race track. For more details of the races this year, see this PDF file Proposal of the Race Programme.

Also watch out for the friendly football match between Iran and Qatar on 16th of this month!
