QATAR RACING AND EQUESTRAIN CLUB (QREC)

/ SPONSOR OFFICIAL
5aabc93c43a89_5a1ebf7199d70_QREC.jpg

Qatar Racing and Equestrian Club (QREC) and France Galop, a marriage of two great equestrian cultures

Qatar is heavily invested in the world of horses, and with the Qatar Racing and Equestrian Club (QREC) the emirate hopes to demonstrate its attachment to this majestic animal. The QREC is in charge of organising Qatari promotions both at home and through strong partnerships all over the world.

Since 2008, the QREC has been linked with the Qatar au Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe and fourteen other Group races in France, making it an example for other sponsors to follow. Thanks to the support of this powerful partner, France Galop is able to organise the most richly-rewarded turf race in the world, which boasts five million euros in prize money.

Qatar, which sponsors the whole Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe Weekend, also lends significant support to the Arab racing industry in France. Since 2014, the purse for the Qatar Arabian World Cup − which is held on the same day as the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe – has swelled, reaching a million euros for the first time in its history.

Qatar also sponsors numerous other high-profile equestrian events, particularly in Great Britain (Glorious Meeting at Goodwood, Champions’ Day at Ascot), through Qatari shareholding company QIPCO.

At the beginning of the 21st century, members of Qatar’s ruling family (Al Thani) founded what is now one of the most powerful stables on the planet. With horses running under different family jerseys, this stable is extremely prominent both in breeding circles and in competition.

EPIQE SERIES

/ THE CHAMPIONSHIP
5a82fff822cdb_5a1c48d1c71f4_epiqe_series.jpg

The championship circuit is made up of the 14 top horse races in France!

These  prestigious flat and trotting races, run on France's most magnificent  racecourses, all lead to the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe for flat  racehorses and the Prix d’Amérique Opodo for trotters.

Lanfranco Dettori won the EPIQE Series championship in 2017!

The  world's greatest jockeys coupled with the very best mounts measure up  to one another in France's seven most prestigious flat races, with just  one objective in mind: clinching the title in the all-important final  stage, the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe! 

Race after race, the  participants use their talent and tactics to amass a maximum number of  points, which count towards the final rankings.  

After  his victory in the 96th edition of the Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe,  Italian jockey Lanfranco Dettori won the EPIQE series in 2017!

THE NEW APP THAT IS REVOLUTIONISING THE WORLD OF HORSE RACING  

Thanks to the geolocation of horses running in races, you can now follow  the runners’ position in real time to an unprecedented level of  accuracy (less than 25cm compared with the metre that is currently the  case in other sporting disciplines) whether you are watching from home  or on the racecourse.

The second-screen “EpiqE Tracking” app is your invitation to a brand new, immersive experience!

Live 3D immerses you in the thick of the action as you follow the race from the  horse of your choice. Benefit from unprecedented 360° viewing angles  throughout the race:

  • Access an abundance of real-time information during the race: position, speed, distance behind the leading horse, acceleration, deceleration, etc.
  • Immediate access to Replay 3D allows you to re-watch and analyse the whole race: the exact distance run, a better understanding of a horse’s performance and its jockey’s strategical decisions, etc.
  • You can even use a virtual reality (VR) headset for a 100% immersive experience: swap horses with a simple head movement!

The “EpiqE Tracking” app is available for free on iPhone and iPad from the iTunes store, as well as on Android devices from the  Google Play Store.
