Racing TV has secured exclusive British broadcasting rights to the richest horse racing event in the world, the $20 million Saudi Cup in Riyadh. The race, which is set to kick off tomorrow, will be exclusively broadcast in the UK by Racing TV.

The race will include a run over 1,800 meters and is set to take place at the King Abdulaziz Racecourse.  The race will feature many of the best thoroughbreds from all over the world, promising to be a spectacular and memorable horse racing event.

Participants will include the gray colt-bred White Abarrio, winner of the Breeders’ Cup Classic 2023, as well as the Breeders’ Cup Classic runner-up, Derma Sotogake. As the two horses and their jockeys prepare to face off again, fans should also look out for Ushba Tesoro, a thoroughbred horse that won the Dubai World Cup 2023.

Racing TV also shared that Rick Dutrow, who returned to the racing sector after a 10-year suspension for medication and administration violations, is optimistic about White Abarrio’s performance.

“I feel if he is on his game and runs his race, he is going to be tough to beat,” Dutrow told Racing TV.

The Saudi Cup will sport a total prize pool of a whopping $37.35 million. In addition to the main race, there will be two additional Group 2 races, as well as three Group 3 races. Racing fans can also look forward to two Group 1 contests reserved for purebred Arabians.

Racing TV is set to broadcast the Jockey Club of Saudi Arabia’s official World Feed program, which will be presented by Racing TV’s Tom Stanley and Nick Luck.

British fans who wish to see the spectacular race will be able to do so on Racing TV, allowing them to immerse themselves in the action.
