French Arabian Breeders’ Challenge
The four races that make up the French Arabian Breeders ' Challenge, a series created in 2004 by the AFAC, with the active participation of Jean-Luc Jardel, then President of the association, are the last PA groups of the French season.
The first edition took place on 29th June 2004 at Toulouse racecourse and during these thirteen years they moved to Longchamp, then Saint-Cloud for the races for three-years-old horses.
Finally, in 2011 they returned to their course of origin: Toulouse, with an allocation of 45 000€ per race, completely financed by the AFAC.
For the past few years, the four races have been awarded the status of Group 2PA and the three-year-old fillies competition is sponsored by the Festival of S.A. Sheikh Mansoor bin Zayed Al Nahyan.
