French Arabian Breeders' Challenge

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.

The quality of the breeding and the French races recognized in the world

 

 

 

France possesses the calendar of purebred arabians races the most prestigious to the world.

The quality of the French breeding rests on a begun selection 150 years ago, what allows our French breeders to export their production. This selection attracts numerous foreign investors who do not hesitate to establish their breeding on our ground by settling it their mares and their best stallions.
This success is the result of the work of the breeders and the French professionals of the world of the Arab horse, the trainers, the jockeys etc., which is also exported abroad
