Bahrain Turf Club Announce Prize-Money Increase


Lord Glitters | Bahrain Turf Club

The Bahrain Turf Club has announced an increase in purse money to the tune of 20% for the 2022 Bahrain International Trophy and the Bahrain Turf Series. That means that the total prize fund for the G3 Bahrain International Trophy will rise to £600,000 for 2022. Along with that, the 10 Bahrain Turf Series races will be run for £60,000 apiece.

First run in 2019 as a conditions race, the Bahrain International Trophy was upgraded to Group 3 status last year, with Lord Glitters (Fr) (Whipper) edging out Barney Roy (GB) (Excelebration {Ire}) in a tight finish to the 1 1/4-mile contest. 

Shaikh Salman bin Rashed Al Khalifa, Executive Director of The Bahrain Turf Club, thinks the increased prize-money on offer will further cement the fixture on the international calendar. 

He explained, “We are delighted to announce an increase in prize money for our feature race, the G3 Bahrain International Trophy. We are continually looking to develop horse racing in The Kingdom and by making this race more valuable, we believe that it is now firmly established on the international programme. We look forward to this year's renewal and hope that we will attract some of the best horses from around the world.”
