The Arabian allowance race concludes the series of Wathba Stud Farm sponsored races on the fairs for 2012. In it’s second year the Wathba Stud Farm Sponsored Racing Series has proven to be a great success and continues to revitalize the Arabian racing industry in California. The quality of racing has improved along with bottom level purses being raised from 4800 to 6300. Mae Davis, the Arabian Racing on site representative feels confident that increased purses will draw more Arabian stock to California from Texas and Colorado and believes 2013 will be an even better year for Arabian Racing.
