Herbert Leaves Role at Al Shaqab (Qatar)

HARRY Herbert will be leaving is post as racing adviser to Sheikh Joaan Al Thani and Al Shaqab Racing from the end of April.

He commented: “I am incredibly proud of everything Al Shaqab Racing has achieved since I became racing adviser to Sheikh Joaan Al Thani in December, 2013.

"There have been some wonderful moments on the racecourse from their Royal Ascot treble in 2014, five winners at the Qatar Goodwood Festival in 2015, and the greatest highlight of all was providing Sheikh Joaan with his first classic winner when Galileo Gold won the Qipco 2000 Guineas in 2016.

"I have, however, decided with the exciting and continual growth of Highclere Thoroughbred Racing, particularly in Australia and with our National Hunt horses, that my attention needs to be focused on the future growth plans that I have for my own business.

"I would like to thank all of the Al Shaqab team for everything they have done and to Sheikh Joaan for giving me such a wonderful opportunity.”

Khalifa al Attiya, general manager of Al Shaqab Racing, commented: “I would like to thank Harry for everything he and his team have done for Al Shaqab Racing since he became racing adviser in December, 2013. We have enjoyed some great success over the years and I wish him the very best of luck for the future.”
