Al Basti Equiworld Dubai has extended its support for Salisbury Racecourse by putting its name to the City Bowl, which is to be run on Thursday, May 16 for £24,000.

The same meeting features the Al Basti Equiworld Dubai Apprentice Handicap, the first  in a five-race series, and two further contests for three-year-old novices on the seven-race programme will carry the sponsor’s branding on what will be known as Al Basti Equiworld Dubai City Bowl Stakes Day.

The company’s founder Malih Al Basti said, “We were pleased to support Salisbury in their efforts to promote opportunities for young riders, and we have been delighted with the success of the Al Basti Equiworld Dubai Racing Excellence Apprentice Series.  When the opportunity arose to extend our partnership we did not hesitate.”

Prizes of £1,500, £1,000 and £500 will be awarded to the three riders amassing the most points in the series, which was won last year by 21-year-old Olivia Tubb, who is apprenticed to Jonathan Portman.

On the same day, Al Basti Equiworld Dubai will also be sponsoring the G2 Dante S. at York.
