Emir of Qatar names new horse Erdogan

Must read

Emir of Qatar Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, who is known to have close relations with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, has named a new horse he purchased “Erdogan.”

Al Thani bought the horse he named after President Erdoğan at a 2015 Tattersalls horse auction for around TL 4 million.

Erdogan is the offspring of the super horse Frankel, a British Thoroughbred racehorse, which has been unbeaten in his 14-race career and has been the highest-rated racehorse in the world from May 2011.

Three-year-old Erdogan is expected to begin races this year.
