The fact that the Jockey Club of Saudi Arabia is paying all the costs for the competitors and their horses, has invested millions of dollars into the development of a turf track demonstrates that the Saudi Cup will be an illustrious race that will become a yearly feature.

There is no entry fee and no cost to run a horse in the race.
