The Equestrian City Come to Life Again in Raqqa.

With the participation of Raqqa Military Council and tribal Sheikhs and notables, the Youth and Sports Committee in Raqqa organized a race of thoroughbred Arab horses.
The race was held in five stages starting with 400/m, 600/m, 1000/m , 1600/m and 2000 meters. Thirty-five jockeys from Raqqa city and its countryside participated in the tournament.
At the end of the stages, jockey Raed Muhammad Ali won for 2,000 meters, and the prizes awarded to the top three of each round.
Ahmed al-Khader, an administrator with the Youth and Sports Committee, said that organizing such competitions after more than 10 years hiatus is aimed at reviving this sport especially after the wars in Raqqa, the most recent of which was the war against Daesh which destroyed sports facilities in the city.
