Cover Story Al Shaqab — A Year to Remember
by Betty Finke
The ending of a year, which is also the beginning of a new one, is for many a time of reflection and resolutions. We think back on all the things that are now past, review the highs as well as the lows, and we consider how to continue. What worked, and what didn’t? What can we do better next year? Will we be able to achieve the goals we set for ourselves?
As far as Al Shaqab is concerned, there were definitely more highs than lows in 2017, not to mention achieved goals.
It was, in fact, a very good year for Al Shaqab — a year marked by outstanding achievements for the Al Shaqab stallions and their offspring; a year of emotion, of smiles, tears, goosebumps, and magic.
