A new trophy will be presented to the winner of this year’s Al Shira’aa Derby, alongside the iconic Boomerang Trophy.
To mark Al Shira’aa’s Hickstead Derby sponsorship, a stunning new trophy has been designed that the rider will get to take home and keep, providing a lasting memento of their Derby win.
“We thought it would be great for the rider to be able to keep a memory of their very well deserved win and therefore decided to create a new trophy which not only fulfils this need but celebrates the involvement of Al Shira’aa with this iconic event,” says Thomas O’Brien, UK Supervisor for Al Shira’aa.
Drawn in Arabic calligraphy and made in gold gilt, the new Al Shira’aa trophy takes the form of a wind sail and horse’s head. It has been specially made in the United Arab Emirates and reflects the history and passion of the Al Shira’aa brand.
The Al Shira’aa Derby takes place on Sunday 25 June, forming the grand finale to the Al Shira’aa Hickstead Derby Meeting (22-25 June).
