Skalli explained, that there were eight races including King Mohammed VI’s Grand Prize of English thoroughbreds, and six races for Arabian thoroughbreds.

Expressing his satisfaction with the event, Skalli said, β€œSo far, seven races have taken place today. We are overjoyed, first and foremost for the safety of the players and jockeys, which is critical, but also for a beautiful organization, the presence of the public, and beautiful winning horses.”

SOREC’s managing director highlighted that the international meeting took place after a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic, stressing that this year’s event brought together foreign participants, horses, jockeys, and the general public.The Morocco International Meeting (MIM) is a celebration of equestrian sports and is held annually in November by the country's national equestrian organization.

MIM brings together national and foreign horses and their riders in an effort to enhance the significance of the annual meeting and support the global growth of the Moroccan racing industry.
