DOHA, QATAR – For the first time, Sotheby’s, one
of the world’s leading international auction houses, is to participate at 19th
International Arabian Horse Show (February 21 through 23, 2010)

bringing to Qatar select highlights from a single–owner collection of
19th and 20th century jewels, together with watches that showcase the
exceptional capability of the world’s finest watchmakers, as well as a group of
senior specialists and executives.
“The Show has particular relevance
for us Sotheby’s as it was through a series of six pioneering Arabian horse
sales – staged under my aegis in the United States between 1989 and 1993 – that
we came to form many of the relationships we continue to enjoy with major
collectors and breeders of Arabian racehorses throughout the Middle East and
especially in Qatar.”
