Saudi Arabia’s Prince Khalid bin Abdullah bin Abdulrahman Al Saud passed away on Tuesday, January 12.

A statement confirming his death was issued by the Royal Court and carried by state news agency SPA on Wednesday.

The 85-year old prince was a high-profile thoroughbred owner and breeder. The prince owned the successful Juddmonte Farms breeding operation, and ranked among the top owner-breeders in the world “able to count legendary horses such as Frankel, Enable and Dancing Brave among his long list of successes,” stated a report carried by Arab News.

Douglas Erskine Crum, CEO of Juddmonte, said in a statement on its website: “The whole of Juddmonte feels a huge sense of loss. Prince Khalid will always be remembered as a quiet, dignified, benevolent family man, whose horses spoke for him.

“He leaves a legacy that will stand the test of time. His contribution to the development of the thoroughbred will have long-lasting effects.”

Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, too took to Twitter to condole the death of the prince.

“My condolences to the Al Saud family and horse owners around the world for the passing of Prince Khalid bin Abdullah bin Abdulrahman Al Saud.

“Prince Khalid was a friend and a life companion in the passion for horses; the knight who left after capturing our hearts with his kindness.”
