Race in Qatar to be called Oryx Cup. What's an Oryx?


Glad you asked! The Oryx is an animal native to Qatar.

According to Wikipedia:

Oryx is one of three or four large antelope species of the genus Oryx, typically having long straight almost upright or swept back horns. Two or three of the species are native to Africa, with a fourth native to the Arabian Peninsula. Small populations of several oryx species, such as the "Scimitar Oryx", exist in Texas and New Mexico, USA as captive populations on wild game ranches
