RACE royalty doesn't get much more regal than Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
A major figure in international thoroughbred horse racing and breeding, the Sheikh hosts the Dubai Cup, the world's richest horse series.
What the Clarence Valley can't give in dollar terms, it pays in spirit and our precocious sports editor has tried to show that to the Sheikh with today's front page.
The power of social networking has allowed Daily Examiner's Patrick Allen to smash through his caste and invite Sheikh Mohammed to the July Racing Carnival through Twitter.
We plan to send him a copy of today's front page and ask him to grace us with his presence.
For the past two years Sheikh Mohammed has had winning horses in the the Ramornie Hcp and Clarence River Jockey Club CEO Bradley de Martino Rosaroll said he'd like to see his highness make it third time lucky.
"It's been quite amazing to see his horses win two years in a row," Mr de Martino Rosaroll said.
"They have pretty famous colours and it was great to see.
"We would love him to come along this year.
"Of course, we would look after him and make sure he had everything he needs."
