Why The Dubai World Cup?
With a first prize of $10 million, the Dubai World Cup is the world’s richest horse race so you wouldn't be surprised to find Economic Model as a favourite in the Godolphin Mile this year.
There’s another $20 million to be shared between the winners of eight other races and this is your chance to be in amongst the action and, if you know your Arabian Thoroughbreds from your also-rans, you might have a day which pays for itself!
Taking place on the final weekend in March and based at the state-of-the-art Meydan Racecourse, Dubai World Cup Day is the biggest sporting and social event in The Gulf and in turn, attracts the biggest names in racing, la crème de la crème of Gulf, European and African society to watch man and beast in perfect harmony.
What makes the Dubai World Cup a world-beater?
While the gentlemen, Sheikhs, Princes and Bishops vie for the best tips, champagne-sipping ladies enthral the star-studded crowd their magnificent millinery and chic fashion. And what a place to watch them (the horses, not the ladies!) as Meydan Racecourse boasts an Arabian Crescent-shaped grandstand that measures a mile in length and accommodates 60,000 fans.
The perfect place to bring the racing season to a close under the starry midnight sky; some say it’s the finest horse-race in the world, so don’t look a gift-horse in the mouth, click the link for info and horse-pitality packages!
