Horse Racing in Dubai

Dubai has hosted horse racing since 1981, when a dusty camel track saw in the region’s first ever Thoroughbred racemeeting. Now, the racing season has developed into one of the city’s annual highlights attracting visitors from all over the world, with world-renowned events including the Dubai World Cup Carnival, and their signature event, the Dubai World Cup on 25 March, taking place at the iconic Meydan Racecourse with the impressive backdrop of the famous Dubai skyline. The Dubai World Cup is an absolute must for horse lovers, racing fanatics or indeed anyone keen to be in the heart of the action at one of the city’s most tremendous occasions. The premier event pays tribute to the Arabian love affair with horses and is one of the UAE’s biggest social and sporting events, when USD30 million worth of prizes is handed out to the winners of the day’s nine races. Known for its ecstatic atmosphere, opulence and extreme hospitality, guests are treated with exceptional dining and extravagant entertainment – an experience to remember.
