Dubai World Cup is the biggest sporting and social event. It is also considered to be one of the world’s richest day of horse racing – worth US$35m in prize money. Traditionally, Dubai World Cup is held on the last Saturday in March and features nine races, an opening ceremony, and a live concert. The event is a good advantage for fashionistas to dress to impress.
Created through the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, the Dubai World Cup provides a truly global stage upon which the best horses in the world come to compete every year.
