Dubai World Cup

31 March 2018

Overview


The $30 million Dubai World Cup, which takes place on the final weekend in March each year, is the biggest sporting and social event in Dubai. Based at the unique, state-of-the-art Meydan Racecourse, where the Grandstand measures 1 mile in length, the Dubai World Cup attracts the biggest names in racing to Dubai. The day features nine high-class races including six Group 1 races and three Group 2 contests.

The event is brought to a spectacular close by the world’s richest horse race; the $10m Dubai World Cup, won in 2017 by Mike Smith aboard Arrogate trained by Bob Baffert. However, the race was not as easy for Arrogate as most would have expected, as Arrogate was bumped twice coming out the gates and at one point was around 15 lengths behind the leader. He went on to win the race by just over 2 lengths and is now the Highest earning racehorse of all time! Check out the video below!

Don't miss the Dubai World Cup in 2018 as we can offer you packages that include a Meet & Greet with Racing Breaks Ambassadors Frankie Dettori & Jim Crowley!

Our packages are available to be booked with just a £100 per person deposit so secure your place early and guarantee your spot at the event in 2018!
