Welcome to the world's richest horse race! - The Dubai World Cup was created by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum back in 1996, as a new and worthy contender to the horse racing circuit classic races like the Belmont Stakes and the Kentucky Derby. Based on the incredibly luxurious Meydan Race Course in Dubai (United Arab Emirates) that includes a 5-star hotel and a museum, this globe-famous competition takes place on the last Saturday of March each year, consisting of 9 thoroughbred and 1 purebred Arabian races.

It became clear from the very start that the world-leading Darley Stud & Godolphin Racing operators, experts in the thoroughbred breeding field, would take this unique chance to show the hungry horse racing audiences with a spectacle unlike any other on earth, and a single purse reward that would make the top American racing venue prizes pale in sheer comparison.

Dubai Racing's highlight is without a doubt the Dubai World Cup Night, where a selected number of the world's best horses compete to win the fantastic 10 million (USD purse). This amazing prize had remained as the single highest horse racing bounty ever, until it was recently beat by the 2017 edition of the Pegasus World Cup. Nevertheless, it would be a safe bet to expect this middle-eastern wonder world of horse racing to topple the odds and once again become the richest venue of the planet.
