Dubai World Cup


Race Name Grade Track
Dubai World Cup 1 Nad Al Sheba Racecourse Dubai World Cup


Dubai World Cup

The world's richest horserace with a purse of $6 million is fast becoming the most prestigious horserace in the world as well. The Dubai World Cup has successfully challenged the hegemonic status of the Breeders' Cup Classic and the Arc, traditionally the two greatest horse races in the USA and Europe respectively. The Dubai World Cup was designed to bring the world's best horses to the UAE, the base from where the Godolphin empire has revolutionized modern horseracing.

A quick glance of the past runners and winners of this magnificent race will reveal the success of this plan. Because the race is run on a dirt track it naturally suits the top American racehorses far better than their European turf-favoring counterparts, but horses that are based in Dubai have certainly performed creditably in this race as well in the past.

Nad Al Sheba

The Dubai World Cup is run at the Nad Al Sheba Racecourse over a distance of 10 furlongs or 2000 meters. It is a left-handed dirt track that resembles the majority of USA racetracks. Nad Al Sheba has become an international hub of horseracing with foreign trainers, jockeys, and horses from South Africa to the USA competing against one another.

The tremendously positive impact of Dubai's sheiks on the global sport of horseracing cannot be underestimated, and the fruits of their efforts are regularly on display at Nad Al Sheba, Dubai's premier racetrack.
