UAE Derby

Race Name Grade Track
UAE Derby 2 Nad Al Sheba Racecourse UAE Derby

UAE Derby

The UAE Derby is one of the highlights of the Dubai World Cup night of racing. The race itself is run over 1800 meters on dirt at the Nad Al Sheba Racecourse in Dubai.

It is a flat horse race for 3-year-old thoroughbreds, and the purse is currently $2 million.

The UAE Derby was inaugurated in 2000 and two years later received Group II rank. In 2002 the race distance was increased to 2000 meters, but reverted back in 2004 to 1800 meters. The UAE Derby is open to both fillies and colts from the Northern and Southern hemispheres. Horses from the Southern hemisphere have fared well in this race, although it clearly is not quite a Group One test, as yet, despite the enormous stakes on offer.
