Horse Racing is not only a sport but also a tradition throughout the entire Arab World and the city of Dubai is proud to host one of the biggest Horse Racing tournament known as Dubai World Cup. Dubai is a city where sports know no boundaries. From Golf to cricket, from desert safari to Tennis, from Formula 1 racing to Rugby tournaments Dubai is a place where sports thrive.

His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the ruler of Dubai is fond of horses and horsing events. He is known for his love of horses and his fondness for thoroughbred horse racing and breeding. Held every year since 1996 in the month of March, the event attracts several tourists and horse lovers from across the globe. The first Dubai World Cup was won by an American horse known as Cigar in a heroic manner and thus begins the long and valued history of Dubai Racing.

In 2010 realizing the demand of a bigger and better place to hold Dubai World Cup, Meydan Racecourse was unveiled. It is a state of the art stadium with a capacity to accommodate cheering 60,000 fans. Another highlight of the Race course is the The Meydan Hotel. And the good news for My Dubai Stay visitors is that Dubai holiday apartments are located near to the Meydan Racecourse. This year Dubai World Cup is on 31st March 2012. Watch as the best horses from all around the world will race for a grand purse of 10 million dollars.

Dubai World cup offers racing fans an unforgettable experience. It also helps in making Dubai the premier destination for sports, cultural, business, music, entertainment and community events.Horse racing is undoubtedly fun. Visit Dubai, rent a furnished apartment in Dubai and see what makes this sports unique and special.
