The Dubai World Cup

The Dubai World Cup is now firmly established as a premier event in the worldwide racing calendar and, with its top quality field of participants from across the globe, it is a day of truly international racing. Over the years the Dubai World Cup has grown spectacularly. First run in 1996 the event carried a total purse of $4 million. In 2018 this had risen to over $30 million.

Dubai is the perfect destination offering miles of golden sands to sleek city attractions. Your stay here is unique in the sense that you can experience so many contrasting elements in such a short timeframe. The words ‘I’m bored’ will never be uttered. Laze by the water’s edge in the morning, enjoy duty free shops and indoor skiing in the afternoon, and then make your way to the world’s only 7-star hotel for dinner and drinks!
