  • (1888PressRelease) March 19, 2010 - - The ultra urban, modern city of Dubai would once again play host to the Dubai World Cup on 27th March 2010 that is billed as the richest race day in the world with USD$10 million prize money. Held at the newly opened Meydan Racecourse, a gleaming 60,000 seat capacity, state-of-the-art racetrack that comes complete a marina, hotel and an IMAX cinema, the invitation-only event would see the world's finest thoroughbreds taking to the track in a bid to take home the coveted cash prize and global recognition for the trainers and owners as well. Known for their unparalleled level of luxury and service, Dubai hotels would be playing hosts to horse racing enthusiasts and members of the racing fraternity from all corners of the world.

    First held in 1996, the 15-year old Dubai World Cup was the brainchild of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, who has great love of horses and horseracing. The popularity of the race lies not only in its staggering cash prizes but also in Dubai being an international commercial hub and a favourite tourist destination that attracts millions of visitors every year. Aside from the World Cup, other supporting races include the Dubai Duty Free and Dubai Sheema Classic which offer USD$5 million cash prize each. The newest addition to this year's race is the Group 3 Al Quoz Sprint, a 1.2km turf race that offers a handsome USD$1 million. This year's eight-race card is worth a total of USD$26.25 million, ensuring its place as the richest race in the world.

    Lee Lai Huat, CEO of, said, "It's glitzy, glamourous and without a doubt, the best place to be to watch the world's finest thoroughbreds in action. Its inaugural race in 1996 saw the participation of world champions such as Cigar, North America's 1995 'Horse of the Year' that went on to win the first Dubai World Cup."
