Celebrating 25 years in March 2020, the Dubai World Cup meeting is the world’s richest day of horse racing. Total purses for the card, which will feature six Group 1 and three Group 2 fixtures, are worth USD$35 million.
Created through the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, the Dubai World Cup provides a truly global stage upon which the best horses in the world come to compete every year. The race is held at Meydan Racecourse on the last Saturday in March and is the pinnacle of the UAE racing season. It's also one of the highlights of Dubai's social calendar, with fashionistas taking advantage of the occasion to dress to impress.
