Camel & horse racing in Dubai
Prepare for the races
With horses and camels being such an integral part of Dubai’s history
, it’s no surprise that they’re equally a part of its present. Every year, Dubai World Cup
draws the equestrian elite of the world, fashion aficionados and Dubai’s sophisticated society to the Meydan racecourse to back their favourite stallion at the most important event of the global racing calendar.
Likewise, from October to March spectators can watch camels reach speeds of up to 40 km/h as they thunder along the sandy tracks, cheered on by excited crowds. Set your pulse to the city, and witness the unbridled passion that pumps through Dubai during the year’s biggest races.
