To truly conquer the thoroughbred racing world, first you have to win in Dubai.

Conceived in 1996, the Dubai World Cup is a race for four-year-olds & up and for Southern Hemisphere Thoroughbred three-year-olds & up run over a distance of 2000 metres and until the Pegasus World Cup came and trumped it, the DWC was the world’s richest race.

The race routinely draws the best from America and the Arabic nations to compete for the prize, with horses from Australia, the UK and New Zealand rarely contesting the DWC.

Held on a dirt surface, the Dubai World Cup was first held at the new Meydan Racecourse on March 27, on all-weather surface known as Tapeta. The race shifted back to a dirt surface back in 2015 to cater to the visiting Americans.
