Dubai World Cup, one of the most prestigious and the richest horse racing events in the world! This year marks the 11th running of the carnival, a concept that was created in 2004 to further develop the growth and success of the sport in the UAE and Dubai.
Horse racing has long been the sport of the Dubai and to bring that to the forefront on such a grand platform is wonderful to see. Since its inception, the DWCC has served as a springboard for progressive horses to launch into races at the Dubai World Cup, its global appeal is phenomenal as it regularly attracts the highest level of runners from around the world. It is a truly pioneering festival in terms of duration and scope and has successfully attracted racing’s brightest stars.
This just goes to show you, how you can take a beautiful sport and turn the idea into a world class event that inspires people everywhere. A hobby that was once a favourite for the local and expat community here in Dubai, has grown bigger and become more international. Dubai definitely has the talent and ability to making it big with other sports, its only a matter of time before they bring other local sporting teams onto the global platform in an equally grand way.
