Dubai World Cup
Dubai World Cup (Meydan Race Course, Al Meydan Road, Nad Al Sheba, Dubai) – with horses being popular with Dubai ruler Sheikh Mohammed Al Maktoum and throughout the Gulf region (as part of that area’s heritage), horse races are as serious as endeavor here, as hockey is in Canada, and baseball is in America. Held every March, this tournament attracts world-class thoroughbred race horses and their jockeys, competing for multi-million-dollar prizes. Along with that event, other horse races are held from November to March. Along with the race track, The Meydan (a luxury five-star hotel), is within the grounds.
