Dubai World Cup
The World Richest Race Meeting
29th March 2003


The Group I Dubai World Cup, sponsored by Emirates Airline, is run at Nad Al Sheba race course in Dubai and is worth US$6,000,000 making it the richest race in the world. It is the highlight of a meeting worth US$15,250,000, which is the world's richest race meeting.

There are seven races on the programme, six for thoroughbreds and one for Purebred Arabians. Of the six thoroughbred events, four are run at Group I level, the highest standard in international racing.

These are the Dubai World Cup, the US$2,000,000 Dubai Duty Free, the US$2,000,000 Dubai Sheema Classic and the US$2,000,000 Dubai Golden Shaheen. The other two thoroughbred races are the US$2,000,000 UAE Derby and the US$1,000,000 Godolphin Mile and they are run at Group II level, one step below Group I level.

The Purebred Arabian race is the Dubai Kahayla Classic and is run under Group I status and at US$250,000 it is the richest race for Purebred Arabians in the world.

Special arrangements have been made this year too to enhance the experience of this event. As the epicenter of the social scene, the International Village is improved every year to accommodate everyone's needs. Access to the International Village is by entrance tickets priced at Dhs 150. The village incorporates a multitude of food and beverage outlets offering a variety of refreshment options, Exhibition Stand, Live Entertainment and giant screen race coverage.

The Picnic Garden, a private enclosure located close to the track rails on the 9th fairway, allows guests to enjoy the delights of their pre ordered hampers prepared by Jumeirah Hospitality. A selection of menus is available for a minimum of 2 guests starting from Dhs 400/- per hamper, which are all presented within a souvenir hamper.

The Millennium Terrace encompassing the entire level 2 is for reserved grandstand seating and will provide the convenience of a dining area on the open concourse overlooking the track along with licensed beverage outlets
