Official Dubai World Cup Corporate Packages – Meydan Racecourse Hospitality 2018
Meydan Racecourse is one of the most spectacular sporting venues in the world, its one-mile long Grandstand is the longest single structure on the planet and holds up to 60,000 spectators. This stunning venue was opened in 2010 and holds a five-star hotel, marina and nine hole golf course within its unbelievable complex.
In 2018 the Dubai World Cup will once again represent the richest horse racing event anywhere on the planet (carrying a total prize-fund of $27.25 million USD) as the world’s best horses tackle Meydan Racecourse in eight thrilling races including five Group One events.
The feature event of the evening is without doubt The Dubai World Cup which still holds the position as the world’s richest race – with a prize fund of $10,000,000 (US Dollars). In 2016 the Dubai World Cup was taken by one of the true global stars of horse racing as California Chrome atoned for his failure in 2015, with a blistering performance beating Mubtaahij by over three-lengths.
That performance cemented California Chrome’s position as one of the world’s finest performers and capped off another spectacular evening at the Dubai World Cup.
But this terrific event isn’t just about one race. The Dubai Sheema Classic is another world-class Group One event which is the penultimate event on World Cup night.
In 2016 the race was taken by British superstar Postponed (who has since gone on to become the highest rated horse in the world). The Roger Varian star was a handsome winner of the race and subsequently recorded victories at the Epsom Derby Festival and in the Juddmonte International at The York Ebor Festival.
The Group One Dubai Golden Shaheen is another thrilling race on Dubai World Cup Night; forming part of the Global Sprint Challenge (which includes races at Royal Ascot and York Ebor Festival).
The rip-roaring six-furlong contest is one of the fastest races of the season and was taken in 2016 by British jockey Paul Hannagan and Muarrab, who got the better of favourite X Y Jet by just a neck in a breath-taking finish.
