The Dubai World Cup at the end of March, which coincides with the Dubai Shopping Festival. It is sponsored by Emirates Airlines and is worth US$ 6 Million, making it the richest horse race in the world, and it takes place at Meydan racecourse. The race is also run as the climax to the Dubai Racing Carnival which begins at the end of January.
Dubai World Cup betting has grown enormously over the last few years in the UK as both dedicated racing channels Racing UK and Attheraces cover the event live. Interestingly there are increasing numbers who bet online for this race, particularly from within Dubai due to the unavailability of track side Bookmakers.
