How to enjoy the Dubai World Cup in Dubai
Any horse race is an expensive, prestigious and fashionable event. Of course, the eastern racing Dubai World Cup is the most prestigious in the world.

It takes place in March. The United Arab Emirates welcome top representatives of the equestrianism sport. In the rest of the world, the competition season begins in early May.

This event takes place at the luxurious Meydan Race Track. This sport complex has the premium equipment: modern treadmills for racing, the huge grandstand that can accommodate 60,000 spectators.

You can join the thousands of participants and bet on horse races. By the way, people all over the world may back against the field, and the total amount of stakes often exceeds $100 billion. The Dubai World Cup is always opened by the Dubai Kahayla Classic Race, which admits thoroughbred horses of the Arabian breed only.

The opening ceremony is a perfect show. Its scale and special effects compete with the Olympic Games Opening. This performance resembles the secular reception – European fashion is just everywhere and all the guests must comply with an elegant dress code: suits, extravagant dresses and stylish hats. Moreover, at the Dubai World Cup they choose the best hat and the most stylish couple. Maybe you will be a lucky one?

How much?

entrance to the stadium is free, but seats on the front podium cost from $196.
