Dubai World Cup
The Dubai World Cup, which was first run in 1996, is a Group 1 race run over one mile and two furlongs at Meydan and was formerly the richest race in the world with a purse of $10 million before it was overtaken by the inaugural Pegasus World Cup in 2017. The race is held at the end of March as part of the Dubai World Cup Night, the single richest race card of thoroughbred racing in the world, featuring five Group 1 contests.
American horses have a good record in the Dubai World Cup - recent victors include the 2016 Breeders’ Cup Classic winner Arrogate and the leading North American prize-money earner California Chrome.
