Horse racing has become quite a glamorous activity, and in Dubai, Meydan Racecourse promises an experience unlike any other. Dripping with luxury, this racecourse can accommodate over 60,000 spectators. Every year, it hosts the Dubai World Cup which, boasting of prize money of more than USD 26 million, is believed to be the world’s richest race day. Meydan Racecourse is operational from November to March every year. From April to October, it typically serves as a business and conference centre.
On other months of the year, the racecourse hosts the Winter Racing Challenge and Dubai International Racing Carnival. Opened in March 2010 as a replacement to Nad Al Sheba Racecourse, Meydan Racecourse district measures a whopping 67 million square feet. The overall ‘Meydan City’ development is said to cover 200 million square feet, including two race tracks, a five-star hotel property (the first of its kind trackside hotel), a nine-hole golf course, a horse-racing museum, and a gallery.
