The Dubai World Cup returns for its 26th edition at the Meydan racecourse on March 26. The event is set to be historic because of its unprecedented allocation and the potential of the horses competing, but also because of its festive and fashionable event.
The Group 1 gallop horse race will feature the world’s best performing thoroughbreds aged 4 and up on a 2,000-meter dirt track made of sand, silt and clay. The event has reached the highest prize money in its history, amounting to $12 million, making it the second most endowed flat race in the world.
An equestrian, festive and fashionable event
The Dubai World Cup is not only for horse racing fans. The occasion is also a must for fashion and music fans. The dress code of this day will be high fashion. A prize will be awarded to the best dressed women, men and couples. The most creative hat will also deserve its own decoration. In terms of concerts, a triple performance is planned for the after-race as the site will host the British Becky Hill, Rudimental or Sigala.

The horses to follow for victory
Among the 11 runners, 6 horses at the start have already won Group 1 competitions, which makes them real stars. One of them, the American favorite Life Is Good, has only been beaten once. Although the horse seems to have reached his best form, he will run the 2000 meters for the first time. His biggest competitor will be Hot Rod Charlie, a regular at the distance, who warmed up by winning the Maktoum Challenge Round 2. Beware of surprises!
