The horse racing season begins on 4 November.
On your marks, get set, race. We are excited as Dubai Racing Club has announced the dates for the 2022-23 season, which will take place at Meydan Racecourse. The races will begin on 4 November and culminate with the Dubai World Cup on 25 March 2023.
The Dubai World Cup will attract trainers and jockeys from all over the world. During the event, there are plenty of opportunities to watch the horses in action, as there will be 21 competitive horse races. Plus, there is a new race, The Arabian Spirit Championship.
Sheikh Rashid bin Dalmook Al Maktoum, chairman of Dubai Racing Club, said: “We are delighted to announce an enhanced programme for the 2022-23 racing season in Meydan. We thank H.H. Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed and the ERA team for their support, which has enabled us to enrich the fixture list and create a dynamic new programme that offers greater opportunities for international horses to compete here during the Carnival.
“We are also grateful for the support of our local horsemen and women, as well as our loyal racegoers, and look forward to welcoming them back to our iconic Meydan Racecourse. Dubai continues to introduce initiatives to boost the sector and revitalise the global community of horse owners, trainers and other equestrian professionals.”
The $30.5million Dubai World Cup is one of the most prestigious horse racing tournaments in the world. Dubai World Cup was launched by Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai in 1996, and continues to be one of the most exciting events in the UAE’s sporting calendar.
