Dubai World Cup night is one of the most prestigious and lucrative cards in the entire sporting world. Horses who impress during the Dubai World Cup Carnival will earn their places in races like the Godolphin Mile, the Al Quoz Sprint and the UAE Derby. The card then ends with three excellent Grade One races, and one of the biggest races in the world, the Dubai World Cup.

Covid-19 meant the 2020 Dubai World Cup was canceled, and current restrictions will see the 2021 Dubai World Cup carnival played out behind closed doors. All of the races will be televised, though. Visit our UAE Racing Live Streaming page for more details.
