Last year we told you about the annual equestrian event Dubai loves to associate itself with, the Dubai World Cup. Continuing where we left off, we would like to announce that it is that time of the year where the emirate will host the 2009 edition of the Dubai World Cup.
Executives and businessmen with an interest in horseflesh and travelling to the emirate during this time of the year for a MICE in Dubai will find the month of March a good time to indulge their interests. The world cup is to be held at the Nad Al Sheba Racecourse on March 28 this year.
The Arabs have always been proud of their horseflesh and many of the top horses currently competing at the races have descended from pure Arabian bloodlines. While this certainly adds to the fierce competition, it never fails to remind spectators of the aesthetic leanings of the sport.
Information on the events and races included in this year’s world cup can be found at Dubai World Cup, after which you could visit our Dubai travel company for accommodations and transport bookings.
