Dubai World Cup

The Dubai World Cup is the equivalent to Kentucky Derby and is held every year on March 30 at the 60,000 seat Meydan Racecourse in Dubai. The Dubai World Cup is the richest horse race in the world with a winner's purse of $10 million. Everyone in attendnace is dressed up in the most proper of horseracing attire. There are Best Dressed contests for men and women, with the winners receiving a Jaguar for a year. We did not win, but there's always next year. The night ends in a spectacular fireworks display, a concert, and an aeronatical show.
