Dubai World Cup day features nine races with a total prize pool of US$30 million, including the world's richest race, the US$10 million Dubai World Cup. Held on the last Saturday in March, it’s the highlight of the Middle Eastern racing season and is also arguably the social event of the year: locals, expats and tourists all don their finest to watch the horses. While public gambling is illegal in the UAE, there are sweepstakes for punters. The Meydan Hotel is the perfect stay option for racegoers; book early to secure the best-positioned suites that overlook the course.
