The Dubai World Cup is widely considered one of the most anticipated events of the year in the glittering Emirate of UAE, as well as the richest day of thoroughbred racing in the world. This year, the Meydan Racecourse is hosting the 20th anniversary of the Dubai World Cup, and guests can enjoy world-class racing action at The Meydan Hotel. A true destination hotel, The Meydan Hotel boasts unrivalled views of the racetrack from either the grandstand or from the comfort of the hotel’s elegant dining venues.
