Dubai World Cup 2023

The final Saturday in March is now established as the culmination of the Dubai Racing Carnival at Meydan and it concludes with the Dubai World Cup night; a glittering nine-race card with hefty prize money. The feature event is the Dubai World Cup itself, a 10-furlong (1m2f) race run on the dirt track which carried a winning purse in 2022 in excess of £5m.

World Cup Night at Meydan is one of the true global highlights on the racing calendar and an event not to be missed. It is scheduled to take place on Saturday 25th March 2023, with the concluding World Cup race due off at 5pm UK-time.

Sheikh Mohammed’s famous blue silks of Godolphin have been carried to success on nine occasions. His runner Thunder Snow secured back-to-back Dubai World Cup victories in 2018 and 2019 and in doing so became the first horse to win the race twice, while his 2021 win came courtesy of Mystic Guide.

Here are some of the leading contenders to win the 2023 Dubai World Cup at Meydan:
