Dubai International Arabian Races
Join us on Sunday 28 July for our most unique raceday, as we host an exciting eight race card featuring the world’s best Purebred Arabian racehorses. Admission is free and racegoers will have the chance to win fantastic prizes throughout the afternoon, including a brand new Kia Picanto worth more than £11,000 and a trip to Dubai in free-to-enter prize draws.
Free goodie bags and gifts will be distributed to those arriving early, courtesy of the day’s title sponsor, Shadwell, and Dubai’s ‘family racecourse’, Jebel Ali, who will also be providing designer watches to be drawn throughout the afternoon.
The winner of the Best Dressed Lady competition will win a holiday of Dubai for two, courtesy of the multi award-winning Emirates Airline, where they will enjoy five luxurious nights in one of Roda’s five-star properties.
Children with a creative flare can enter the Best Homemade Children’s Hat competition, or for budding photographers, there is a Selfie Competition, both offering iPads for the winners.
Out on the racetrack, the action is equally as exciting. Staged under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai and one of the world’s leading owner-breeders of Purebred Arabian horses, it is considered the ‘Champions Day’ of Arabian racing. The card will feature an eight-race programme and includes three Group 1 contests and quality supporting races that are guaranteed to attract some of the best Arabian horses and jockeys from across Europe and the Middle East.
