“2019 Dubai World Cup Day” was held on March 30, 2019 in the Meydan Racecourse in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The biggest highlight of this World Cup is that the prize money has greatly improved compared with the previous year; that is, the total amount of bonuses from USD$30mn for last year to USD$35mn this year. Among them, the bonus of a single Dubai World Cup race, a highly focused event, increased from $10 million to $12 million.
RACINGLAND founder Brian Tse was invited to attend the opening ceremony. He acknowledged that the Dubai World Cup has always been one of the most important part of the world horse racing series, which has maturely developed with the United Arab Emirates horse racing industry. The commercial operation is inextricably linked to the financial support of the Dubai royal family. “The horse racing industry has also developed quite strongly in Hong Kong; Many high-quality racing stallions have been exhibited in Dubai for a long time and have achieved impressive results”, Brian said, “To let the public know clearly that the horse racing industry is RACINGLAND’s original intention, and the participation of more enthusiasts in the technological approach is the business practice of RACINGLAND, we have been actively and constantly seeking to establish more partnerships to better promote the horse racing industry.”
All the world’s G1 level horse racing events have always been inseparable from the nourishment of commercial operations. The Dubai Royal Family, with its strong financial resources and noble reputation, is undoubtedly a loyal supporter and a strong promoter of the previous “Dubai (Horse Racing) World Cups”, and they have made the “Dubai World Cup” series a world-renowned celebration since its birth. This has also prompted countless good-natured race horses to come from all over the world every year to compete and make the annual “Dubai World Cup Horse Racing Day” a veritable horse racing festival.
