DUBAI WORLD CUP 2012 is officially the world's most expensive horse race, worth an eye widening $25.26 million. An ultra-glamorous audience of 60,000 fill the Meydan Racecourse to cheer the world’s finest thoroughbreds and nimble jockeys round the track. The 7.5 million sq. m Meydan Racecourse includes Meydan Marina, The Meydan — the world's first 5-star trackside hotel with 285 rooms, 2 race tracks and the Grandstand, which comprises a hotel, restaurants, a racing museum and 72 corporate suites for entertaining throughout the year.

Perhaps part of the Dubai World Cup’s success is not only due to the state-of-the-art race track, but the burgeoning status of Dubai as an international crossroads and global transport hub, and of course a first-class tourist destination, evidenced by more than 50,000 racegoers attending the Dubai World Cup meeting each year.
