The Dubai World Cup

with Special Social Diary Correspondent

Jockey Boots and Fancy Suits or as They Say Here, "Suited and Booted" at the Dubai World Cup, the World's Richest Racing Event.

Del Mar Residents, Matt Shillingburg & Susan St John had the extreme pleasure of attending the "World's Richest Racing Event" March 30th, 2013 at Meydan Racing Course in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

On this beautiful sunny Saturday, Emiratis and Expatriates, as they call Susan and I, had the opportunity to mix with fillies, fashion and jockeys as the UAE racing season culminated in the Dubai World Cup, for the 18th running of the most lucrative horse race in the world.

Del Martians think that "Opening Day" in Del Mar is the height of fashion for the racing season but Susan and I were amazed, having been to "Opening Day" in Del Mar for the last 10 years, by the opulence and grandeur that this $27 Million race brings to life. Susan and I soon discovered that the racecourse Meydan, translated from Arabic to English means "Meeting Place" and that it was yesterday as nationalities from around the world converged on one place to experience the thrill and fashion that make up horse racing.  The Dubai World Cup has been considered the peak of horse racing excellence since unbeaten Cigar traveled from the US to Dubai to triumph in the inaugural race 18 years ago.

The Champagne flowed and the fashion showed as you can see by the photos that we took and the wonderful people that we met.  Just a suggestion to all that might be placing the race on their "Bucket List", Emirates Airline flies direct to Dubai from LAX which is what Susan was booked for on this trip.

Gates opened at 2:00 pm in the afternoon with first race at 4:30pm., fireworks at dusk, World Cup race at 10:00 pm followed by a stunning performance by Seal.  An exhausting but exhilarating day at the races.
