Dubai World Cup: Races at Meydan

Apologies for the long gap in posting, it was that time of the year when visitors and bugs in the air find their way into our house and we are only just beginning to recover from the onslaught, just kidding.. our doors are wide open for our lovely friends and family :)

A quick one today to mention the upcoming Finale event at Meydan for the ongoing Horse Racing World Cup on the 28th of March 2014. The event looks very promising with performances from the likes of Jennifer Lopez. Tickets are in various categories: AED 50, 350, 1000 etc. Available at:

I haven't been to this event in particular in the past but did get a chance to visit the race course recently while my parents were here. We went in the lower sections where entry is free. The crowd was not the uber stylish, dressed up kind but they all knew their horses!

When we entered the arena, we were provided with cards to tick on and place our bets through. it is a bizarre system of not paying entry but still having the chance to win a large amount depending on how many guesses you get right.

All in all, a great way to spend a day being out in the open, enjoying good weather, good company and exciting live sport!
