Dubai World Cup Carnival

Emirates is the official airline of the Dubai World Cup Carnival, which hosts the world’s richest horse race—the Dubai World Cup. The Carnival runs from January through March each year at the prestigious Meydan Racecourse, designed to host the world’s best race horses, with each night of racing featuring different events. On the penultimate day of racing—known as Super Saturday—Emirates partners with Meydan in sponsoring a stellar night of prep races for many of the horses looking to compete in the Dubai World Cup.

Emirates has been synonymous with horse racing for many years, and horse racing now forms an important part of our sponsorship portfolio. See also Races and Stables.
