Horse Racing
The horse has always been an essential part of Arab life. Until recently, however, the relationship took the
form of an enduring partnership based upon survival in one of the world's toughest environments. With the arrival of prosperity, the Emirati's relationship with the horse made a crucial shift from survival to recreation. Today, all forms of equestrian sport are enormously popular in the UAE, with the pure-bred Arabian horse still having pride of place.
Professional racing as it is now practiced in the UAE did not begin until the season of 1991-92. During the 1990s the sport enjoyed phenomenal growth throughout the UAE, and the country now boasts a number of prestigious racing venues and hosts the world's richest horse race, the Dubai World Cup.
A recent innovation but already one of the most talked about races in the sport's history, the 1999 Emirate s-sponsored Dubai World Cup, held at Nad al-Sheba race course in March, had a total guaranteed purse of US $5 million - an increase of US $1 million over 1998. Other increases in sponsorship brought the total prize money on the night to a staggering US $6.25 million.
