As most of the region’s socialites know, this time of year means the Dubai World Cup, the richest horse race in the world and one of the most anticipated events on the UAE calendar. And Dubai World Cup 2013 certainly didn’t disappoint. The weather was perfect, the crowds were excited and raring to go.
It was also an important event for Land Rover, the ‘Official Vehicle’ sponsor of the Dubai World Cup for the ninth consecutive year. A selection of 13 model year vehicles were on full display including the world’s finest luxury SUV; the All-New Range Rover. Onlookers also enjoyed the dynamic Range Rover Sport, LR4, and Range Rover Evoque.
Right out the gate, this season’s Dubai World Cup promised to be the most exciting yet. In fact, just before the Cup commenced on March 30, His Highness, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai, personally welcomed contestants. His Highness remarked how the event has become, by far, the most iconic horse race in the world - ever since the American champion Cigar won the first edition of the Dubai World Cup back in 1996.
