2001 DUBAI WORLD CUP SOUVENIR VIDEO (Documentary)
Since 1996, Dubai has played host to the Dubai World Cup, and in its short history, the race has quickly established itself as one of the world's most important horse racing events. With its huge purse of $6 million - the largest offered in all of racing, top horses from around the world have shipped in to the ancestral home of the Thoroughbred in hopes of capturing the winner's share and the unofficial title of Horse of the World. The Group I Dubai World Cup stands alone at the summit of international horse racing. As horse racing entered a new era in the 21st Century, it was the Dubai World Cup, inaugurated in 1996, that paved the way forward.
With the United Arab Emirates hosting what is now the centerpiece of international racing and recognized as the Thoroughbred "World Championship" the Dubai World Cup represents the wheel turning full circle. Every Thoroughbred in the world today descends from the three Arabian stallions exported from this part of the world - the Darley Arabian, the Byerley Turk and the Godolphin Arabian.
