Dubai World Cup Betting 2021
The current paucity of racing in many parts of the world due to coronavirus, the 2020 Dubai World Cup is cancelled and will not go ahead at Meydan on Saturday, March 28th, even behind closed doors.
While the racecourse atmosphere may be lacking, the decision not to go ahead means racing fans have to wait until 2021 for the opportunity to see some of the best dirt horses in the world locking horns over 10 furlongs (2000m) in pursuit of a share of $12,000,000 prize money.

Dubai World Cup 2021 Betting Tips
Since its inception in 1996 when the Dubai World Cup immediately established itself as a major international contest due to the victory of the great US-trained Cigar, the race has been won by a host of star performers. In 1997 Sir Michael Stoute became the only British trainer to win when his tremendous colt Singspiel landed the spoils, while the brilliant Godolphin-owned Dubai Millenium romped to an extraordinary success in 2000 under Frankie Dettori.
Trained by Saeed bin Suroor, (who with a remarkable total of nine wins stands head and shoulders above his rivals as the winning-most trainer in the history of the race), Dubai Millennium was the first of eight winners of the race for the sponsors, who have also taken the last two renewals with Thunder Snow, the only horse to win the race twice.
