The 2022/2023 racing programme for Meydan Racecourse, as well as the enhanced $7.5-million Dubai World Cup Carnival programme, was revealed by the Dubai Racing Club (DRC) on Friday.

The UAE's signature racecourse will kickstart its season on Nov. 4, the first of 21 meetings planned for the upcoming season. Next year marks the 20th edition of the DWCC, which starts on Jan. 6. Some tweaks to the programme include the addition of two new races: the $150,000 Thunder Snow Challenge over 2000 metres on dirt and the $150,000 Ipi Tombe S. on turf for fillies and mares over 1400 metres. There are also 20 $75,000 handicaps split evenly between dirt and turf, and the Jumeirah Turf Series for 3-year-olds will also return for its second season. Super Saturday will take place on Mar. 4, and the seasonal finale, the $30.5-million Dubai World Cup night programme, is scheduled for the evening of Mar. 25.

Sheikh Rashid bin Dalmouk Al Maktoum, Chairman of Dubai Racing Club, said, “We are delighted to announce an enhanced programme for the 2022/23 racing season in Meydan. We thank HH Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed and the ERA team for their support, which has enabled us to enrich the fixture list and create a dynamic new programme that offers greater opportunities for international horses to compete here during the Carnival.

“We are also grateful for the support of our local horsemen and women, as well as our loyal racegoers, and look forward to welcoming them back to our iconic Meydan Racecourse for the first of our 'Racing In Dubai' meetings on Nov. 4.”
