Since its extravagant beginnings in 1996, the Dubai World Cup has congregated the finest trainers, horses and riders, orchestrating action-packed horse races.
Winners successfully concluding their effort for the top spot have since been awarded the mouth-watering prize pool of $10m for their exploits. This time around the world richest horse race befittingly held at the Meydan Racecourse offers spectators nine nail-biting races - eight thoroughbred and a single purebred Arabian.
American stallion California Chrome, ridden by Victor Espinoza and trained by Art Sherman triumphed as undisputed victor 12 months ago. But with the cash pool raised to $30m and no horse accomplishing an elusive double in the race's history, guests can expect another edition of hotly-contested stallion galloping.
