This is, quite simply, the biggest draw in the horse-racing calendar - the glitziest and most prestigious occasion in the sport, with the highest prize-money purse to boot. On this exclusive trip to Dubai, Mail on Sunday readers will join the world's greatest jockeys and thoroughbreds for the Dubai World Cup at the Meydan racecourse, and enjoy full hospitality, plus tickets to the after-race show and fireworks.
In addition to your premium seat in the astonishing mile-long grandstand, you will also have the chance to meet two of world's great jockeys - Frankie Dettori and Jim Crowley - while famous names from the racing world will also join you at your table during a special breakfast event. "My home away from home, the Dubai World Cup is one of my favourite events of the year. I can't wait to get back out there", says our expert, Frankie Dettori.
But this trip is not just about the racing. This seven-day package also gives you plenty of time to enjoy Dubai's many attractions, from the incredible shopping malls and pristine beaches to the stunning sand dunes beyond the city. And you will stay at the luxurious JW Marriott Marquis, to soak up the sun in one of the great winter sun destinations.

Born in Italy in 1970, Frankie would go on to become one of the greatest jockeys of all time. Astonishingly, he rode more than 100 winners in a season while still a teenager. Perhaps his crowning achievement was riding all seven winners on a single day at Ascot in 1996. He is the most successful jockey in Prix De L'Arc history, having won the race five times - most recently last year when he rode the three-year old filly Enable to a comfortable victory.
