In the first article of a series of the richest horse races in the world, we had learned about two out of the seven ones, namely Saudi Cup and Pegasus World Cup.
Today, we will continue with the next two names, the Dubai World Cup and The Everest. Those horse races offer a large number of prizes and ransom for players.
The Dubai World Cup has been organized every year since 1996, marking the end of the UAE racing season. The Grade 1 race was held at the Meydan Racecourse, the United Arab Emirates.
The total prize fund of this horse race has increased to $12 million, of which the winner of the 2019 edition took home an eye-watering of $7.2 million.
The race with a total length of 10 furlongs has invited four-year-old or above from the Northern Hemisphere and three-year-old or above from the Southern Hemisphere.
Notably, the racing stable of Dubai ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum named Godolphin, has enjoyed this race. It saw the seventh victory in 2018 as Thunder Snow, trained by Saeed bin Suroor, set a new dirt-track record.
2/ The Everest
The world’s richest race Everest, was organized in Royal Randwick, Sydney, Australia. Although it has only existed for two years, Everest has already surpassed the Melbourne Cup as the country’s richest race.
The race has only selected one winner since its inauguration in 2017. There are 12 positions for players to collect the prizes worth about $400,000 each. However, the payoff could be huger.
In 2018, the race organizers increased the prize money to $4.5 million for the winner. The figure hiked up to $10 million in 2019 and is expected to be higher again in 2020.
