"With the milestone running of the 20th Dubai World Cup we are entering a big season for Dubai Racing Club," Martin Talty, Dubai Racing Club's International Manager said. "The prize purses for the Dubai Sheema Classic and the Dubai Duty Free were both increased to $6m each last season to mark the occasion and we are confident that we will be successful in attracting if not equal numbers then even greater numbers of international competitors for the coming season."
