You can watch the horse race from the infield, if you want to, but you can’t get a seat on Millionaires Row. You can, however, catch a glimpse of the horses as they pass by. The crowd is generally about 80,000 strong, and you can get an excellent view if you can mix with them.
The Grand National
The Grand National horse race is an annual handicap steeplechase run by National Hunt horses. It was first run in 1839 and is held at the Aintree Racecourse in Liverpool. It is the oldest horse race in the world and is one of the most popular and well-known. It is run every year on the first Saturday in May.
In the Grand National, the horses jump over 30 fences on the course. Most fences are jumped twice, although the famous Water Jump and Chair jump are only jumped once. In total, the course is four hundred and ninety-four yards long.
The Mongol Derby
The Mongol Derby horse race is the world’s longest horse race, spanning 1,000 kilometers through the Mongolian Steppe. This race recreates the system of horse messengers developed by Genghis Khan in 1224. It is held every four years and is a must-see event in Mongolia.
The 12-year-old race kicked off on July 23. There are no clear breakaways or leaders, but it looks to be one of the most competitive races to date. It’s too early to call this year’s Mongol Derby, but the race looks like it will be a thrilling finish.
The Dubai World Cup
The Dubai World Cup is a Thoroughbred horse race that takes place every year in the United Arab Emirates. The race is held at Meydan Racecourse in Dubai, an Emirate of the UAE. The race has been held annually since 1996. Meydan means “place of congregation,” and is home to the racecourse.
Doug O’Neill sent several horses to Dubai for the Winter Carnival and one of these is Get Back Goldie, who won a stakes race in early February. Owned by the same connections as Goldencents, Get Back Goldie has raced on both dirt and turf. However, he has only raced once in a stakes, and won over Meydan’s track.
