We are now 43-days before the day in which the eyes of the world will be focused on Dubai for this day of international champions. I am pleased to welcome Al Tayer Motors as sponsors for our programme this afternoon. Their ongoing support of Meydan and all its equestrian sports is a commitment to UAE sports and its equine tradition. Each year this equine tradition is annually shared with the world through the Dubai World Cup.”
