Following the success of our inaugural Dubai World Cup trip this year, we are delighted to offer a new package for the 2020 event. Exclusive to IJF members, this amazing trip will see you not only experience a race day like no other, with full hospitality and tickets to the star-studded evening concert and fireworks, but you will also enjoy meet one of the great names in horse racing - Frankie Dettori. You will attend a private drinks party hosted by Frankie, enjoy Breakfast with the Stars where you will mingle with the great and the good from the racing world, and be hosted by a member of the IJF team on the race day itself where you will enjoy Gallery Hospitality.
Away from the racing, this six-day package also gives you plenty of time to explore Dubai's famous shops and attractions, soak up the sun in one of the great winter sun destinations , take a behind-the-scenes tour of the Meydan stables, take a dune dinner safari, or relax at your choice of hotel - the Vida Downtown or the Address Palace.
And if that was not reason enough, by joining this trip you will helping to raise money to support the IJF and those jockeys who are injured, unable to ride, or generally in need.
