Dubai World Cup
2023 Dubai World Cup
Date: Saturday, March 25, 2023
Location: Meydan Racecourse, Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Dubai World Cup TV Coverage: TVG
The first major horse race of the year is the Dubai World Cup. As we have seen in other sports like tennis and golf, the Dubai World Cup has taken on increased importance because of extremely generous prize pools that entice some of the top horses in the world to travel to the United Arab Emirates to take part in this event. The 2023 Dubai World Cup is the marquee race of Dubai World Cup Night, which has eight thoroughbred races and one Purebred Arabian race. The Dubai World Cup has a prize purse of $12 million dollars with the winner taking home $7.2 million. The 2023 Dubai World Cup is a 2,000 meter (approximately 1.2 miles) race that will be held at Meydan Racecourse in Dubai on Saturday, March 25, 2023.
The Triple Crown of horse racing features three of the biggest United States races on the annual calendar. It all begins on the first Saturday in May with the Kentucky Derby. It continues two weeks later with the Preakness Stakes and wraps up with the Belmont three weeks later. Any horse that can win all three races earns the rare Triple Crown. There was a long Triple Crown drought, as from 1979 to 2014, there was no winner, but American Pharoah ended the famine in 2015, and Justify won the Triple Crown in 2018. The Belmont Stakes is where the Triple Crown is clinched or lost.
149th Kentucky Derby
Date: Saturday, May 6, 2023
Location: Churchill Downs, Louisville, KY
Race Distance: 1 1/4 miles ( 10 furlongs ), dirt track
Purse: Approximately $3 million
No race has more prestige and tradition than the Kentucky Derby. Owners, trainers, and jockeys would gladly trade all of their other wins for just one Kentucky Derby title.
The Kentucky Derby is the most prestigious horse race in the United States. Since 1875, the finest thoroughbreds in the world have descended upon Louisville to find out which three-year-old is the fastest, and over 100,000 people will flock to the spectacle to sip on mint juleps and cheer on the ponies too.
148th Preakness Stakes
Date: Saturday, May 20, 2023
Location: Pimlico Race Course, Baltimore, MD
Race Distance: 1 3/16 Miles
Purse: $1.5 million
The Preakness Stakes doesn’t have quite the same prestige as the Kentucky Derby, but the second leg of the Triple Crown is one year older than the Derby.
Hall of Fame trainer D. Wayne Lucas always liked the Preakness for its more laid-back and fun atmosphere after the pressure-packed Kentucky Derby. We don’t see nearly as many horses enter the Preakness Stakes, so it’s a more natural run compared to the 20-horse fields we often see at Churchill Downs.
155th Belmont Stakes
Date: Saturday, June 10, 2023
Location: Belmont Park, Elmont, NY
Race Distance: 1 1/2 miles ( 12 furlongs ), dirt track
Purse: Approximately $1 million
Known as “The Test of the Champion,” the Belmont Stakes is the longest of the Triple Crown races. Many horses have won the first two legs of the Triple Crown, but it’s uncommon to see a horse that can complete the final marathon leg and all of its pressure. Secretariat’s 31-length win at the 1973 Belmont remains one of the most awe-inspiring performances in sports history.
2023 Breeders' Cup
Date: November 3-4, 2023
Location: Santa Anita Park, Arcadia, California
Horse racing rarely draws mainstream attention outside the Triple Crown, but the Breeders’ Cup is one exception. For two days, the greatest horses, trainers, and jockeys in the world convene for a level of quality that is unsurpassed in the sport. The Breeders’ Cup Classic is the climactic race with the greatest living horses of any age running for glory.
