The 2014 Dubai World Cup Night is drawing closer, with the world's best jockeys gearing up for a total of eight thoroughbred and one Purebred Arabian races on Saturday, March 29.

With a total purse of £16.44 million, the Dubai World Cup is the crown jewel of one-day thoroughbred racing, its final race rightfully holding the title of "World's Richest Horse Race."

All betting odds are courtesy of oddschecker.com, unless stated otherwise.

 

Date: Saturday, March 29

Time: 9:30 a.m. EST/1:30 p.m. GMT

Venue: Meydan Racecourse, Dubai, UAE

TV info and live stream: All races will be broadcast on HRTV, with live streaming available through the network's official website.

 

The hyper-modern Meydan Racecourse has hosted the Dubai World Cup since its opening in 2010 and will be receiving some very special guests alongside the world-class jockeys this Saturday, as reported by the World Cup's official Twitter:

 

Schedule

The day will start with the Arabian Purebred-race, the Kahayla Classic, before working its way towards the big World Cup race that will conclude the event.

Ron The Greek is seen as one of the favourites to win the 2014 World Cup, but a difficult draw has the multiple graded stakes facing the far outside post, as reported by Claire Novak:

Ruler Of The World will be in stall 12, which also happens to be the stall that housed last year's winner Animal Kingdom. BETDAQ has learned this year's hopeful recently had a partial switch in ownership:

Akeed Mofeed will be coming into this race as the highest rated contender at 123, and SCMP Racing Post thinks a favourable draw in stall four should make its trainer very happy:
