Horseracing began in the Emirate in 1981, when a camel track hosted the first thoroughbred race meeting. In 1992 the Dubai Racing Club was established and the official opening at Nad Al Sheba Racecourse. The Dubai World Cup was first held in 1996 with the architectural masterpiece, the Meydan Grandstand opening in 2010, the world’s largest integrated racing facility, with a seating capacity for over 60,000.
Significant steps have been taken towards Dubai’s energy conservation targets to make the Emirate cleaner and greener by 2021. As a part of this programme and ahead of The Dubai World Cup, Luceco energy efficient LED floodlights have recently been installed. Conventional 400W Metal Halide floodlights were replaced with 180W LED Floodlights, providing a 65% energy saving and reducing carbon emission by 740 tonnes annually.
