Dubai, United Arab Emirates (Sports Network) - The date has been set for the 19th edition of $10 million Dubai World Cup at Meydan Racecourse.
The world's richest thoroughbred race will be conducted in 2014 on Saturday, March 29.
"We look forward to welcoming all the horse owners, trainers and jockeys that will be competing in our racing season," said Saeed Humaid Al Tayer, Emirates Racing Authority Vice Chairman.
The 2013 World Cup was won by 2011 Kentucky Derby winner Animal Kingdom. Owned by Team Valor and trained by Graham Motion, Animal Kingdom was ridden to victory in the 1 1/4-mile race by Joel Rosario who five weeks later would win the Run for the Roses aboard Orb.
