Race Day

The Jebel Ali Racecourse is the perfect place to experience a slice of Dubai that trots away merrily from the brunch and beach cliches. The sprawling racecourse ensconced in a green oasis has VIP, private and public viewing areas. The public area also includes an undulating grassy expanse along with a covered pavilion. Perfect for all those who want their moment in the sun alongside the winners. Families come prepared with overstuffed picnic hampers. Friends shoot the breeze over strong cups of chai while making notes of their favorites. Young boys and girls do what they do best - run around with squealing with laughter. And in the midst of all this, jockeys with intent expressions and magnificent steeds with flowing manes pound the track at regular intervals. A different side of Dubai. You betcha.
