The second richest horse race in the world takes place on Saturday, March 30. The 2019 Dubai World Cup will attract some of the top handicap horses from North America around the globe to Japan.
Not only is the Dubai World Cup one of the most famous and important races in the world, it also takes place in Dubai. That gives online bookies a chance to promote their online racebooks as well as promote international betting.
Check out odds and analysis on this year’s Dubai World Cup. Then, read about a few ways to promote the race!

Meydan Horses Have the Edge
On paper, North America looks tough to beat. The race favorite should go right to the front. Unfortunately for him, though, Capezzano rests right to the inside. Capezzano was sired by Bernardini, who won the Preakness Stakes, and is from an A.P. Indy broodmare. That means he’s a Kentucky bred dirt horse who’s been racing at Meydan.
Watch out for Capezzano to beat North America and Thunder Snow. The rest will scramble to make up ground on the frontrunners. If Capezzano fails, North America or Thunder Snow should pick up the pieces. Even though Thunder Snow must break from post-position 12, he’s the defending champ and finished third in last year’s Breeder’s Cup Classic. He’s classy enough to win from post-position 12.
How to Promote the Dubai World Cup
Start by promoting odds. Favored North America is at 10/3. That translates to 3.33 to 1. With those type of odds, players won’t have to wager too much on the favorite to cash big. Then, if players don’t like the favorite, they can make even more money by betting on one of the other entrants.
Also, educate players about exotic betting. Exotic betting means making an exacta, trifecta, or superfecta wager. Exotics can pay mass amounts and the cost is often only $1. Maybe, even forward a link like the Kentucky Derby Exotic Betting link to your players.
Also make sure to talk about the other races on the Dubai World Cup card. A race like the UAE Derby, as an example, should produce a Kentucky Derby contender. All the turf races on the Dubai World Cup are worth checking out because, again, at this level, favorites don’t win often.
