Every racegoer who attends a meeting at Riccarton Park or Wellington Races between now and the Gr.1 NZ Al Basti Equiworld Dubai NZ 2000 Guineas meeting at Riccarton Park on November 10, 2018 and Gr.1 Al Basti Equiworld Dubai NZ Oaks meeting at Trentham Racecourse on March 16, 2019, respectively have a chance to win.

“Al Basti Equiworld is delighted to support New Zealand Thoroughbred Racing and we are sure this incentive will prove popular with racegoers at Riccarton Park and Wellington,” said Michael O’Hagan.


“We look forward to welcoming the winners to Meydan in March for what promises to be another spectacular renewal of the world’s greatest race meeting, The Dubai World Cup.”


Created through the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Dubai World Cup race meeting is the world’s richest with total prizemoney of US$35 million. The meeting features six Group One races and three Group Two races, with the US$12 million Gr.1 Dubai World Cup the pinnacle event. The 2019 edition of the Dubai World Cup takes place on Saturday March 30, 2019.


Racegoers will be required to fill in an entry form in the race book and place it into one of the marked entry barrels on course. Participants can enter once each time they attend a race meeting, meaning that those who attend multiple meetings at a venue have additional chances of winning the prize.
