Gulf News partners with Dubai Racing Club this Thursday


The Dubai Racing Club is pleased to welcome Gulf News as sponsor of the fourth meeting of the 2008-09 Winter Racing Challenge at Nad Al Sheba on Thursday.

Dubai Racing Club CEO Mr Frank Gabriel Jr said: “It’s fantastic to have Gulf News on board with us once again at Nad Al Sheba.


“As supporters of not only the Winter Racing Challenge, but also the Dubai International Racing Carnival and the Dubai World Cup, we are truly indebted to Gulf News and value our association”.

In addition to the racing action on the track, there is also a whopping total of AED100,875 up for grabs to the lucky race fans who can correctly guess the winners in the ever popular Pick 6 competition.

No-one managed six or five out of six winners last Thursday, and so there is a roll-over jackpot. The breakdown for the Pick 6 and Tricast competitions is as follows:

Pick 6/6: AED57,875
Pick 5/6: AED10,000
Pick 4/6: AED6,000
Pick 3/6: AED4,000
Early Tricast: AED5,000
Middle Tricast: AED10,000
Late Tricast: AED8,000

Thursday’s Gulf News-sponsored card is set to begin at 7pm and there are a number of hospitality options available to suit all tastes and budgets in both the Millennium Grandstand and the Maktoum Grandstand.

Entrance to the public area of the racecourse is free of charge and there are also complimentary transfers to and from Nad Al Sheba from Dubai Marina (by Spinneys), Arabian Ranches (Shopping complex), Wafi (in front of Pyramids) and Emirates Towers (Boulevard entrance by Cartier).

Buses will leave at 6.00pm from these locations, and return departures will be at 10pm from the racecourse.

And off the track, the DRC will be staging the ever-popular BurJuman Ladies Night. Tickets are priced at AED350 per lady.
