The 2009 Dubai International Racing Carnival will see its third meeting of the season take place this Thursday and will be sponsored by DUBAL.

Frank Gabriel Jr, Chief Executive Officer of Dubai Racing Club said: “We are delighted to once again welcome our valued partner, DUBAL, to Nad Al Sheba for the second time this season.

“The Dubai International Racing Carnival continues to live up to expectations and has so far provided fantastic results, both for our international horse connections and local runners.

“We look forward to Thursday’s racemeeting where DUBAL is sure to be rewarded with an exciting card.

Khalid E A Buhumaid Vice President of Corporate Relations & International Affairs added: “As a world-class aluminium smelter and Dubai's industrial flagship, DUBAL is honoured to be associated with an event of the calibre of the Dubai International Racing Carnival: an event which re-affirms why horse racing is known as the sport of kings."

Thursday’s meeting offers 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).
