Check out Meydan’s top four-legged athletes on a behind-the-scenes stable tour

Fascinated
with all things equine? This'll be right up your alley. You can get up close
and personal with Dubai’s thoroughbred athletes on a behind-the-scenes stables
tour at Meydan. Imagine having all your racing questions answered by the
pros... you'll be able to impress your friends at Ladies’ Day with a lot more
than your fab hat!

Get on the inside track at Meydan’s bustling stable yards ahead of the course’s
first race meeting on Thursday, 8 November. You'll enjoy a full buffet
breakfast at Farriers before heading out to the stables for an hour-long tour.
At the stables with your tour guide, you'll learn all about the horses and the
place they call home. Think walking around the feed room, farrier’s room (shoe
fitting) and the equine swimming pool or treadmill where horses are conditioned
off track.

The tour
will then head back to the grandstand to view the jockeys’ locker rooms, Horse
Connections’ Lounge, parade ring and saddling enclosure areas, which are all
used on race nights. Enjoy!
