Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 23 March 2022: As part of its long-standing pillar partnership with the Dubai Racing Club, Azizi Developments, a leading private developer in the UAE, hit the draw button at Dubai Opera for the Al Quoz Sprint race it is sponsoring at the Dubai World Cup on the 26th of March 2022.
In horse racing, post positions relate to the stall a horse gets drawn in for a race. The post position is chosen by a draw, which is usually conducted by the racing authorities and involves all horses being picked at random and assigned to a numbered stall. As a pillar sponsor, Azizi Developments pushed the button that activates the randomised draw for the Al Quoz Sprint, the 1200m turf race with a purse of USD 1,500,000, which is the 4th race of the 2022 Dubai World Cup.
In his comments, Mr Mohamed Ragheb Hussein, Chief Development Officer at Azizi Developments, who pushed the button, said: “We are delighted to be the ones to carry out this momentous push of a button. Especially important for races on a straight course, where the track bias can change from race to race, especially when the weather changes the ground, the starting positions can have a significant impact. We are thrilled to once again serve as a pillar partner for this monumental happening, one that reflects the leadership’s ambitions and Dubai’s standing as a highly advanced, welcoming and inclusive city. We will continue to sponsor world class events in the UAE, a worldwide front-runner in both business and tourism.”
The Al Quoz Sprint was first run in 2007 as part of what was known as Dubai International Racing Carnival before becoming part of the Dubai World Cup in 2010, to coincide with the opening of the Meydan Racecourse.
