Mohammed Al Muallem, CEO and Managing Director, DP World, UAE Region, said: “Dubai Turf continues to bring the best out of the finest thoroughbreds.  It’s this spirit of competition and performance excellence that has convinced us to be a Pillar Partner of the Meydan Racing Club since 2015. As a global trade enabler with operations in over 40 countries, we connect with the world through this important race and support Dubai as a destination for sport, tourism and trade.”
