The Dubai World Cup might fill the nation’s front pages with outlandish hairstyles, expensive hats and more diamond accessories than a De Beers clearance sale, but there is some horse racing going on.

Indeed, the world’s richest horse race, which takes place on March 28, is one of the centerpieces of the global racing calendar, attracting some of the best thoroughbreds on the planet. 

If you’re interested in knowing more about them, and fancy doing so accompanied by some of the best food in the Marina, then you might want to head to Frankie’s Bar & Grill on March 25, when the man himself, champion jockey Frankie Dettori, will be part of a special preview.

The ‘One to Watch’ extravaganza at the restuarant, a joint venture between the jockey and Marco Pierre White, will be hosted by racing presenter and pundit Harry Tregoning, and will feature Frankie’s expertise and insight alongside that of trainer David Marnane and a number of other racing professionals.

A four-course set menu of “Frankie’s Favourites” completes the evening that ought to help you get a little more out of race day.


Four course set menu and welcome drink: AED400
