Meydan Racetracks

Dubai, U.A.E

The centerpiece of the grandstand – turf and all-weather tracks – is designed in concentric formation in an oval layout with both home straights designed to capture 700 meters of audience in the tiered seats and the hospitality suites. The racetracks allow the most exciting finishes to be viewed up-close.

The turf track is designed with 2,400m length and 30m wide turf of top quality bermuda grass. Inside the turf track and following a similar configuration is the synthetic all-weather track of 1,750m length and 25m wide.

A network of horse tunnels allows movements below the racetracks without unnecessarily delaying the races. The tunnels restrict access to the racetracks which help in maintaining the high quality of the turf and all-weather tracks. In total, there are five tunnels consisting of 2 horse tunnels, 2 service tunnels, and 1 pedestrian tunnel to serve the racetracks. The support services for the racetracks include a massive underground network of cables and irrigation lines that help maintain upkeep of the tracks. A total of 52 light poles provide the highest quality of illumination exclusively suited for horseraces alone.
