Dubai racecourse spreads its bets

The world's richest horse race, the $10m Dubai World Cup, takes place in a new venue this year, the Meydan racecourse.

The facility cost more than $1bn to build and will also be used as a concert and conference venue.

With a racing season of only three months, the venue's other uses may be vital if the Dubai Racing Club is to stay afloat.
