Dubai Duty Free International Weekend 2020


The Dubai Duty Free International Weekend at Newbury provides a thrilling culmination to the world-leading airport retailer’s season of horseracing sponsorships.


It has grown to become one of the most important days in the British racing calendar with a programme of high profile and valuable events. The stellar card features three Group races and a richly-endowed handicap.


The highlight of this outstanding end of season cavalcade is the Group 2 Dubai Duty Free Mill Reef Stakes for two-year-olds designed to attract horses with Classic race potential. The race is named after the sire of two Derby winners. His own outstanding racing career included victories in the Derby, the Eclipse, King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes and the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe. 


The six-furlong contest, boasts an excellent roll of honour including in recent years’ Ribchester, Harry Angel who became Europe’s top sprinter and James Garfield.


The Dubai Duty Free Mill Reef Stakes is supported by two Group 3 events. The important £90,000 Dubai Duty Free Legacy Cup over eleven furlongs and the Group 3 Dubai International Airport World Trophy over five furlongs.


It is sure to be a day of top-class Flat racing and off the track entertainment includes the Dubai Duty Free marquee and live music.

With all this to enjoy it will be the perfect end to the Dubai Duty Free racing season.
