DUBAI, UAE, Jan. 13 /CNW/ - Dubai Racing Club (DRC) today announced the launch of its revamped official website, http://wwww.dubairacingclub.com, in the lead up to the 2010 Dubai International Racing Carnival.
January 28 marks the first meeting of the Carnival at the new Meydan Grandstand and Racecourse and will culminate with the 15th Dubai World Cup on March 27.
Showcasing a countdown timer, racing calendar and programme for the Carnival, information on ticketing and dining are available on the website, including rates for general admissions, packages, banqueting and corporate entertainment at the Meydan Grandstand Suites. The site also premieres a new secure and user-friendly booking engine and payment gateway to facilitate consumers who wish to enjoy a night at the races at one of the several dining establishments in Meydan.
Horsemen including owners, trainers and jockeys, will also have quick and easy access to crucial information, including details about rules and regulations, application forms, quarantine and vaccination, transport, subsidies and incentives, weight for age, international agents and track surfaces.
For all media representatives, the Media Centre will also be the essential resource portal for all news, videos and photographs related to the Carnival.
The new DRC website will enable essential information such as race cards, form guides and results to be pulled real-time via the Emirates Racing Authority (ERA) website. ERA is the internationally recognised governing body for horse racing in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
"The new Dubai Racing Club website is pivotal in how informative it is and how it captures the passion and excitement behind the upcoming racing season at Meydan. It also completes the customer experience for all those who wish to attend the Dubai International Racing Carnival and we are pleased with how it also champions horseracing globally.
"We are also always in the process of continually upgrading our value and service offerings to empower our partners and customers, thereby ensuring that they are exposed to global best practices and services that technology can empower us to offer," said Chairman of the Board and CEO of Meydan Mr. Saeed Humaid Al-Tayer.
