In the middle of the desert a carpet of lush green grass grows on the world's most luxurious racecourse. Overlooking the course is a 1.6 kilometer (1 mile) long land-scraper that boasts six star luxury for both man and horse. The sheer scale of this project is awe-inspiring. Its imaginative design puts Meydan into a league of its own. And while Meydan's construction teams face extreme challenges to meet a seemingly impossible deadline, event staff race to ensure that the grand opening of Meydan for the Dubai World Cup will be as glamorous and spectacular as the venue itself.
