Prince for a Prince – Buick was congratulated after the race by Dubai's Crown Prince, who owns Prince Bishop.
The gold cup – The Dubai World Cup has become a firm fixture on the racing calender. The winner collects a cool $10 million. Second place California Chrome, the favorite in the run up to the race, will collect $2 million.
Party time – The race has also become a firm fixture on Dubai's notoriously glitzy social scene.
A day at the races – The day wasn't all about the World Cup. A full day of racing was to be had. The earlier Gold Cup was won by Brown Panther.
Owen scores – Brown Panther is owned by former England, Liverpool, Real Madrid and Manchester United striker Micheal Owen, one of the many celebrities at the race.
