Dubai World Cup

On March 31, Monterosso, a 5-year old British racehorse, won the Dubai World Cup, a horse race held annually in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The Dubai World Cup was started in 1996, and is known as the “richest” horse race since it gives out the largest prize money in horse racing (US$10 million). Dubai is famous for many things, one of them being the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. The building goes up over half a mile into the sky! It is 828m (2,716ft) high. The Hollywood movie “Mission Impossible – Ghost Protocol” had a scene of the actor Tom Cruise climbing the Burj Khalifa. Here is a video of the shooting of the scene.
