Racing certs for Emirates SkyCargo

Emirates SkyCargo has transported some of the world’s top racehorses to its Middle East hub for the Dubai World Cup event, which will take place on March 25 at the Meydan racecourse. 
Champion thoroughbred horses have been arriving at the Dubai World Central hub on Emirates SkyCargo freighters over the last few weeks.
One of the most recent arrivals was Arrogate, currently the world’s highest rated racehorse. Arrogate won the Pegasus World Cup earlier this year in Florida and is one of the prime contenders for the $10m Dubai World Cup prize.
Arrogate was joined by stable companion Hoppertunity, another contender for the Dubai World Cup, for the journey from US to Dubai.
The carrier worked with the international equine transport specialist Janah Management Co, which also provided grooms to accompany the horses on their travels. 
Stallwalkin Dude and Imperial Hint, also part of the US contingent at the Dubai World Cup night races, arrived on Emirates freighters at the Dubai World Central, where the carrier’s freight fleet is based.
Emirates  also operated a special charter flight from Japan to transport some of the leading contenders for the top prize on race night. Apollo Kentucky, Awardee and Gold Dream were among the horses that arrived last week. 
Dubai World Central airport includes dedicated areas for handling and also airside ramps for horses. The carrier provides custom designed horse stalls and trained and experienced expert personnel to ensure proper handling and welfare of the horses.
Inside the cargo hold of the aircraft, the temperature is set to ensure maximum comfort and minimum stress for the horses. Premium horses can also travel with professional grooms and certified veterinarians.
