DUBAI World Cup winner Moves Stables

After over thirty years of success, Zabeel Stables is embarking on a new chapter at Meydan, bidding farewell to its longstanding home. Situated against the backdrop of Dubai's iconic skyline, Zabeel Stables offered a tranquil sanctuary away from the city's hustle and bustle, providing a truly unique experience for all who walked through its gates.

Trainer Bhupat Seemar, who spent two decades at Zabeel, looks back fondly on the memories made within its walls. "Leaving Zabeel with a Dubai World Cup victory and both the trainers' and jockeys' championships was a fitting culmination," shared Seemar, expressing gratitude to the Dubai Racing Club for facilitating a smooth transition to Meydan.

The move to Meydan promises to usher in a new era of excellence for Zabeel Stables, with Seemar praising the state-of-the-art facilities and amenities offered at the new location. As construction progresses to recreate the comforts of Zabeel, Seemar eagerly anticipates the unveiling of the new facilities, singling out the Green Stable as an ideal home for their extensive roster of horses.

Seemar's recent triumphs, including a Group 1 double at the Dubai World Cup, have garnered international acclaim. Yet, despite his remarkable success, Seemar remains humble, acknowledging the rarity of such achievements. "Waking up as the World Cup-winning trainer still feels surreal," admits Seemar, reflecting on the magnitude of his accomplishments.

As preparations for the upcoming season commence, Seemar is already immersed in the task of strengthening his stable with new bloodstock acquisitions. With a packed itinerary ahead, including visits to horse sales in the UK, France, USA, and Ireland, Seemar is determined to uphold the esteemed legacy of Zabeel Stables in its new chapter at Meydan.

As Zabeel bids adieu to its cherished home, it does so with gratitude for the memories created and anticipation for the exciting journey that awaits at Meydan. With Seemar at the helm, the legacy of Zabeel is poised to endure, leaving an indelible mark on the world of horse racing for generations to come.
