In the wake of the passing of the Deputy Ruler of Dubai and the Minister of Finance and Industry of the UAE, His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum, a spectacular display was made as a tribute at the Meydan Racecourse at the Dubai World Cup this weekend.

The event concluded with a glistening skyline featuring a drone display, which made up His Highness’ portrait in the sky.

Alongside this, screens showcased a series of photographs of the late Deputy Ruler of Dubai in remembrance of him.

The images of Sheikh Hamdan were complemented by messages which read, “A gentleman, a statesman, the equestrian.”

This noteworthy tribute was an ode to the Deputy Ruler of Dubai’s many triumphs at the Dubai World Cup and overall love for racing. He experienced some profound victories at the Ascot Gold Cup and the Dubai World Cup in 1999 and 2007, respectively.

His Highness passed away at the age of 75 on Wednesday, March 24, 2021. The news was announced by his brother, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and the Ruler of Dubai.
