Eye-watering amounts of money are on offer in Saturday’s Saudi Cup as the brand new horse race takes the crown as the sport’s richest event.

The race is offering an incredible $20 million prize purse — with a staggering $10 million going to the team behind the winning horse.

It will overtake the Dubai World Cup — with a purse of $12 million in 2019 — as racing’s most lucrative prize as the kingdom continues its big-money push onto the global sporting stage.

“This is headline-grabbing stuff and it’s more about making a statement about Saudi Arabia to announce itself to the racing world and create something that’s a statement of intent,” said Alastair Donald, of global race promoter the International Racing Bureau.

The nine-furlong dirt race will be contested at the King Abdulaziz racetrack in the country’s capital and comes after a number of recent sporting spectacles in the region.
