Dubai Racing Club chief executive Frank Gabriel announced Meydan Racecourse has installed its new Tapeta track (covering the old 1750m all-weather track & positioned inside the main turf track) as it progresses towards both Meydan's official opening on January 28 & the running of the flagship 2010 Gr1 Dubai World Cup on Tapeta for the 1st time on March 27. A Tapeta training track was installed at Meydan last March & Gabriel noted: "The Tapeta surface has proven to be safe & reliable & has shown outstanding durability in this climate. We look forward to a brand new era of racing at the upcoming 2010 Dubai International Racing Carnival & the Dubai World Cup with this new all-weather surface course."
