Saudi Arabia General Sports Authority announced The King Abdulaziz Horse Championship which will rival the Kentucky Derby in size and attract competitors from the United States, the United Kingdom and Japan.

Last year's Dubai World Cup offered a $10-million prize for its top race, although media reported prizes for the entire event totaled $30 million. The 2018 Pegasus World Cup Invitational in Florida had a $16-million purse.
