The major influence from South Africa on the Carnival will, as often is the case, come from the yard of Mike de Kock. His twelve strong string includes 2017 Gr1 South African Derby winner Al Sahem, Gr1 winning warrior Sanshaawes and Gr1 winning 2017 Gr2  Zabeel Mile runner-up Noah From Goa.

The list features 132 accepted horses with the intention to ship from 15 countries, including 14 Gr1 winners from many points of the globe.

Several international stars are set to travel to Dubai this winter to compete for a share of the US$10,870,000 prize money across 10 race cards, 61 Thoroughbred races and 4 Group Purebred Arabian races held prior to the Dubai World Cup card on March 31, 2018.

Brett Crawford will represent South Africa with a single entry, the Australian-bred Gr1 Sun Met winner, Whisky Baron.
