While the video is short, it’s made a positive impression. Some comments on the post include one user who noted how happy Sheikh Mohammed was, while another wrote: “A leader like him should be celebrated. One happy dancing leader knowing he brings good things to his people.”
The Dubai World Cup, one of the world's richest horse races, has been held annually since 1996. This was the seventh win for Sheikh Mohammed's Godolphin Stables.
