Sheikh Mohammed is a relentless visionary who has driven the advancement of Dubai from middle-east backwater to a centre of global commerce, sport and tourism. Here is the extraordinary story of the Sheikh's vision for transforming his beloved horse, Dubai Millennium, into a world-beater and winner of the Dubai World Cup (the world's richest race) in the year 2000; of how the horse shattered a hind leg soon after his famous desert victory and was retired to stud; and, of how Dubai Millennium succumbed to the mysterious disease known as grass sickness. Sheikh Mohammed's breathtaking attempt to acquire all of his horse's foals before they ran, the race to find the cause of the vicious disease, and the ultimate outcome of the breeding experiment are all part of the compelling story of Dubai Millennium.
