DUBAI WORLD CUP-winning owner Sheikh Hamdan said on Sunday he had donated the $6 million prize-money to charity.
The son of Godolphin founder Sheikh Mohammed saw his colours carried to victory in the world’s richest race by 14-1 shot Prince Bishop at Meydan on Saturday.
He tweeted: “I am pleased to announce that I have donated the Dubai World Cup prize of 6 million dollars to the Dubai Autism Centre.
“I am optimistic for what the Dubai Autism Centre will achieve socially and medically for children with autism.”
On its website, the Dubai Autism Centre is described as “the largest, most innovative and comprehensive nonprofit organization in the United Arab Emirates serving children with Autism Spectrum Disorders”.
