Dubai's mobile cannon for the holy month of Ramadan made a one-day appearance at the emirate's prestigious horse race, March 25.

In the international event's 27th edition, 126 horses from 12 countries are competing for a total prize pool of $30.5 million.

Maj Abdullah Tarish Al Amimi, commander of the Dubai Police Ramadan Cannons, said they had adjusted the cannon's route so it could make a stop at the Dubai World Cup for horses, which is being held at Meydan Racecourse.

The mobile cannon was showcased at the event only for one day, allowing tournament participants and visitors to experience the cultural heritage, customs, and traditions of the UAE during the holy month, he added.

The cannon will be relocated to the Dubai Trade Centre the following day and will continue its scheduled movements across various locations within Dubai. Meanwhile, the 'Jumeirah stationary cannon' will be positioned at the Atlantis Hotel.
