Picks and Ponderings: 2016 UAE Oaks Preview

This Thursday’s card at Meydan features the only Oaks points race away from North America: the UAE Oaks.

The race features a rising star in Polar River.  The Doug Watson trainee has been the queen of the three-year-olds in Dubai, and there has been talk that she will come stateside later this year.  Though only two others plan to line up to face her, there is a particularly intriguing candidate in Vale Dori, an Argentine Group I winner who makes her first Carnival start for the Mike de Kock barn.

Head on over to Picks and Ponderings, read my preview of the UAE Oaks, and let me know what you think in the comments!
