Picks and Ponderings: UAE Derby Preview

This Saturday is one of my favourite days of the entire racing year: Dubai World Cup day.

The posts for the Grade I events will not be drawn until later in the week, but I have an introduction to a few horses to watch this week: big American shippers in the World Cup, as well as quite a few runners throughout the day who have connections to Arlington Park.  Furthermore, the UAE Derby (GII – UAE) has already been drawn.  It is the one race outside of North American for which Kentucky Derby points are at stake, and it drew an intriguing field of seven.  I love my top selection there, and she may well be a bit of a price, to boot.

Part two, later this week, will cover all of the Grade I Thoroughbred races 0n Dubai World Cup day.

Head on over to Picks and Ponderings, read my preview of the UAE Derby, and get ready for a great day of racing in Dubai!
