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.
