Picks and Ponderings: 2018 Dubai World Cup Day

This winter’s Dubai Carnival draws to a close this Saturday with Dubai World Cup day.  Saturday’s card features a full day of world-class racing on dirt and on grass, and horses from all over the globe have flocked to Dubai in recent weeks to settle into the desert and make sure they can bring their best on the big day.

Here at Picks and Ponderings, we delve into two of Saturday’s races at Meydan in detail.  The day’s feature, the Dubai World Cup (G1), attracted an international field of ten older horses to contend for a $10,000,000 purse.  We also, in keeping with our content all winter and spring, discuss the three-year-old points race on the card, the UAE Derby (G2).

Head over to Picks and Ponderings, read my preview of the Dubai World Cup and the UAE Derby, and let me know your thoughts in the comments!
