Entries for Dubai World Cup and Undercard

New, 8 comments

The entries are set for this Saturday's Dubai Carnival of Racing, featuring the $10 million Dubai World Cup.  The World Cup drew a field of 14, including Gio Ponti, Vision d'Etat (FR), Red Desire (JPN), Furthest Land, Twice Over (GB), and Richard's Kid.  And while this year's race doesn't have the big name attraction, like a Curlin, a fairly deep and even field will enter the starting gate on Saturday.

DRF Past Performances are not yet available but you can access Brisnet's PPs for each race, although they don't have a Timeform or Racing Post Rating.  The Racing Post (UK) also has an assortment of card options.

This year's Carnival will feature a race for turf sprinters for the first time, headlined by the 2009 Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint winner, California Flag, and jockey Joe Talamo.  In the past, American horses have dominated the dirt sprint events in Dubai and I would expect that trend to continue on the grass.

The American trained Take the Points, The Usual Q.T., and Courageous Cat are all entered in the Dubai Duty Free, the 1 1/8 mile turf event, but the Americans are difficult to find in this year's Sheema Classic, the 1 1/2 mile turf race.  Presious Passion is the lone American contender and it's questionable as to whether his running style will prove successful against a deep field of European turf horses.  Still, it's hard not to pull for this seven year old, isn't it? 

Entries for the all the graded races can be found below the jump.
