2012 Dubai World Cup And Florida Derby Day

The world's richest horse race, the $10 million Dubai World Cup, will take place this morning a half a world away at Meydan Racecourse. Later in the day, two of the top contenders for the 2012 Kentucky Derby, Union Rags and El Padrino, will face off in the $1 million Florida Derby at Gulfstream Park.

The World Cup and Florida Derby aren't the only great races on the schedule. Santa Anita will feature the G1-Santa Anita Oaks, while Gulfstream will offer five graded stakes races in addition to the Florida Derby (Gulfstream Oaks, Appleton, Orchid, Rampart, and Skipaway). The Fair Grounds will prepare for Sunday's Louisiana Derby with Saturday's running of the G2-Fair Grounds Oaks.
