Richest Day in Racing Attracts Classy Contenders to Dubai

The Americans are coming! The Americans are coming! To Dubai for the 12th running of the world’s richest horse race – the Dubai World Cup worth $6 million American.

Horses from the Americas or those thoroughbreds bred in foreign lands that run in the United States are being lured across the Atlantic by the richest day in horse racing that exceeds $21 million for a half-dozen Grade 1 events on March 31.
Several arrived early like Premium Tap, who won the 1.5-mile Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques Cup, a quarter-mile shorter than the World Cup. The 5-year-old son of Pleasant Tap captured Saudi Arabia’s premier race by 2.75 lengths on March 16.

“We were worried about whether his journey over from America may have unsettled him as he was delayed for two days,” said Frank McGovern, general manager for new owners Saudi King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz and his sons. “But he showed what a good horse he is, and we won’t be scared of taking on Discreet Cat and Invasor.” read article in full visit Horse Racing News at The Betting Directory.
