Nominated for the Tattersalls Gpld Cup
UPDATE: For those who don't know (he was assumed to be alive given the information in Wikipedia and other sources), he died in 2012. After contacting McMahon Thoroghbreds of Saratoga this morning, I have updated the date portion on Wikipedia and will be adding more information later and have sent word to American Classic Pedigrees as well.
Tapeta runs essentially the same wet or dry. IF it were the surface
Baffert: Dubai World Cup favourite Arrogate is the dirt version of Frankel https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2017/mar/22/dubai-world-cup-favourite-arrogate-dirt-version-of-frankel-bob-baffert DWC Preview https://www.racing.com/news/2017-03-23/dubai-world-cup-preview
Fav Zulu finally wins a graded stakes in the Skip Away Saturday @ GP :/ 1sters Goldwood and Lovin Empire to upset Game Factor from their favorable inside posts to complete the late DD : if 'with 2 you get Egg Roll' :) Unzip Me's debuting 1st foal for Mott/Crastus??? is a welcome addition

Ihave read that it might be raining on Saturday. I thought that this was a polytrack type surface. If anything,that would be the only so called Elephant in the room. Personally i think this guy can run on rocks or broken glass,but he is not asked to. The synthetic surface for him or anyone else is always a question mark,until they answer it.
In the 24 years that Mike Smith's been going to Dubai he's never won a race there. I'd say he's overdue! http://awaan.ae/video/26801943/The-Winning-Line:-23-03-2017
Trainer Anthony Dutrow announces that Mo Town has been confirmed for the Wood Memorial. Javier Castellano will ride.
This horse needs to be retired. The last time he won a race was on September 13, 2014.
  • ILuvTurfRacing · @anthonyd73648, Owner Frank Gillespie has already made a major change for The Grey Gatsby. He's no longer in the yard of trainer Kevin Ryan. He's now based in Ireland being trained by one of Ireland's all-time great trainers, Dermot Weld. That could make a huge difference for him in 2017, IMO. · 5 hours ago
Very sad to see it will be redeveloped.
I'LL take Lani at 80 to 1 as well as Keen Ice at 30 to 1 worth a small wager in case the BIG two take each other out of the race
The whole card this day is VERY VERY impressive! This is a Breeders cup like card and some very very good prices on great horses... Second Summer, Lancaster Bomber, Washington DC, Deauville, Seventh Heaven. Looks like I will be up early Saturday.... Wow Kudos to Dubai for putting this card together for us handicappers.
Anyone playing the other undercard races, are they worth playing?

  • kingoftheworld · "North America" in the Godolphin Mile, he's the best bet of the entire card, even more than "Arrogate" in the DWC. He's going to blitz the field. :-) · 11 hours ago
Holy Crap! Get this TVG is offering 5-1 on Arrogate! Seriously...you gotta be kidding me! No joke. I'm taking that!!~ But I'm also looking out for the Runner,too.
