Going to Dubai?
Most American racing fan's don't even know of this horse. Unless it's a die hard fan that keeps up with racing world wide, as I myself do. Espoir City is a phenomenal colt. Eat's up conventional dirt surfaces. 8-6-1-0 lifetime. With his six win's having come in a row. Also, five of those six win's being G1 win's. He also has a G3 win as well. His only out of money finish was the 2009 G1 February Stakes. Where Espoir City finished 4th. But has since come back to destroy the field, and win the 2010 running of the February Stakes. He's also the winner of the 2009 Japan Cup (Dirt). This colt has real front end speed, and stamina to match. He's pretty much ran away with every race on dirt I've seen the replays of. One of the horses he trounced in the 09' Japan Cup (Dirt) was America's Tizway. This colt is a real talent. And if he does indeed come to America for the Breeders Cup Classic? He could change the whole dimensions of the race. He'll certainly guarantee a strong pace. Which would be very beneficial to Zenyatta's late closing efforts. Provided Mike Smith doesn't wait too late to try and run Espoir City down. But I really believe he'll be a difficult beat for dirt horses like Blame, Quality Road, and Lookin At Lucky. JMO.
