What the Nation is saying about Vercingetorix...

The three Grade I Arlington Million nominees in the Group I Prince of Wales’s Wednesday afternoon at Royal Ascot finished first, second and fourth to dominate the star-studded field. Sir Andrew Lloyed Webber’s The Fugue showed a marked return to form with an impressive 1¾-length victory over fellow ...Read More
In this first edition of Road to the Million, we will delve into the main players – the big shooters, if you will – who look to possibly take aim on Arlington International Racecourse’s premier event, as well as its three supporting events.

Really glad that Mike De Kock has decided to bring Vercingetorix to Great Britain to race this summer. I think this horse can and will be very competitive racing in Europe. He simply had the misfortune of running into an absolute buzz saw on world cup night, losing to a horse that ran arguably the most impressive race of any horse in any of the major G1 races at Meydan in Just A Way. But even with Just A Way clearly turning in a career best in the Duty Free, Vercingetorix still managed a highly creditable & respectable 2nd place finish over some of the world's top shelf horses at that distance. Mike De Kock currently had Vercigetorix pre-entered along with Soft Falling Rain in both the G1 Lockinge Stakes at Newbury in May and G1 Queen Anne Stakes at Ascot in June. Vercingetorix is pre-entered in the G1 Prince of Wales's Stakes at the Ascot royal meeting in June, also.
Should not be overlooked in his very credible 2nd place run to Just A Way. He now has the second fastest 9 furlongs recorded at Meydan. May have been the winner in literally any other year.
  • ILuvTurfRacing · @ajump08, I've been a big fan of this horse from the first time I saw him race in South Africa, and though he just simply ran into a buzz saw today in Just A Way, he definitely proved he's up to racing against this class of horses, IMO. Would very much like to see Mike De Kock and his owner Sheikh Mohammed Bin Khalifa Al Maktoum consider bringing Vercingetorix to Europe this season for any of their top G1 races at 10f, I.E., Prince of Wales's Stakes, Coral-Eclipse, Juddmonte International, Champion Stakes, etc...I think he would be up to the challenge, IMO. · 102 days ago ·
  • Euro Trash · @ILuvTurfRacing, I would think he might be planning that as he will probably be bringing at least Shea Shea and Soft Falling Rain. · 102 days ago ·
Dubai Word Cup evening has arrived. Handicapping the world’s richest card in racing can be daunting a task, especially for us nearly half a world away, but I’m willing to take a shot with a few (hopefully) very live long shots. Read More

Love this horse!! One of my favorite horses racing at this year's Dubai Carnival. Vercingetorix is a legitimate international G1 level horse. I personally believe he'll win the G1 Dubai Duty Free on world cup night also and leave Dubai with his unbeaten record still in tact with 2 more G1 wins to add to his resume'. If that happens, I would expect to see him at Sha Tin in April for a shot at the G1 Audemars Piguet QE II Cup, and depending on how he fares in Hong Kong possibly even a trip to Kranji in May for the G1 Singapore Airlines International Cup, IMO.

  • ILuvTurfRacing · @BrianZipse, me thinks Long John's stablemate Ihtimal might have something to say about that if they decide to let her take on the boys in the UAE Derby on world cup night. She was equally impressive in her UAE Oaks win at 9-1/2f as Long John was in his UAE 2000 Guineas win at a mile, and lest we forget the UAE Derby is ran over 9-1/2f. Given that Ihtimal is proven at that distance now and it still remains to be seen if Long John can get the extra 1-1/2f, I would personally favor Ihtimal over Long John in the Derby.

Vercingetorix was getting a bit tired in the final 100 meters, but he had enough left in the tank to hold on for his 1st ever win at Meydan and keep his unbeaten record in tact. Very solid performance from a horse who last raced back on June 1st when he won the G1 Daily News 2000 at Greyville in South Africa. If he continues to perform well in Dubai I would expect to see Vercingetorix as one of Mike De Kock's G1 Dubai Duty Free entries on world cup night, IMO.
This is a horse I'm anxious to see race at Meydan on Thursday!! Unbeaten in 4 career starts to date in South Africa, including wins in the G2 Korea Racing Authority Guineas and the G1 Daily News 2000. He runs in the 3rd race at Meydan on Thursday against the likes of Gabrial, Gale Force Ten, Daddy Long Legs, and stablemates Mickdaam & El Estruendoso.
