@driveon, I think you're right about that if both of them actually run in the G1 Golden Shaheen? The problem is, Black Caviar and Sepoy have gone out of their way to avoid racing each other in Australia, and I don't really understand why they have since they're the arguably the 2 best sprinters anywhere in the world right now. It's about a 99.9% certainty since he's owned by Sheikh Mohammed that Sepoy will be in Dubai, and it looks as if they're targeting the G1 Golden Shaheen with him. But if Black Caviar does indeed make the trek from Australia to Dubai in March? It won't surprise me at all if they avoid a showdown with Sepoy on a synthetic surface and go after the Al Quoz Sprint at 5f on turf. Since the Al Quoz Sprint has now been upgraded from G2 to G1 status. TJMO.
If both Aussie machines Black Caviar and Sepoy show up for the Golden Shaheen, everyone else is racing for third.
