Richard's Kid is Dubai-bound after winning the $150,000 San Antonio Handicap (gr. II) at Santa Anita Feb. 7 in his first start for new owner Sheikh Rashid bin Mohammed al Maktoum's Zabeel Racing International.

Ugh. They totally and absolutely just laid-down for him down the stretch. Auto bet against next time.
Garrett Gomez was pretty amazing flying up the rail to grab the win at the very last second. Nice race for Richard's Kid to head to Dubai with.
