Dubai: Freddy Head, the first man ever to win Breeders' Cup races
both as a jockey and trainer, says he is hoping to realise an ambition
when two of his stable stars take their chances at the Dubai
International Racing Carnival.
The good-humoured Frenchman has three horses based in Dubai, with
Marinous and Rajsaman being prepared for a shot at the Dubai World Cup
"You need to have the right horse to send over to Dubai and I'm
hoping that they are Marinous and Rajsaman," said Head when he visited
the Emirates to oversee their preparations.
"They've settled in well over here and I believe that both tracks,
the Tapeta or the turf, will suit them. They travel well and tough
horses don't mind the change of conditions.
