Gitano Hernando Targets Dubai World Cup

Gitano Hernando, who finished sixth as the favorite in the 2010 Dubai World Cup (UAE-I) n the United Arab Emirates, has arrived in Dubai from England to be prepared for the 2011 renewal of the 1 1/4–mile race at Meydan race course.


According to a release from Team Valor International, which owns the 5-year-old son of Hernando in partnership with Gary Barber, British-based trainer Marco Botti has outlined a schedule of three races for Gitano Hernando in Dubai. He has also secured the services of Hong Kong-based jockey Weichong Marwing to ride the horse.


“We wanted a top-class international rider that we had faith in and with whom we had enjoyed some good fortune in the past,” Team Valor CEO Barry Irwin said. “Weichong has always been a favorite of the stable, and he has enjoyed considerable success for us in Hong Kong, Dubai, and South Africa. When we put Weichong up, we do so with a feeling of confidence.”


Gitano Hernando will prep for the March 26 World Cup by first competing in two legs of the Maktoum Challenge that are part of Dubai’s Racing Carnival.
