Aaron Gryder, winner of the last ever World Cup at Nad Al Sheba in 2009
with Well Armed, was in good form at Meydan Racecourse March 25 when
discussing this year’s card. His mount in the $10 million Dubai
Emirates World Cup (UAE-I) is Amor de Pobre
, trained by Saudi
Arabia-based American Jerry Barton. The 5-year-old gelded son of Stuka
looks certain to start as a longshot, but Gryder is clearly looking
forward to it and said his mount should not be discounted.
