Older Comments about the 2011 Dubai World Cup (G1)...

On pure class, I believe the Japanese filly, Buena Vista, has the best chance of the horses that have shipped into Dubai for just this one race. Never worse than 3rd in her career, Buena Vista is 14-6-6-2 lifetime. She really should be 14-7-5-2 if not for that ridiculous D.Q. of her win in the G1 Japan Cup. Buena Vista posted the fastest work of all the horses this week at Meydan. She ran the final furlong of a 6f work in 10.27 seconds, and by all accounts was the most visually impressive horse on the racetrack. I also believe Mike De Kock to have a very strong hand in the race with Musir and Golden Sword. Musir won last year's UAE Derby, and finished 2nd to Twice Over in Rd. 3 of the Al Maktoum Challenge. Musir has never finished worse than 2nd on Meydan's tapeta surface in 2 different carnivals now. Golden Sword also really thrived on the tapeta at this year's carnival Running 3 times. Winning 2 of them wit 1 place. Golden Sword set the Meydan tapeta racetrack record for the fastest 1-1/4 ever in this year's Personal Banking Handicap. I think both of De Kock's horses will be great across the board bet's in the race. JMO.
  • footlick · I loved the comment about Buena Vista about her very unfeminine presence. Reminds me of what they always said about Allez France. I love Buena Vista's chances here. · 1435 days ago
What a joke. That Bob Baffert is sending Game on Dude to this year's Dubai World Cup. LOL. Frankly, he shouldn't have even got to keep his Santa Anita Handicap win. Now he's going to be thrown into a race that he'll be beaten by a street. By the time Baffert sees the quality of competition he's throwing this colt in the ring against at Meydan, they'll be calling this horse "Dream on Dude" instead of Game on Dude.
England's RacingPost.com web-site today ran a story that Buena Vista, the Japanese super-filly who won this year's Japan Cup and was then D.Q.'d to 2nd place, along with a 2nd place finish behind Dar Re Mi in the 2010 Sheema Classic, will by-pass another shot at winning the 2011 Sheema Classic to instead race in this year's Dubai World Cup. At 12f to 2 miles on the turf, there's no question about the fact that Buena Vista is one of, if not the best turf horse in the world right now, IMO. But she has no experience at all on any kind of synthetic surface in her career. Coupled with the fact that the Sheema Classic is raced over 1-1/2 and the Dubai World Cup over 1-1/4. At 10f on synthetics, I think it's possible that Buena Vista could get out-paced, and not run as well in the Dubai World Cup as she would in the Sheema Classic. TJMO.
The following horses are listed on England's RacingPost.com as potential starters in the 2011 Dubai World Cup. The odd's for each horse appear as set by European bookmakers: 1. Twice Over 4-1 2. Snow Fairy 9-2 3. Gio Ponti 7-1 4. Bold Silvano 10-1 5. Gitano Hernando 12-1 6. Musir 12-1 7. Mendip 12-1 8. Al Shemali 20-1 9. Allybar 20-1 10. Belle Walting 20-1 11. Dangerous Midge 20-1 12. Debussy 20-1 13. Crowded House 25-1 14. Espoir City 25-1 15. Red Desire 25-1 16. Transcend 25-1 17. Raihana 33-1 18. Wigmore Hall 33-1 19. Redding Colliery 50-1 20. Mr. Brock 66-1. NOTE: It was also just announced on RacingPost.com today that Aidan O'Brien will be sending Cape Blanco to represent Ballydoyle in the Dubai World Cup, and Joshua Tree to represent them in the Sheema Classic. No odd's appear as of yet for either horse.
