Older Comments about the 2012 Al Maktoum Challenge - Rd. 1 (G3)...

Gearing up for a super field facing off in this morning's Maktoum Challenge. Master of Hounds, Musir, Mendip, Xin Xu Lin, etc ...
This looks like an awfully tough race just to be the 1st Round of the Al Maktoum Challenge to me. The likes of Musir, Master of Hounds, Xin Xu Lin, Dance and Dance, Fanunlater, and my personal favorite tapeta surface horse, Mendip!! If the field is already this deep for Rd. 1, I can't wait until we get to Rd. 3 of the Al Maktoum Challenge to see who all shows up for that race? Being that it's considered the main prep race at the Dubai Carnival for the Dubai World Cup every year. A lot of quality horses in this field, but I will not bet against Mendip if he's running on the tapeta main track? He's raced 5 times in his career on the tapeta at Meydan, and he's 5-4-0-1. His only loss was his 3rd place finish behind Musir and Raihana in the 2010 UAE Derby. But Dettori had to swing out wide with Mendip in that race and lost considerable ground when Timely Jazz broke down in front of Mendip. I think it cost him 2nd place, at a minimum. I think Mendip's been the best strictly tapeta surface horse I've seen in the first seasons that the Carnival has moved from Nad Al Sheba to Meydan. If the powers that be at Godolphin would ever wake up and smell the coffee, and give Mendip a shot to run in the Dubai World Cup, I really believe he'd have a huge chance to win the race for them.

  • ILuvTurfRacing · @crc1858, If your comment is directed at me, let just say that I don't have any idea who "Medlocke" is, other than to say that I see a lot of his duplicates on this web-site myself. I just joined this site not even a month ago because I also enjoy thoroughbred racing. I don't know who her or she is, and I don't really appreciate you trying to say that it's me. This is an open web-site for all, and I've bothered no one and minded my business for the month I've been on Horseracingnation. com. As for being a top contributor, I care less about being a top anything. What are you, in kindergarten?? · 1046 days ago
