  • Sullivan · Think he would've gotten it without the blinkers? · 298 days ago ·
  • Floridaf · Perhaps. It's certainly possible that he would have found another gear if he had seen Boat Trip coming. · 298 days ago ·
In a dazzling display of talent and ability, the 2011 Kentucky Derby winner ran away with the world's richest race in style.Read More

  • nayrod64 · what a race and performance. Nothing wrong with this horse and soundness. Too bad he's never coming back to USA. · 379 days ago ·
  • icyhotboo · I'm curious as to why they would keep him on after the "alleged bad ride." Maybe because it wasn't bad at all? · 379 days ago ·
It seems to be a clear double standard. The message would seem to be: There is no need for American horses to prove themselves by traveling outside of our cozy borders, while conversely, international horses can only truly prove themselves by running in the United States. Am I wrong, American race f...Read More

  • Ann Maree · How long has it been since American horses were very successful in Dubai? Was it before they switched from dirt to synthetic? · 438 days ago ·
  • dubairacenight · Kinsale King was the last winner for the US, in 2010, but numbers have been down for overall US shippers. As for Lynne's remark, I have never seen better on-track conditions anywhere in the world for stabled horses as those that exist in the UAE. They put US backsides to shame. · 438 days ago ·
2013 has a strong team of Americans leaving the comfort of home for glory in distant lands. Lets take a look at some of the early nominations to this year's Carnival.Read More

  • RichardGross · My point: It's settling in after the travel and the place more than the surface. By the time Curlin won in a hand ride (yes, on real dirt), he felt like it was home. having been there since late January (and winning the Jaguar for practice). Well Armed (third in that race) wins the next year on a less-than-perfect day with an amazing trip and a first-time DWC rider. Hey, guess where Gloria de Campeao finished? Neither he nor Lizard's Desire returned in 2011 when the Japanese take win and place. But show? Why do I think this is so obvious? Because it is. · 439 days ago ·

ROCKET MAN was denied back-to-back wins in the Golden Shaheen by the Kieren Fallon-partnered Krypton Factor. Last year's winner disputed the lead withearly pacesetter Giant Ryan and was clear of rivals turning for home. But the pace had been strong and as Rocket Man's boosters began to fade Krypton ...Read More
Hello to all from Dubai. Normally, we are quick to put together post-race thoughts on the full gamut of activity from the 2012 Dubai World Cup, but given the emotionally charged nature of the day, both powerful and challenging, we thought it best to let our thoughts settle for some time. We do not v...Read More
Am I excited about the Dubai World Cup card? Let me answer it this way ... The eight big races carry a combined purse of $27 million. I say this with my pinkie finger devilishly pointing to the corner of mouth. While the really big money is not available to us, the great card does provide many inter...Read More

There were few surprises in the draw. MARITIMER, Canada’s juvenile champion, did draw in to the main body of the UAE Derby field after Boby Di Job was not entered. Defending Dubai Golden Shaheen champion Rocket Man drew the rail in his attempt to become the first repeat winner of the race since Call...Read More
They say perfection is unattainable, and as a practicing golf instructor, I’m inclined to agree, but maybe even if this is the sad reality for the human race, we can still strive to find perfection within our world. Perhaps a glimpse of our unattainable will be in store for us tonight when Black Cav...Read More

  • New York Vinnie · If you think that ten races is ignorant then just look at the list by Bloodhorse. As far as I can gather there is just one horse, #94 Artful (1902) that raced less than ten races. All other horses raced at least ten races. · 781 days ago ·
  • RuffianQueenOfRacing · Hey, im just trying to get my head around you saying Landaluce was great, and then you said no horse that races in under 10 races is great. Yeah she died young, but doesnt mean she could not have raced more, if she was so great, i mean im just going off what are saying sooo · 781 days ago ·
Australian trainer John Sadler, who spent three seasons in Dubai, glowed about the conditions that visiting horses face when coming to the desert.
