I think the ratings are pretty accurate going into the race with Curlin in a league of his own but I certainly wouldn't rule our horse out. A race can go anyway and we will be there to win if Curlin doesn't.
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (PRWEB) March 24, 2008
Know as the "World's Richest Race," the Dubai World Cup is hosted in the city of Dubai, United Arab Emirates and takes place at the tony Nad Al Sheba Racecourse.
Who will win the Dubai World Cup?
South African Mike de Kock is hopeful with Aisiatic Boy (8-1), but he has no illusions of the stiff completion. "I think the ratings are pretty accurate going into the race with Curlin in a league of his own but I certainly wouldn't rule our horse out. A race can go anyway and we will be there to win if Curlin doesn't."
In a League of his Own
Without question, Horse of the Year Curlin is the odds on favourite (2-5) to win the Dubai World Cup.
Jess Jackson, founder of Kendall-Jackson Winery and owner of Stonestreet Stables and Curlin's majority owner said that, "The horse's greatest moments and best efforts may still lie ahead."
Trainer Steve Asmussen summed up what he thought of his Preakness Stakes, Jockey Club Gold Cup and Breeders' Cup Classic winner, barely containing his enthusiasm for the 4 year old colt, "He's the best horse in the world. I want others to feel about him the same way I do."
After the Dubai World Cup is completed, Asmussen will shift his attention to Pryo--currently regarded as the number one contender for the 134th Kentucky Derby.
Post positions are traditionally drawn the night before the race at a lavish ceremony held at the luxurious Madinat Theatre in downtown Dubai. Dubai World Cup Results and a list of Dubai World Cup Past Winners are available online at All Horse Racing.
