XXI Dubai World Cup


The world is getting ready for the richest horse race in the world. The Dubai World Cup is about to begin. All the contenders are beginning their journeys to this land located in the United Arab Emirates. This includes all the American horses.

A total of 19 American horses are on their way to Dubai to compete during the 11th Dubai World Cup. This is America's largest contingent in Dubai World Cup history. This race purse money is $21.250 000 dollars, $6 millions more than last year.

The world's richest race, sponsored by Emirates is posted for March 25th at Nad Al Sheba Racecourse and the horses are expected to start training next Saturday.

Last year, 14 U.S.-based horses competed at the horse- and camel-racing complex in the middle of the dunes on Dubai's outskirts. Horses training in the U.S. have won five of the 10 World Cups, including Roses in May's victory last year.

Between the horses racing in the Dubai World Cup there is "Brass Hat" trained by William 'Buff' Bradley and winner of his last three starts, including the Donn Handicap. Also Wilko, winner of the 2004 Bessemer Trust Breeders' Cup Juvenile who's trainer is Jeremy Noseda, Super Frolic, trained by Vladimir Cerin, Todd Pletcher's Magna Graduate, and Choctaw Nation, who was third in this race a year ago.
