  • The Dubai World Cup is tomorrow? Wow, I'm really not into it this year :/ I need to be sparked before tomorrow.

    Weather has been less than perfect in Dubai
  • That may cut into the attendance, or at least into attendance at the rooftop snack bar there. Funny, you don't think of rain in connection with the Arabian Desert region, although maybe the Persian Gulf has an influence on the climate in Dubai.

    Forecast are saying Saturday weather will be good.
    It has been quite variable over the past few days.

    He looks get. This uae is pretty exciting. Some really nice horses from many different places.
    I saw that you may be feeling a little less enthusiasm for this year's carnival. If you do catch a couple of races,I think you'll be well rewarded. The Europeans have come very strong, with some very,very nice stock. Lots of Americans too. Every race looks fabulous.

    I agree tincup! Strong contingents from U.S. and Euros! I am not getting up that early though. Haha!
  • Well that just stinks. In late and out early tomorrow...there goes my Dubai day...
    Oh well, I'll still try to get a couple of plays in.

    I won't get to watch any of the races live --- but I have it set up to record. I will be at an allstar cheerleading competition with two of my granddaughters. I am so looking forward to seeing Arrogate run --- hope I can make myself stay off the forum thread until I watch the races!
    Edit: I'm also looking forward to seeing what, if any, antics happen with Lani --- he's the wild card in any deck, but for some strange reason, I really get a kick out of him Besides, he's a Tapit --- and I love Tapit!

    Second Summer upsets the Godolphin Mile to start the day! He beat Ross and Sharp Azteca on a muddy, sealed track.

    Reda takes the Kahayla Classic for Arabians!

    Vazirabad repeats in the Gold Cup!!! Beautiful Romance was second, Sheikzayedroad was third.

    Epicharis just gets beat by a rallying Thunder Snow! Master Plan third.
  • That UAE Derby sure had an exciting stretch drive between Thunder Snow and Epicharis. I really thought Thunder Snow was beaten about a 1/16th out, but he fought back to get his nose down on the wire.
  • Yea, Biscuit!

    A YEA from me also ...
  • Holy CRAP Mind Your Biscuits was impressive! He must have been 6+ wide the entire race and just stormed home to win by 3 lengths. I don't think his jockey ever went to the whip either.

    WOW! What a horse!

    That was a race to get the heart pounding.

    First time off Lasix
    First time out of the States
    Under the lights
    International field of class
    Pinched at the start
    Dirt in his face
    Just enough stick to get him focused
    Toyed with them at the end

    "I'm just going to ride him like Zenyatta."

    Ok, I just went over the moon with excitement seeing one of the greatest racehorses of my time win the World Cup. Every time I see Arrogate my jaw just drops over his built. Every inch of his body screams power.

    So many times we talk about horses being unfortunate to be born in the same year as another champion (i.e. Sham / Secretariat ), well it's unfortunate that California Chrome was born in the same decade of Arrogate! CC had hardly anytime to bask in the public glory before being upstaged by Arrogate in money won, overwhelming victories, and anticipation of what is to come.

    Mikey- "Missed the break and I thought, you know? It's fine. i'm just gonna ride him like Zenyatta."

    I was with Bob when he missed the break so badly. I thought he would definitely show and give it his all, but I did NOT think he'd win, and particularly not so convincingly. Very rarely am I so happy to be so mistaken.
  • Terrific race.
  • Holy mother of god. That was one of the greatest performances I think I've ever seen.
