    Default Dubai World Cup - Sat Mar 26th

    The races thus far on today's largest day of racing have been excellent. For those looking for the racing on tv both TVG and HRTV are broadcasting live. On the web you can watch it live and free at: DRF's Meydan page

    The American shippers have done so-so thus far. I Want Revenge didn't like the surface in his race but Euroears for Baffert with Mike Smith up almost took $2 million Dubai Golden Shaheen.

    The $10M Dubai World Cup entries here (pdf) with Nick Zito trainee Fly Down and Julien Leparoux up looks very good. As does Gio Ponti for Christopher Clement and with Ramon Dominguez up.

    ETA: Gio Ponti might get scratched - possible insect bite giving a reaction!

    Godolphin winning a lot of their own money back. Rewilding seems to have matured into a very nice animal, will be interesting to see him contest the big 10f and 12f WFA G1s this year. Could be a nice ante psot bet for the Arc.

    Now THAT's a horse race.

    1-2 for Japan in one of the best fields I've seen gathered in a long time.

    Lovely win for Victoire Pisa and the Japanese connections. Thrilling and emotional, too!

    That has to be one of the most amazing moves I've seen in racing. Demuro takes VP from dead last to sitting right off the leader in about 1/2f going down the back straight. Reminds me of a move Secretariat made in the Preakness.

    The win in the big race this evening puts Victoire Pisa's career earnings to $12,896,372. So there's a good chance by the end of the year with a couple of high profile wins and placings in Japan and another tilt at the Arc in France he could be the world's leading money earner, surpassing TM Opera O's $16,200,337.

    Sometimes the racing gods do the right thing, don't they? :-)

    What drama! And I don't mean the horses. First of all, what was that with Gio Ponti's jockey? When Victoire Pisa passed him, Gio Ponti's jockey pulled him up so hard that his nose was in the clouds. Then the horse put his ears back and dug in, and came on well at the end. I thought he would have won if he hadn't been pulled up.

    More than funny was the translation of Ishikawa's response to the question, "How does this feel considering everything that your country has gone through? The translator interprets the question, Ishikawa replies in Japanese, and the translator says, "(something unintelligible). Winning. Win. Win, win, win."

    Then there was that funny scene with the Japanese woman who, sobbing dramatically, throws herself on Sheik Mohammed and doesn't let go. He pats her on the back and the hug continues in one of those awkward too-long hugs as she wails hysterically. The look on his face was priceless.

    Great race by Victoire Pisa. Too bad for my favorite, Richard's Kid.

    Now PeteyPie, you're not suggesting that Ishikawa was taking a cue from America's Drug Addled Sweetheart Charlie Sheen with all his (translated, of course) references to "winning", are you?



    Gio Ponti looked fantastic to my eye, actually, and was super game and gritty. I didn't understand what happened with him getting held up, either.

    Thrilled for the Japanese connections, but that's the worst US showing I can remember
