And here we go on Dubai World Cup Day
by JOHN MUCCIOLO
This has to be the best way to start the day -- with high-class horse racing!
The weather is perfect at Meydan and the track played fairly in the opener, the Godolphin Mile, which was won narrowly by favored Tamarkuz, with Sloan Avenue just missing in second.
Third-placer Free Wheeling turned in a brave performance, chasing the clear pacesetter Frankyfourfingers and staying on well to the wire behind a pair of high-class runners.
For the upcoming Gold Cup, #5 Dubday looks a live one under Dettori – he’s been bet down from a hefty 15-1 morning line and brings great form for this experiment at the distance.
