Taça do Mundo do Dubai 2018
March 31, 2018 -- A 23ª edição da prova mais rica do mundo, incluindo a Taça do Mundo
do Dubai de $10 milhões em prémio, tem lugar no hipódromo de Meydan, no Dubai, Emiratos Árabes Unidos.
The first Dubai World Cup in 1996 was won by American horse Cigar and, until 2017, was the richest horse race in the world -- only to be overhauled by the inaugural $12 million Pegasus World Cup in Florida.
Ten horses, dominated by American horses, line up for the 2018 race, with Bob Baffert’s West Coast, set to be ridden by Javier Castellano, considered the favourite after powering to two successive Grade One wins at the Travers Stakes and and the Pennsylvania Derby, alongside a third-place finish in the Breeders' Cup Classic.
