2010 Dubai World Cup Post Position Draw
(25 March 2010)


The 2010 Post Position Draw for the Dubai World Cup was held this evening at The Meydan Hotel, where the final fields and post position draws were revealed for the upcoming 2010 Dubai World Cup race meeting on Saturday.

In the number one stall is Godolphin’s Allybar, trained under Mahmoud Al Zarooni who commented: “It will be my first day as a fully fledged trainer and I will be very nervous but I am happy with the inside draw”.

Stall number two was drawn by Gitano Hernando, who’s owner Barry Irwin said “[Jockey] Keiren Fallon will be relieved that we have stall two and this horse is getting better as he gets older”. The draw also delighted his trainer Marco Botti who added: “Barrier two is great. From there Keiren should be able to have him midfield or slightly better, and there is pace in the race which will suit him”.

Japan’s contender Red Desire will jump from barrier three, with the trainer commenting that draw “didn’t matter” and “the reason [I] picked up the number one was because it was placed in would be the winning position on a left-handed course”.

American raider Gio Ponti starts out of gate four, and the assistant trainer Christophe Lorieul said: “That’s great, we wanted to be in the first half. We were rooting to be in the first half, it doesn’t seem to be much kick back and the rail is the closest way around”.

2009 Dubai World Cup runner up Gloria de Campeao drew barrier number five with Stefan Friborg saying “I’m really happy with that draw. We’re not just here for the money but for the honour to be up against 13 of the best horses in the world”.

French hopeful Vision d’Etat follows on in stall six, and trainer Eric Libaud seemed complacent, and described the horse as perhaps even better than Terre A Terre, Dubai Duty Free 2002 winner.

Mike de Kock’s Lizard’s Desire drew stall number seven, with Racing Manager Yousef Al Sayegh optimistic, as “seven is my lucky number”.

Jim Cornes representing owners of Furthest Land chose barrier eight, and he said “[The horse] has settled down well since he arrived from America and it will be great to think that it could give Ken and Sarah Ramsey a second [Dubai] World Cup in after Roses in May 2005”.

Trainer Brian Meehan, who’s horse Crowded House drew stall number 9 said “[It] is an ok draw because they will go a fast pace and I’m happy with that. He needed his two prep races which have blown the cob webs away.”

America’s other hopeful in the race, Richard’s Kid goes from barrier ten, and the assistant trainer Jim Barnes was relieved, saying: “I spoke to Bob [Baffert] on the phone and he was just glad I didn’t choose number 14 – the titanic”.

Twice Over, trained by Henry Cecil drew gate number 11, and Racing Manager Teddy Grimthorpe said “All our three horses have been drawn wide and it’s disappointing as they all need to be handy. Twice Over hit a flat spot last summer but Henry Cecil found two confidence boosting wins and he won the Championships Stakes at Newmarket really well, and then ran a blinder at the Breeder’s Cup. the idea of taking him to California was to find out if he acted on a synthetic surface as this race has always been in the back of our mind”.

Godolphin’s Mastery will run from barrier number 12, the same post Curlin won from in 2008, and trainer Saeed bin Suroor commented “The draw is ok, as Frankie knows him well and he will be able to get a good position. The horse is in good form and has worked well on the surface so we are hopeful”

Last in the field is Saudi Arabia’s Amor de Pobre, who’s handler Jerry Barton said “Glad to be in there no matter what the post. Now we just leave it up to the rider. No one would have picked the outside post but that’s racing luck You could see us up on the lead if no one goes for it”.
