Monterosso from Godolphin wins Dubai World Cup
(31 March 2012)


Monterosso won the world’s most valuable race, the $10million Dubai World Cup, here on Saturday to give victory to the brainchild behind the race, his owner Shaikh Mohammed Al Maktoum’s Godolphin Operation.

The winner who was third last year, came home clear under Mikael Barzalona ahead of another Godolphin runner Capponi while Planteur was third and hot favourite, the former Australian champion So You Think, was a disappointing fourth.

Barzalona, who rode Pour Moi to victory in last year’s Epsom Derby, produced his much criticised trademark celebration of standing up in the saddle 60 metres before the finish on the 20/1 Mahmood Al Zarooni-trained winner.

There was to be no fairytale finish to the week for American trainer Bob Baffert, who suffered a heart attack last Monday, as his Game On Dude, ridden by the first woman to ride in the race Chantal Sutherland, finished among the also rans. 

Flood of warm congratulations poured on Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, on the historic victory the UAE horses have made.
