2017 Dubai World Cup Preview

Saturday's card at Meydan features nine graded stakes races, including the $10,000,000 Dubai World Cup.  The World Cup attracted a field of fourteen dirt runners from all over the world, headlined by Breeders' Cup Classic and Pegasus World Cup winner ARROGATE.  Here, Paul and I discuss the field horse by horse, and present our selections and longshots for the race.

Be sure, as well, to read our preview of the UAE Derby and the Dubai Turf -- complete with a grid of all of Nicolle Neulist's selections for Dubai World Cup day.

You can watch the Dubai World Cup on NBC Sports Network.  Their telecast will run from 9:30am-12:30pm CST.  It will feature live coverage of the Dubai Turf, the Sheema Classic, and the Dubai World Cup, as well as a replay of the UAE Derby.
