Brian Zipse who operates the site Horse Racing Nation has been tracking the horses who will compete for the rich purses in Dubai this week. Led by the 2014 Horse of the Year, California Chrome, and last year’s Wood Memorial and Pennsylvania Derby winner, Frosted, a field of 13 probables has been announced for the March 26 Dubai World Cup. Both American stars have been in Dubai for some time, and they each look to be coming up to the race in fine fettle. Brian will give us
an update on the scene in Dubai.
