The Carnival season is upon us once again and I find this annual occasion very interesting and very exciting. To me it’s another Festival I look forward to with immense expectation of great racing.
What am I looking forward to about this years Carnival? Well I have so many things I could write about but I have narrowed my ‘huge’ list down to just five things for us all to look for this year.
I look forwards firstly to the vast amount of International stars, horses that is, who will be racing and giving us all their Superstar Quality throughout the Dubai Carnival. Apart from the UAE horses we have horses coming from USA, France, Norway, Ireland, UK and South Africa. I am not sure if the Japanese are planning to be there this season. Surprisingly the Scandinavian horses do well at the Carnival with Niels Peterson making the breakthrough in 2015 with Beat Baby.
Secondly I look forwards to seeing one of my favourite horses running the winning machine Vazirabad from Alain Du Roger-Dupre’s yard in France. This grand old Warrior is a regular visitor to this meeting and all being well he will go for an unprecedented third win in the Dubai Gold Cup. I do hope he does it!
Thirdly we will see some of the fastest sprinters in the world. The going is normally ‘lightening quick’ and it’s a fantastic site to see these majestic sprinters bolting down the sprinting course at the Carnival. What a treat!
Fourthly I look kindly at the Godolphin dominance of the meeting… why you ask? Well their dominance gives us a lot of opportunities to back winners. They promote and sponsor the Carnival and I think they deserve a good return of winners for doing so… in my eyes this is a MAJOR spectacle in the racing calendar. Perhaps Heavy Metal or Long River for Godolphin could give current favourite Thunder Snow something to think about.
Finally the World Cup on the final evening of the meeting is the $10 million showpiece with top rated thoroughbreds up for this massive prize. Last year Arrogate was the first horse to be rated over 140 when winning. Arrogate seems a mere shadow of himself nowadays and perhaps that leaves the door open for Collected or West Coast to step forwards. Whatever it’s an event to savour. I hope you enjoy every aspect of this years Dubai Carnival.
