Horse Racing Picks by Dietz for Dubai World Cup on Saturday, March 30, 2019
Dubai World Cup – Saturday March 30, 2019
A few notes about The Dubai World Cup before I give my analysis.
This is back to being the richest race in the world with a purse of $12 million dollars, $7.2 million going to the winner of the race.
Last year the Dubai World Cup Race was worth $10 million with $6 million going to the winner.
Throughout the entire day, there will over $21 million in purse money won, making it the single largest race day in the world.
Interesting enough, not a single dollar will be wagered at the track, gambling is illegal in Dubai.
Last year I was incorrect in informing you there was no “show” wagering for the day. There was in fact show payouts at the OTB Tele-theatre. All other wagers will be in play for the day.
I have watched these races for a few years now and I can almost guarantee three things:
- Trainer Aidan O’Brien will win at least one race today (most likely with Ryan Moore as jockey)
- Jockey William Buick will win a race today.
- Trainer Bin Surour Saeed will win a race today.
NOTE: I do not pick the horses in winning order; just those that I feel will be in the money and remember. Go easy with the picks; we have a big day ahead at Gulfstream Park.
