Horse Racing Picks for Dubai World Cup on March 31, 2018
Bet on Horses for March 31, 2018
A few notes about The Dubai World Cup before I give my analysis. This used to be the richest race in the world, before the Gulf Stream Park came up with Pegasus Cup. This year the Dubai World Cup Race will be worth $10 million with $6 million going to the winner. Throughout the entire day there will over $19 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. There is also no “show” wagering for the day, all payouts will be win/place wagers, but there are triple, and superfecta payouts.
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 Bob Baffert 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, they only pay WIN and PLACE.
