Chrome Grabs Gold -Watch The Replay!

Saddle slip can't stop the favourite

California Chrome made it look easy to win the world’s richest horse race, the $10 million Gr1 Dubai World Cup.

Last year’s runner-up, who went off as 15-8 joint favourite, dominated from a long way out and, once they turned for home, jockey Victor Espinoza’s mount moved clear.

The 2014 US Horse of the Year went on to triumph by four lengths, despite Espinoza’s saddle slipping back.

It is a first win in the race for Espinoza and trainer Art Sherman.

SA challenger Mubtaahij (16-1) took second for jockey Christophe Soumillon and trainer Mike de Kock, with Hoppertunity (25-1) third for trainer Bob Baffert.

It was a third win in three starts for California Chrome since injury ruled him out of a planned visit to Royal Ascot last summer.

    While on the DWC meeting,can the editor find out how the South African free TAB sheets had the same horse carded in the fifth race and the seventh race?
    Yes it was that horse Ertijaal again.
    Do the powers- that-be not know that there are TWO horses with the same name and same owner?
    One is a Bay gelding.and the other a Chestnut colt.And they do not have the exact race form(10 runs 4 wins 3 places)Information on these two horses is muddling.
    Come on is their no one that checks these things before publishing.
