With five talented U.S.-based racehorses seeking victory in tomorrow’s Dubai World Cup (UAE-I) at Meydan, now is a great time to recall the dominating victory by two-time U.S. Horse of the Year Curlin in the 2008 Dubai World Cup. With regular rider Robby Albarado in the saddle, Curlin romped to victory by 7 3/4 lengths over Asiatic Boy, with future Dubai World Cup winner Well Armed finishing third. Relive Curlin’s victory by watching the replay of the race!
