 2022 Dubai World Cup Complete Race Preview

The 2022 Dubai World Cup is a rich day in and of itself, but the title race is the richest of the nine races on the schedule. Serving as the event’s finishing act, the 1200m dirt race carries a purse of $12 million USD. This year’s field is made up of five horses from the United States, with Country Grammer trained by the legendary and controversial Bob Baffert. The five-year-old placed second in the Saudi Cup back in February to open the year.

Hot Rod Charlie, trained by Doug O’Neill had a strong year last year and will be one to watch in the 2022 Dubai World Cup. The four-year-old colt took first at the Al Maktoum Challenge earlier this year and should build as the schedule does. Hot Rod Charlie took first place in the Pennsylvania Derby in 2021, third place at the Kentucky Derby, and second place at both the Breeder’s Cup and Belmont Stakes.

Competing close with the other two horses, Midnight Bourbon is prepared for a strong run on Saturday as well. Despite coming up winless in the top races last year, the four-year-old colt was close. Finishing third at the Saudi Cup this year behind Emblem Road and Country Grammer, Midnight Bourbon was second at the Pennsylvania Derby and Travers Stakes in 2021. Top-three finishes at Preakness Stakes and the Lousiana Derby were other high points.
