      Dubai World Cup at Meydan Picks

      Dubai World Cup at Meydan Odds

      In its history, the World Cup has been dominated by North American-trained horses and this year certainly looks like no exception with Arrogate tabbed as the 1/3 morning line favorite.

      Arrogate, a freakish talent trained by Bob Baffert, has already amassed nearly $11.1 million in career earnings despite just making seven career starts.

      So precocious, talented and fortuitous is the mottled gray runner, a victory in the World Cup - start number 8 - would make him the all-time richest thoroughbred and the first to eclipse $17 million.

      The looming question is can he be beaten in Dubai?

      So far, Arrogate has handled every challenge with aplomb, winning the Grade 1 Travers, Grade 1 Breeders' Cup Classic and the Grade 1 Pegasus World Cup in succession. He has 6 wins in 7 tries, dropping only his career debut following a troubled trip.

      By all accounts, the four year-old superstar is adjusting nicely to his Dubai surroundings, but one never knows how a horse will run halfway across the world until it's proven in competition.

      That competition figures to come primarily from Gun Runner (7/1), a rapidly improving North American contemporary of Arrogate's. Gun Runner finished third, 15 lengths behind Arrogate in the Travers Stakes last August, but has improved rapidly since that effort.

      Although he would still need marked improvement to challenge Arrogate, Gun Runner is a legitimate and logical contender in this spot. Mubtaahij (14/1) is a proven commodity at Meydan and is a likely runner in the 2-3-4 spots as is Hoppertunity 14/1.

      • 1st: Arrogate
      • 2nd: Gun Runner
      • 3rd: Mubtaahij
      • 4th: Hoppertunity
