Gloria De Campeao wins $10 million Dubai World Cup

Front-running Gloria De Campeao lifts Dubai World Cup by a nose (at http://www.guardian.co.uk)


...Kevin Shea punched the air and got a slap on the back from fellow rider Ahmed Ajtebi after crossing the line in the Dubai World Cup, but while the photographers on the line caught him celebrating victory in the richest race ever staged, the camera on the line told a different story. Gloria De Campeao, under a beautifully judged front‑running ride by Tiago Pereira, was ahead where it mattered, a nose in front of Shea's mount Lizard's Desire, with Allybar and Ajtebi another short-head back in third.

It was a thrilling finish to the first $10m (£6.7m) race, though not one that involved any of the main contenders according to the betting. Gloria De Campeao had been beaten in this race in the last two seasons, and was a 16-1 chance with British bookies.

On form, he may have been difficult to fancy, but since he is trained in France by Pascal Bary, ridden by a Brazilian and owned by Stefan Friborg, a Swede, he was an appropriate winner, given Sheikh Mohammed's vision of the new Meydan racecourse as a focus of international racing. He is also a very difficult horse to pass when given an easy lead, which is just what Frankie Dettori, Kieren Fallon and the other riders allowed Pereira until the home turn.

Down the back, it was clear that Pereira was dictating a crawl, but no one seemed inclined to intervene and he had just enough in reserve to hold off Lizard's Desire in a frantic finish. Shea looked up a stride past the line and saw that he was in front, but he had missed out on the $6m first prize by a fraction of a second.

"Passing the post I thought I'd won," Pereira said, "but the other jockey started celebrating so I kept quiet and waited for the photo. The last 300 metres, I kept him going and kicked on and he's given me the best win of my life." ...(at http://www.guardian.co.uk)

March 27 (Bloomberg) -- Gloria De Campeao beat Lizard’s Desire by a nose to win the $10 million Dubai World Cup, the world’s richest horse race.

Gloria De Campeao, ridden by Tiago Pereira, led from the start at Meydan Racecourse and held off a furious closing charge from Lizard’s Desire and Allybar to win in a photo finish.

“It was fantastic,” winning owner Stefan Friborg said in a televised interview. “He has a heart that is bigger than him and enjoys to run. He never gave up.”

Gloria De Campeao, a Brazilian-bred 6-year-old who finished second to Well Armed last year, was given odds of 16-1. Lizard’s Desire was 33-1 and Allybar was 16-1. Pre-race favourites Gitano Hernando and Gio Ponti finished fourth and sixth respectively in the 14-horse field.
