I don't agree with the generalization that a trip to Dubai takes too much out of a horse. If he goes to Dubai it will be to try and win a 2 million dollar race at a distance the Trainer and owners belive may be a good fit over a surface that was completely renovated about 4 years ago to closely match Churchill. If you want to find out if your horse will be competitive going 10 furlongs against a full field of classy horses what better way to find out? Last years UAE Derby turned into a key international race with several runners coming back to win major stakes in the US and Europe. My opinion is so far I have not been impressed with any US based runner and this year Godolphin has the best opportunity yet to seriously contend For the Derby-just don't know who yet. Maybe Dubai Destination. Too bad he wasen't one of the horses in the futures pool instead of King's Consul but I have a nice wager in pool one on King's Consul and Tempara along with Fonz's who has done nothing to indicate he will not improve.
