So You Think is Dubai favorite

Fri., March 30, 2012, midnight

The $10 million Dubai World Cup has a favorite in So You Think, and also a sentimental choice in Game On Dude. So You Think, bred in New Zealand, is the 5-2 favorite heading into the world’s richest horse race on Saturday at Dubai, United Arab Emirates. But Kentucky-bred Game on Dude is trained by Hall of Famer Bob Baffert, who expects to attend the races less than a week after suffering a heart attack. “Need to win World Cup just to break even on medical bills,” Baffert posted on his Twitter feed after being released from a Dubai hospital on Thursday. The World Cup features nine races with purses totaling $27.25 million. – AP
