The well known jockeys publicly stating that the track and footing is perfect in every way made me lol. Because if anyone will tolerate a dissenting opinion, it's the royal family of Saudi Arabia.

Baffert said its to deep a track for a horse to run in the Saudi Cup and then make it to the Dubai WC and have a chance at winning there too. Will be interesting if its well supported and if any horse tries the Pegasus, Saudi Cup and DWC. I wish a female trainer/jockey combo could win it. ;)

Apparently Gronkowski will try for the triple whilst connections of Axelrod are pointing to the Saudi Cup.
