This is an interesting move...doesn't Dubai have strict drug regulations and race lasix free? It'll be interesting to see how this works

Doug O'Neil usually sends a few over every year for the UAE Derby and its prep races, so this isn't surprising.

Nice story from earlier this year on the guy actually making the move.

I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Loved the story!

Sidenote: I always liked how you could work your way up at the racetrack. When I first was there, all I did was cleaning saddles and as a reward they showed me how to groom a horse :lol: 3 years later and young me was taking care of 6 horses full time (of course under the watchful eye of their trainer). I learned sooo much during that time and I still appreciate it til today.

Curious if Mora's still separated from his wife, probably can't be an easy decision for her to move to Dubai?

Any updates on these plans?
Not sure Dubai or Saudi Arabia would be on top of my travel plans list right now.
