Gloria De Campeo wins Al Maktoum Challenge Rd 1


This seven-year-old Brazilian-bred great, great, great grandson of our Dancer winning the G1 in Dubai last week is not the main story here. It was the first big race at the $2 billion Meydan Racecourse in Dubai. The official opening is scheduled for March during their International Racing Carnival featuring the Dubai World Cup. The country that now boasts the world's tallest building is about to claim the world's newest, state-of-the-art and most extravagant racecourse. To call it impressive would be an understatement. Have a look for yourself.
