So You Think’s Chances Improve – Dubai World Cup 2012

Already favourite to win the 2012 Dubai World Cup, champion horse So You Think’s chances improved even more when receiving a favourable barrier four draw for the this weekend’s Group 1 event.

The two-time Cox Plate champion is the $4.00 favourite to take top honours in the $10 million race which has attracted a high class field of horses from all over the world.

So You Think

So You Think is the clear favourite to win the 2012 Dubai World Cup

An invention of Sheikh Mohammed in 1996, the Dubai World Cup stands as the world’s richest horse race and is run over 2000 metres.

So You Think arrived safely in Dubai on Monday and the Aidan O’Brien trained horse pulled up fine following the journey.

He joined the rest of the Ballydoyle contingent yesterday for a walk around the Meydan track upon which they will run on Saturday (Sunday 4:40am AEDT).

So You Think lead the team for two circuits of the track with the aim of getting a feel of the all-weather artificial surface and he was reported to have looked spritely.

The prolific five-year-old’s main rival to take top billings in the event is Japanese horse Smart Falcon who is currently paying $6.00 (

Trained by leading Japanese horseman Ken Kozaki, Smart Falcon has been targeted for the Dubai World Cup since last year.

Kozaki left him in the stables yesterday and said all he had to do was keep him in condition and he would be among the challengers this weekend.

Next back in the betting is American horse Game On Dude ($7.50) who comfortably jogged through a light 1600 metre work out yesterday morning.

So You Think was formerly trained by the legendary Bart Cummings and won five Group 1 races in Australia before the Coolmore Stud bought a majority stake in the horse and elected to race him in Europe.

He has proven just as successful overseas and has so far in his career amassed over $7 million in prize money.
