The fields for the $15.25million Dubai World Cup meeting at Nad Al Sheba on March 24 are all but finalized with just one or two horses yet to confirm their participation. U.S.-based Ladies Din and Arkadian Hero will contest the grade II Dubai Duty Free, joining Captain Steve and Aptitude, who will run in the featured Wolrd Cup.

The runners for the grade I , $6-million Dubai World Cup, sponsored by Emirates and the opening leg of the 2001 Emirates World Series Racing Championship, has been finalized at 14 runners with four runners from the United Arab Emirates, three from Al Quoz Stables; Best Of The Bests, Ekraar and Broche as well as State Shinto from the Oasis Stables of John Sadler.

"We are ecstatic about the response for the Dubai World Cup program next Saturday, a meeting that will set the standard for excellence in international racing," said Les Benton, chairman of the Dubai World Cup Committee. "The international contingent is spread evenly across all races and the diversity of representation is very pleasing."
