The connections of Horse of the Year Curlin are determined to give the prepossessing chestnut a chance to create his own legend in racing. His quest for such glory begins this year in Dubai, where he will try to win the world’s richest race, the $6 million Dubai World Cup (UAE-I), as a leap toward shattering Cigar’s career earnings record of $9,999,815. Michele MacDonald — who is covering her 10th consecutive Dubai World Cup — shares the most intimate moments of this Middle Eastern sojourn, focusing on the people closest to Curlin and the exceptional colt himself, as well as offering a magic carpet ride through the land of Dubai. Follow the journey via Michele's daily blog, Morning Line Goes to Dubai, sponsored by Shadwell Farm. Read today's blog postings.
