Morning Line Goes to Dubai: Day 4

Morning Line Goes to Dubai:  Day 4

As racing fans and participants from around the world gathered at Nad Al Sheba Racecourse on Thursday for "Breakfast with the Stars," there was one name that seemed to be on everyone's lips: Curlin. People from Australia to Europe to South America to Asia all wanted to see the American Horse of the Year with their own eyes, to gauge how good he might really be before he races for the $6 million Dubai World Cup (UAE-I) on Saturday.

Spring At Last Comes Back in Donn

Spring At Last Comes Back in Donn

Spring At Last had only one start under his belt after winning the Godolphin Mile (UAE-II) last March, and that was a Dec. 26 allowance race over the Santa Anita turf. But Doug O'Neill had no qualms about sending the Silver Deputy colt into the $500,000 Donn Handicap (gr. I), and the trainer's faith was rewarded when his 4-year-old runner returned with a solid victory at Gulfstream Park Feb. 2.

Bulls Eye for Skip Away Winner A.P. Arrow

Allen Paulson Living Trust's 5-year-old homebred A.P. Arrow may have been the 1-to-2 favorite in Saturday's $114,500 Skip Away Handicap (gr. III) at Gulfstream Park, but the chestnut horse was all out to hold on for his first stakes victory by a head over the hard-charging Rehoboth.

No Stopping Invasor in Donn Handicap

No Stopping Invasor in Donn Handicap

Horse of the Year Invasor, all but stopped when hemmed in on the inside leaving the final turn of Saturday's $500,000 Donn Handicap (gr. I), would not be denied victory after gathering himself under Fernando Jara and rallying to win at Gulfstream Park.

Premium Tap Uncorked in Clark Handicap

Premium Tap Uncorked in Clark Handicap

Friday's $572,000 Clark Handicap, run for the first time as a grade I race, went to the only grade I winner in the field -- by a bunch -- when favored Premium Tap left his rivals far behind leaving the Churchill Downs' eighth pole in nearly track record time.

Premium Tap Tops Dozen Entered in Clark Handicap

George Kline, Peter Alevizos and David Whelihan's Premium Tap, third to Invasor in the Breeders' Cup Classic powered by Dodge (gr. I) at Churchill Downs on Nov. 4, returns to the historic Louisville track on Friday in search of a season-ending grade I victory when he faces 10 rivals in the 132nd running of the $500,000-added Clark Handicap presented by Norton Healthcare.

The Daddy's in Charge in Super Derby

Owner Greg Norman and trainer Salvador Gonzalez figured they had the speed edge heading into the 1 1/4-mile Super Derby (gr. II). That advantage was the difference as The Daddy held off A.P. Arrow in the $750,000 test for 3-year-olds at Louisiana Downs Saturday.

Friday's Belmont Notes: Getting in Final Licks

Preakness (gr. I) winner Afleet Alex, the favorite for Saturday's Belmont Stakes, settled into his new barn without a problem. John Shirreffs, the affable trainer of Kentucky Derby (gr. I) winner Giacomo, seemed nice and relaxed just one day before the rubber match at 1 1/2 miles.

Like Father, Like Son: Belmont Winners Who Sired Belmont Winners

Of the 136 past winners of the Belmont Stakes (gr. I), an even 12 have gone on to sire a Belmont winner (or winners) while at stud. In the 137th edition to be run this Saturday, 1992 winner A.P. Indy could make it an uneven 13 with two sons entered, and Thunder Gulch, sire of 2001 winner Point Given, could have a second son gain Belmont glory.
