Stevens Scraps Dubai Riding Plans

Gary Stevens has scrapped plans to ride in Dubai on March 29, due to the war in the Middle East.

Kent Desormeaux will replace him on Grey Memo, who is the defending champion in the Godolphin Mile for trainer Warren Stute. Desormeaux also rides Outta Here for trainer Bill Currin in the $2 million UAE Derby.
