New Zealand racemare Sunline could become the first Australasian horse to reach the elusive AUS$10-million earnings mark with a victory in Saturday's $US2-million (AUS$4.09 million) Dubai Duty Free, a turf race on the Dubai World Cup card at Nad al Sheba racecourse in the United Arab Emirates. A victory would be worth US$1.2-million (AUS$2.45 million).

Sunline has 25 wins from 33 starts to her credit, including nine of her last 10, and has a career bankroll of $A7,620,532. She has been victorious in Australia, New Zealand and Hong Kong, with nine group I win.

"I think we have her in better shape than when she won in Hong Kong," said Trevor McKee, who trains the mare with Stephen McKee.
