There’s a lot of buzz in the racing world about Breeders’ Cup Classic and Pegasus World Cup winner Arrogate competing against 13 others in a start studded $10 Million Dubai World Cup, this Saturday March 25th.
Virginia-bred Long On Value will also be competing Saturday as part of World Cup under card at Meyden Racecourse in Dubai. The 6 year old Value Plus horse is entered in the $1 Million Al Quoz Sprint, which features a field of twelve at six furlongs.
Bred by the Snow Lantern Thoroughbreds, Long On Value has earned $691,093 from 26 starts and was most recently third in the Gulfstream Park Turf Sprint Stakes. He has collected a pair of graded stakes wins in his career — the Grade 2 Twilight Derby at Santa Anita (October, 2014) and the Grade 3 Canadian Turf Stakes at Gulfstream Park (February, 2015). Long On Value’s first stakes win came at Colonial Downs in the Jamestown Stakes on July 6, 2013.
Long On Value is trained by Bill Mott and he will be ridden by Joel Rosario. This will be race 5 on the Dubai card and is slated for 10 AM departure (east coast time). Fans can wager via on line betting partner companies TVG.com, XPressBet.com, TwinSpires.com and NYRABets.com. The two Richmond area Off Track Betting Centers — Ponies & Pints and Breakers Sports Grille — will simulcast races 7, 8 and 9 from Dubai beginning at 11:30 AM Saturday. The $10 million Dubai World Cup is slated to go off as the 9th race at 12:45 (EDT).
