200,000 Al Shindagha Sprint (UAE-III), 3 and up, 6 furlongs (dirt)

PP., Horse, Weight, Jockey

1. Valiance, 127, Kevin Shea
2. Sea Hunter, 127, Royston Ffrench
3. Diabolical, 131, Frankie Dettori
4. Terrific Challenge, 127, Ted Durcan
5. Malayeen, 127, Ahmed Ajtebi
6. Power Politics, 127, Wayne Smith
7. Botanical, 127, T. P. O’Shea
8. Salaam Dubai, 127, Richard Mullen
9. Asiatic Boy, 131, Johnny Murtagh
10. Mercury Chief, 127, Adrian T. Nicholls


this has to be the strongest grade 3 i have ever seen in my life. you have to be freaking kidding me.


I like diabolical and he just might very well win it beacuse it's 6F but Asiatic boy IMHO is the 2nd best dirt horse in training in the world behind curlin and he'd give curlin a HELL of a run for his money. why they tried him on turf I have no idea but he is undefeated, and hasn't been challeneged yet on dirt.. UAE Triple crown winner, won the UAE Derby in a laugher, looked like Dubai Millnium coming down the stretch.

my only question is 6F might not be enough but he races close to the front so I don't know. Very interesting race

Beyond Diabolical and Asiatic Boy the field looked like it would be a decent 80 AOC at Churchill

i've been screaming about this horse being one of the best horses in the world since day uno I joined this forum.. I was (honestly) shocked when he didn't make an attempt to come to the US for the breeders cup... yet when I tell you to throw everything you have on him no one listens...it gets tossed out with the trash, yet had I lost I would have been beheaded.




I'm going to go out on the limb and say this might very well be the best horse in the world. In a mile and an 8th race via curlin at dubai I don't know if curlin wants a pecie of him

His UAE Derby win

this will turn out to be the best race of the year anywhere IMHO.


foggy: please try to watch an international race sometime... you and this damn diabolical/benny crush you have. diabolical didn't even finish ITM

Did you watch the race? Diabolical went to his knees. I dont think Diabolical is worth what they paid, but hes certainly a better sprinter than anything in that field.

If you think Asiatic Boy can beat Curlin you are out of your mind.

yes I watched the race...but that's not the point. I'm not going to argue with you.

"my only question is 6F might not be enough but he races close to the front so I don't know. Very interesting race" is a long, long way from "yet when I tell you to throw everything you have on him"

You flip-flop more than a Mexican jumping bean.

how is that flip flopping.. that's analysis. I would probably bet on AB over curlin if given the oppotunity. go and do a search on his name on this forum and I guarantee you I am the one who is bringing him up. I love the darn horse but i'm also realistic... I love tiago but I wouldn't bet him against say, benny the bull in a 6F sprint

bdw

Do not try to run around the fact that you never told anyone he was a lock and to bet the house, you were iffy at best. Flip-flop, spin, call it whatever you want, I call it bulls--t and trying to make like you were actually touting the horse to win. We are all at 100% picking winners after the fact.

sorry my fault.. I just went back and looked at my post.. it might havfe been on another forum or I might have not posted it and just thought it but I'm pretty damn sure I said that if he was over 2 to 1 i'd throw whatever i had on him. i'll look for it.
