June 26, Delaware Park ~The nominations are in for the 2nd running of the Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan Arabian Cup (G2) at Delaware Park on July 2 and will pit some of the finest in Arabian racing. T M Fred Texas trained by Ron Martino and owned by Sam Vasquez comes fresh off his win of the HH President’s Cup Grade I at Churchill Downs on June 18 where he upstaged Dixies Valentine trained by Tracy and Randy Nunley.
T M Fred Texas will also have to watch Bill Waldron’s Grilla, a noble contender. Don’t rule out Cre-Runs’ Nivour de Cardonne/Wiking bred, A Ladys Man, or stable mates Annswer To Prayer and Full of Fiesta. Don’t forget Dianne Waldron’s, Rich Frynchman, who won at Delaware Park on June 21 by a run away margin. And then there is the Guy Neivens Bred, Robotic. Will he be a surprise to this steller field?
