The US$10m Group 1 Dubai World Cup, sponsored by Emirates Airline, attracted 296 nominations made notable by the presence of the first seven over the line in last year’s Breeders’ Cup Classic. The list is topped by the California-bred US Horse of the Year, Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes winner, California Chrome, UAE Derby winner Toast Of New York and Belmont Stakes winner Tonalist.

Breeders’ Cup Classic winner Bayern attempts to give trainer Bob Baffert a third Dubai World Cup success following Silver Charm in 1998 and Captain Steve in 2001.

Also among the list from the USA is the Champion Older Male and Champion Turf Horse of 2014, Main Sequence, trained by Graham Motion, who prepared Animal Kingdom to win the Dubai World Cup in 2013.
