For Saturday, 29 February -Saudi Cup Day
The horses have had a bit of work out the last few days on parts of the track – turf and dirt. The trainers have given interviews and the excitement is palpable. Today we spoke with Bob Baffert about his two entries, Mucho Gusto and McKinzie in the $20Million Saudi Cup. He acknowledged they are doing well and both great competitors but that the field is formidable.
We also spoke to two of the Arabian trainers here at morning workouts – Eric Lemartinel who brings Amwaj, and Elizabeth Bernard with the Tunisian entry Hajres.
