Dubai World Cup 2010 Betting odds to win the World’s Richest Horse Race 
Post Position draw was revealed for the 2010 Dubai World Cup which will take place on March 27, 2010.  Post Position draw was held at Meyadan and attracted a massive crowed.   

Number one stall goes to Godolphin’s Allybar who is a long shot at 22 to 1 to win the race.  Allybar is trained by Mahmoud Al Zarooni who commented: “It will be my first day as a fully fledged trainer and I will be very nervous but I am happy with the inside draw”.

7.4 to 1 to win the race Gitano Hernando will run in stall number two.  Gitano Hermando is owned by Barry Irwin, is trained by Marco Botti and the jockey is Keiren Fallon.  Gitano is in the top four horses to win the 10 million jackpot.  The trainer Marco Botti is happy with the draw who said: “Barrier two is great. From there Keiren should be able to have him midfield or slightly better, and there is pace in the race which will suit him”.

Gitano Hernando will run next to Japan’s Red Desire who at the odds of 7.8 to win will run from barrier three, trainer thinks this position is an edge on a left-handed course”.

Stall four goes to Gio Ponti and the assistant trainer Christophe Lorieul said: “That’s great, we wanted to be in the first half. We were rooting to be in the first half, it doesn’t seem to be much kick back and the rail is the closest way around”.

Gloria de Campeao who was the runner up in 2009 Dubai World will run from the stall five with Stefan Friborg saying “I’m really happy with that draw. We’re not just here for the money but for the honour to be up against 13 of the best horses in the world”.

Vision d’Etat  from France is favorite to win the race at odds of 6.2 to 1 will run from stall six, and trainer Eric Libaud is satisfied and thinks the horse is better than Dubai Duty Free 2002 winner Terre A Terre.

Mike de Kock’s Lizard’s Desire drew will run from stall number seven, although Racing Manager Yousef Al Sayegh is optimistic, as “seven is my lucky number” but at the odds of 34 to 1 Lizard’s Desire is a true long shot.

Barrier eight was chosen by the owners of Furthest Land but at the odds of 46 to 1, chances of Furthest Land doing what Roses done in may 2005 are slim. 

Trainer Brian Meehan, who’s horse Crowded House drew stall number 9.

American horse Richard’s Kid will run from barrier ten, and the assistant trainer Jim Barnes was relieved, saying: “I spoke to Bob [Baffert] on the phone and he was just glad I didn’t choose number 14 – the titanic”.

Twice Over, trained by Henry Cecil will run from stall 11 and at the odds of 6.8 to 1 is the only horse, which is considered by the betting market to give Vision d’Etat  run for his money. Most bettors think this race is between Twice Over and Vision d’Etat but Gitano Hernando at odds of 7.4 to 1 might pull an upset. Twice Over’s racing manager Teddy Grimthorpe said “All our three horses have been drawn wide and it’s disappointing as they all need to be handy. Twice Over hit a flat spot last summer but Henry Cecil found two confidence boosting wins and he won the Championships Stakes at Newmarket really well, and then ran a blinder at the Breeder’s Cup. the idea of taking him to California was to find out if he acted on a synthetic surface as this race has always been in the back of our mind”.

Godolphin’s Mastery will run from stall 12. Saudi Arabia’s Amor de Pobre will be the last in the field and the handler Jerry Barton said “Glad to be in there no matter what the post. Now we just leave it up to the rider. No one would have picked the outside post but that’s racing luck You could see us up on the lead if no one goes for it”.  The betting world gave Amor de Pobre 100 to 1 making him the true long shot.

Regardless of which horse wins the race, with a purse of 10 million Dubai World Cup hosts the world’s richest race and every owner, trainer and the jockey is looking for a big payday.
