Dubai World Cup

I was looking forward to catching the Dubai races in hi-def on NBCSN's coverage. However, I see that TVG's coverage starts at 4:30 AM Pacific (7:30 Eastern), while NBCSN's doesn't begin until 7:30 AM Pacific. Looks like only TVG will be showing the entire card, while NBC may only cover the last few big races, unless they show replays of those which ran before their programming begins. :?
Arrogate in the World Cup is the Big Deal, but I'm also interested in the Sheema Classic, where we often get to watch the world's best turf horses throw down. Postponed is likely to be favored again, even though he lost in the prep race, the City of Gold, a couple of weeks ago.

A fine enough draw for Arrogate, don't love Mubtaahij getting the 14 but I still think he's good to surprise here. Might figure out some tris keying Arrogate over Mubtaahij and/or Gun Runner... but really I'm just looking forward to enjoying the most talented horse we've seen in decades. If he wins big here, which looks likely, can his streak be considered anything less than one of the best sequences of races we've ever seen?

Apparently the rain has been causing chaos in Dubai, I had to google to make sure I wasn't seeing things in the pictures above :lol:
I think Arrogate got a good draw.

What is the weather supposed to be on Saturday? Wouldn't it be crazy if Meydan, smack in the middle of a desert, was an off track for the World Cup? :lol:
