It appears that XBTV's coverage is beginning an hour earlier than TVG's, which begins at 4:30 AM Pacific/7:30 AM Eastern. You'd probably get to see every race (maybe the Arabian stakes, which TVG often ignores?) and perhaps the fancy festivities that begin the World Cup night?

Haven't figured out what this guy would be doing if he didn't fall into a horse like this as a new trainer. Some comments throughout this interview made me raise an eyebrow (passing on stallion deal last year?....didn't know about short stretch at Del Mar until he got there...yikes), as it was a well-known fact the horse was off on the backside at Saratoga last summer, yet he ran him anyway, and what happened that day wasn't a shock to most horsemen there. And now he's got the Pegasus next January circled already. Put me down as a bet-against if he even makes it there. Wish him luck in this race as well, as he's not getting my money here either.

I'll guess an expert commentator on TVG but he's got a face for radio so maybe more likely at HRRN.
Here's the balance of his top ten.....

Go Kelly Go Filly $58,000

I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Absolutely, I was wondering if that was standard for Dubai... must practically feel like turnout to her compared to the typical backstretch stall in the US :lol:

Gunnevera came back to the quarantine barn lame after his work this morning. Diagnosed with a bruised foot. Connections are confident that he'll still make the start in the Dubai Cup.

The Dubai World Cup will also be televised on NBCSN, at 9:30 AM Pacific/12:30 PM Eastern. NBCSN will have another one-hour slot later in the day, 3 PM Pacific/6 PM Eastern, to cover the Florida Derby.

I don't know if that single hour will allow NBCSN to also show any other races from Meydan, but I may tune in to watch the World Cup in hi-def. :D
I'm DVRing TVG's coverage, because it starts at 4:30 AM here. :P

If Pavel runs to his look (and looks), he may get a piece. It seems like ambition may have compromised this horse's talent a bit. I keep waiting. . . .

Gunnevera Much Improved From Foot Bruise
Trainer Antonio Sano spent a sleepless night after his Dubai World Cup Sponsored by Emirates Airline (G1) contender Gunnevera became slightly lame March 28. However, following a long foot soaking and a change of shoes, the 4-year-old colt was much improved by the morning of March 29 and ventured to the Meydan dirt track to school in the starting gate.

"Thank God, he is perfect now," Sano told the Meydan notes team after patting the chestnut on the nose as he stood quietly in the gate. "He had a little bruise on his left front foot, so we pulled the shoe and soaked the foot in water with Epsom salt. We left the shoe off overnight and then replaced it this morning.

"The farrier told me, 'Antonio, take care of this horse and he'll be good for the race.' He did a great, great job with the foot," Sano said.

Following his schooling session Thursday, Gunnevera had a light jog from a gate down the nearby chute. However, the son of Dialed In did not do any more exercise other than completing the about 4,800-meter (24 furlongs) round-trip journey from the quarantine barn area and back.

Sano plans to send Gunnevera to the Meydan dirt track March 30 to gallop approximately 2,400 meters (12 furlongs) under the floodlights, and the trainer hopes the foot issue will be completely resolved.

"I am so happy with my horse and I hope he will be 1,000% for the race," he said.

I do hope he'll feel better but I doubt he'll be 100%

I saw this article on PaulickReport. That is their standard stall size, at least for the international horses.
