The Hyacinth Stakes runner-up Adirato
(JPN)(Rulership) has also accepted the invitation for the UAE Derby.
The UAE Derby is a G2 but a 2 million US$ race.
Plus, Dubai Racing Club pays shipping costs and provides many incentives to invited horses and his/her connections.
Everyone may know that the US TC Races are much more prestigious.
It still looks like Dubai is also a wonderful place...

I hope that both Japanese runners will take the same route as Lani last year.
