Game On Dude, Royal Delta get Cup posts
The $10 million Dubai World Cup at Meydan Racecourse is this Saturday, and the premier pair of U.S.-trained horses — Bob Baffert’s Game On Dude and Bill Mott’s Royal Delta — drew posts worlds away from each other. Mott got his choice and took Post 7; Baffert, still in the hospital after a heart attack, was assigned Post 14, the only one remaining. Mott’s Royal Delta will attempt to become the first female to win the World Cup in its 17 runnings. Stream the full card LIVE on

2011 FLORIDA DERBY: Post Position Draw on Thursday

If you are curious as to when the entries will be out for this Sunday’s Grade 1 Florida Derby, the draw will take place tomorrow afternoon at Gulfstream Park. Currently, the field looks like it is going to be on the small side with only six confirmed entries. However, you could make an argument that the Florida Derby’s field of six will be stronger than the Louisiana Derby’s field of 13. Below are the six horses expected to enter the Florida Derby:

Arch Traveler
Bowman’s Causeway
Dialed In
Stay Thirsty
To Honor and Serve
