Breakfast At Gulfstream, Racing From Dubai
HALLANDALE BEACH, FL – Some of the top thoroughbreds in the world, including South Florida residents Fly Down, Gio Ponti and I Want Revenge, will compete Saturday in the Dubai World Cup, an eight-race, $20 million program that fans will be able to watch and wager on at Gulfstream Park.
As part of its popular ‘Breakfast at Gulfstream’ program Saturday, which runs from 7-10 a.m. and includes an $8 buffet, tours of the backstretch and a free t-shirt with every paid breakfast, Gulfstream will show the World Cup broadcast live on its infield Jumbotron and open its Silks Simulcast Center to fans beginning at 8:30 a.m.
Fly Down, who has spent the winter at Gulfstream’s satellite training facility Palm Meadows for Hall of Fame trainer Nick Zito, and Gio Ponti, who has trained at Payson Park for Christophe Clement, will run in the $10 million World Cup. I Want Revenge, stabled at Gulfstream for trainer Richard Dutrow, will compete in the $1 million Godolphin Mile. Sweet Ducky, who finished second Jan. 30 in Gulfstream’s Holy Bull (G3), will go to post in the $2 million UAE Derby.
