Prince Bishop pulled away from race favorite California Chrome on the home straight to win the $10 million Dubai World Cup
Prince Bishop pulled away from race favorite California Chrome on the home straight to win the $10 million Dubai World Cup by two and three-quarter lengths on Saturday.
Starting from the inside No. 1 post, William Buick rode Prince Bishop to the horse’s first victory on dirt, while California Chrome’s travails on the surface continue.
The Art Sherman-trained 4-year-old, the U.S. horse of the year, has not won on dirt since the Preakness Stakes and, despite lying second going into the final leg, could not keep pace when Prince Bishop attacked.
The 8-year-old was bred in Ireland, owned by Saeed bin Suror, and trained in the Emirates.
Lea, trained by William Mott, finished third at Meydan Racecourse.
