The winner of the Dubai World Cup looking for another big pot.
In Frankie Dettori’s final year as a jockey, Country Grammer is on track to deliver a historic victory in the Saudi Cup.
Dettori was reunited with the son of Tonalist when he started his spell riding in Santa Anita on Boxing Day. The six-year-old was partnered by the Italian to win the Dubai World Cup in March of last year.
On a night when Dettori struck three times from five rides, Country Grammer could hardly have looked better in landing at short odds in the Grade Two San Antonio Stakes.
Taiba, a Grade One winner on the same Santa Anita card as the Malibu Stakes, is another option for Baffert, whose Charlatan was defeated by Mishriff in the inaugural running of the world’s most valuable race.
Further solidarity to the American test could come looking like Kentucky Derby legend Rich Strike, while last year saw a shock accomplishment for the privately claimed and prepared Symbol Street who might well re-visitation of shield his crown.
The son of Quality Road would become the highest-earning thoroughbred with a second victory, earning $20.2 million, surpassing the Australian wonder mare Winx, whose record-breaking career ended with $18.3 million.
Missed The Cut by George Boughey, Mostahdaf by John and Thady Gosden, Rebel’s Romance by Charlie Appleby, Saffron Beach by Jane Chapple-Hyam, Sir Busker by William Knight, and Algiers by Simon and Ed Crisford are all engaged for Britain.
