Amateur preview, Meydan World Cup. Fair Wind for Surfer

Posted by jim g on Tuesday, March 26, 2013,
At last, after three months of wonderful racing, the talking is about to stop, and many of the globe's finest horses will fight out the honours on World Cup night. A glittering occasion as a spectacle, with the horses and indeed plenty prize-money to do it full justice.

It's impossible for flat racing afficianados not to salivate, and although I'm penning this on Tuesday, (updated Thursday), already everyone is talking up their fancy's chances. Eleven American raiders plus a smattering of exci...
