Weather Alert

Thunderstorms & Poor Drainage Flooding Possible Today

Isolated instability showers will give way to a chance for thunderstorms this afternoon. While the overall threat for severe weather appears relatively low, one or two storms could produce gusty winds, large hail, and possibly very heavy rain. If heavy rain persists, or if multiple storms move over the same area, then low lying areas, and poor drainage locations, could experience flooding. A second round of late night storms may be possible, but the rain should clear off to the East after midnight.

UAE Derby Preview - 03/29/13

UAE Derby

1 3/16 Miles, Meydan, Dubai

This race is part of the richest day in horse racing. It is also thousands of miles away in Dubai. The winner will assure himself of a spot in the Kentucky Derby come May. This race features a field of 12, of which only three have ever raced in America and just two are Triple Crown nominated. The morning line favorite is Secret Number at 3/1. He ran three weeks ago at Meydan, winning at this distance over two others in this field. Shuruq has also won at this distance and is a real threat here. Dice Flavor won the El Camino Real Derby back in February after just two weeks rest, I like him to have a big run Saturday. Trainer Doug O'Neill shipped over He's Had Enough after a disappointing effort in the Fountain of Youth. I do not think he has enough to win here.

I see this race coming down to three horses, Secret Number, Shuruq and Dice Flavor. The first two are owned by Godolphin so that is a positive on the international racing front. The others lack have failed to show much of anything to this point.
