California Chrome wins Dubai World Cup

American horse takes $6m prize from world's richest race

California Chrome produced a fabulous display to win the Dubai World Cup at Meydan.

The American horse was beaten into second place by rank outsider Prince Bishop last year but was rarely threatened this time as he ran out a comfortable winner of the world's richest race.

Starting from stall 11, California Chrome, ridden by Victor Espinoza, was happy to stay out wide early on while Frankie Dettori made a good start early on on Mshawish.

However, as soon as the favourite kicked for home the race was over as he easily pulled clear of the rest of the field.

Afterwards Espinoza paid tribute to the horse's performance.

"I was wide but it was comfortable, he did everything right," he said. "Perfect.

"Sometimes it is better to be wide than on the inside and everything went well, I stuck next to the leader.

"I could feel the saddle slipping so I kicked for home earlier than I wanted, it went quite far back.

"I want to say 'thank you' to everyone, it means a lot."
