Life Is Good in Dubai

Life Is Good could not have been named any better than he already is as he stepped out for his main gallop at the main track in Meydan on Tuesday morning ahead of Saturday’s Dubai World Cup.

The well named horse is representing everything the Dubai World Cup raceday wanted. He is a beast of a horse with a race record, pedigree, looks and extremely good form. He is also the current World Ranking's best horse.

Life Is Good is well named for the Dubai scene where life is very good for both horses and people working with them in the desert paradise. From Al Karama to the Palms, the racing fans will be shouting for the American to take the rich prize on offer.

The world's eyes will be on Life Is Good come Saturday but the even money shot on the books internationally stepped out on Tuesday morning for his workout after breezing in the United States prior to his direct flight to Dubai. He's impressed onlookers each morning this week with his behaviour and looks and then looked the part in his easy work on Tuesday.

The former Baffert trained inmate now with Todd Pletcher is a game front running type who blew away his opposition in the Pegasus World Cup in January at Gulfstream. He may not be a need the lead type but it depends on how the race pans out.
