  1. Gloria De Campeao has had a remarkable 2010 racing season thus far. Having won the Al Maktoum Challenge
    Rd.1, running 2nd to Red Desire in the Al Maktoum Challenge Rd.3, winning the Dubai World Cup, and running 2nd to Lizard’s Desire in the Singapore Airlines International Cup. A race he won in 2009. Since winning the Meydan Hotel Trophy at Nad Al Sheba in February 2009, Gloria De Campeao had only finished worse than 2nd in one start. Where he ran 7th in America in the 2009 Arlington Million. Incredible race resume’ put together by this great 7yr.old Brazilian champion colt.
