The eighth night of the 2015 Dubai World Cup Carnival brings us three stakes races and a continued incredibly tight race over the course of the season in the tipster column.
Mackenzie’s Best Bet – Race 3 – #4 LOCAL TIME
Local Time heads into the UAE Oaks off a five-race win streak, her only loss coming in her debut last year. She has since proved to be quite the horse for Godolphin, winning the UAE 1000 Guineas in her last start by an easy 3.25 lengths. Her victories have come over turf, all-weather, and dirt. She has run against every horse in the field prior, and beat each one. Her only question is the added distance as most progeny of Invincible Spirit have excelled as milers or sprinters. However, her dam-sire Medicean lends some stamina to the filly, and judging by the ease of her last victory, she should be able to get the job done.
