Wigmore Hall planned for possible Dubai World Cup tilt; Bary has new challenger for Carnival, Sheema

Wigmore Hall, the well-campaigned 3-year-old gelding trained by Michael Bell, is expected to be a high-profile up-and-comer at the 2011 Dubai International Racing Carnival, with a plan for the Dubai World Cup (G1).  With three wins, four seconds, and a third from nine starts in six months, this son of High Chapparal acquitted himself best in his non-placing, fifth beaten four, at the end of a long campaign, to Twice Over in the Emirates Airline Champion Stakes (G1).  Bell told the Racing Post his plans include two races in Dubai, then Hong Kong, before a visit to Singapore.  CLICK HERE for the full article.

Meanwhile, last year’s Dubai World Cup-winning trainer Pascal Bary has new hopes for Interaction after one lackluster start in 2010.  Bary plans on sending the explosive former South American to go over the Tapeta, and then potentially the Dubai Sheema Classic (G1).  CLICK HERE for that article.

  1. Wigmore Hall has had an outstanding 2010 season. He was my long shot pick in the Champion Stakes at Newmarket. And he by no means was disgraced in the race either. Finishing 5th against an all-star cast. Beaten only by Twice Over, Vision D’Etat, Debussy, and Gitano Hernando. All G1 winners. I think Wigmore Hall is improving race by race, and could certainly be a factor in the 2011 Dubai World Cup. JMO.
