Final field for $20m Saudi Cup

Final field for $20m Saudi Cup


The richest horse race in the world, Saturday’s $20 million Saudi Cup drew a full field of 14 on Wednesday including five US-based horses.

All of the American runners appeared to draw well for the 1800m test, which is contested around one turn. Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile and Pegasus (G1) winner Knicks Go drew post position No 5 for trainer Brad Cox, while Max Player — who will be making his first start since the Preakness for trainer Steve Asmussen — will break just to his inside from post position No 4.

Charlatan, winner of the Malibu (G1) off a layoff most recently for trainer Bob Baffert, is the widest of the American horses in post No. 9. Sleepy Eyes Todd, exiting a fourth in the Pegasus for Asmussen, drew just to his inside in post No. 8. Tacitus — making his second go-around in the Saudi Cup after finishing fifth last year — is in post position No. 7. 



7-4 Charlatan
9-4 Knicks Go
6-1 Mishriff
12-1 Military Law, Tacitus
14-1 Chuwa Wizard
16-1 Max Player
20-1 and upwards others
