On the final full training session before the Dubai World Cup card, many entrants put the final touches on their preparations for the world's richest race meeting. Horses were on the main track, turf course, and training track Friday morning.
Assistant trainer Scott Blasi opted to keep World Cup favorite Curlin away from the crowds by sending him for an early morning gallop on the training track. He said, "I just decided that we're ready and what's done is done, and that a quiet day would be good for the horse. My job is to get him to the race as best as we can. We just took him out to give him a little exercise and keep him happy."
