Life Is Good will try to win one of the world's richest horse races when he leaves the starting gate in the 2022 Dubai World Cup on Saturday at Meydan Racecourse in Dubai. Ranked as the No. 1 horse in the world, Life Is Good is the 4-5 morning-line favorite in the 2022 Dubai World Cup odds. Pennsylvania Derby winner Hot Rod Charlie is the 3-1 second choice in the 11-horse 2022 Dubai World Cup field, while Saudi Cup runner-up Country Grammer is 8-1. Post time for the 1¼-mile race is 12:30 p.m. ET.
With some of the world's best horses entering the starting gate on Saturday, you'll want to see what racing reporter and analyst Michelle Yu has to say before making any Dubai World Cup picks.
Few people in racing are as connected as Yu. An on-air host and reporter who has provided racing analysis for TVG, HRTV and the Breeders' Cup, Yu has spent a lifetime in racing. Prior to her television career, she worked for trainers Steve Asmussen and Ron Moquett. She also is married to Santa Anita-based trainer Ryan Hanson.
She also has tremendous handicapping chops. In the 2011 Kentucky Derby, she correctly tabbed Animal Kingdom to win at a hefty 21-1. In the 2017 Breeders' Cup, she nailed 11-1 long shot Wuheida to win the Filly and Mare Turf. Last year, in a wide-open Kentucky Derby, she gave out Medina Spirit, who crossed the finish line first, as the winner at 12-1.
And since joining SportsLine in November, her picks have cashed in six of nine races, including the exacta in the Breeders' Cup Classic.
Now, Yu has handicapped the 2022 Dubai World Cup field, made her picks and constructed her bets.
One surprise: Yu is high on Midnight Bourbon, even though he's a 10-1 long shot. "There is nothing to say he can't win," she told SportsLine. "He's bred for it, has a good running style, stays the distance and has top connections." Yu will be including Midnight Bourbon in her wagers.
Yu is especially high on three horses on top, including an enormous double-digit long shot who "seems to be training well in Meydan." She is including these horses in her 2022 Dubai World Cup bets, and so should you. You ABSOLUTELY need to see her picks before locking in any of your own.
So who wins the 2022 Dubai World Cup? And what huge double-digit long shot is a MUST-BACK?... Join SportsLine right now to get the top 2022 Dubai World Cup picks and bets, all from the well-connected racing reporter who nailed last year's Kentucky Derby!
