Jesus’ Team On Schedule For March 27 Dubai World Cup

Jesus’ Team, who finished second behind Knicks Go in the $3-million Pegasus World Cup Invitational (G1) at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach, Fla., continues to train forwardly toward a scheduled start in the $12-million Dubai World Cup (G1) at Meydan in the United Arab Emirates on March 27.

Trainer Jose D’Angelo reported Sunday that the 4-year-old son of Tapiture exited Saturday’s 1:01.45 breeze at Palm Meadows in good order.

“It was an easy work, a maintenance work,” D’Angelo said. “Next week, he’ll work six-furlongs.”

Luis Saez, who has been aboard for his last three starts, has been signed on to ride Jesus’ Team in Dubai.

Jesus’ Team, who broke his maiden for a $32,000 claiming price at Gulfstream last March, has been stakes-placed in his last six starts, including a third-place finish in the Oct. 3 Preakness Stakes (G1), a second-place finish in the Nov. 7 Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile (G1) at Keeneland, and his runner-up effort in the Pegasus that boosted his bankroll over the $1 million mark.
