Jesus’ Team To Enter Dubai World Cup As ‘Fresh Horse’

Grupo 7C Racing Stable’s Jesus’ Team returned to the track at Palm Meadows Training Center Friday morning, kicking off preparation for a planned start in the $12 million Dubai World Cup (G1) March 27.

Jesus’ Team enjoyed a week of frolicking in a round pen at Gulfstream Park’s satellite training center in Palm Beach County following his second-place finish in the $3 million Pegasus World Cup Invitational (G1) Jan. 23 at Gulfstream.

“He just jogged this morning,” trainer Jose D’Angelo said. “We’re making a training schedule for Dubai.”

Jesus’ Team’s connections were looking to the $20 million Saudi Cup Feb. 20 as a possible target following the 4-year-old son of Tapiture‘s runner-up finish behind Knicks Go that pushed his career earnings over $1 million.

“Dubai will be Jesus’ next race,” D’Angelo said. “We want a fresh horse for the Dubai World Cup.”

Jesus’ Team won a $25,000 claiming race at Gulfstream May 8 after being transferred to D’Angelo’s stable before going on the finish third in the Preakness Stakes (G1), second in the Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile (G1) and rallying to finish second in the Pegasus World Cup.
