Gio Ponti among World Cup entries
American-based Gio Ponti, Fly Down and Richard’s Kid are among 14 horses entered for Saturday’s $10 million Dubai World Cup. The world’s richest race drew entries from around the world. Gio Ponti finished fourth in last year’s World Cup at Meydan Racecourse in the United Arab Emirates and likely will be among the favorites. The 6-yearold is a three-time Eclipse Award winner and has earned more than $5 million.
