World Pool Sees Super Saturday Increases

Dubai’s Super Saturday meeting at Meydan Racecourse saw World Pool’s globally commingled turnover increase over 2022’s figure by HK$18.9m (approx. $2.4m) to HK$224,802,517 (approx. $28.6m) across the eight races. The Ras Al Khor conditions race, which was won by Godolphin’s Al Suhail (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}], saw the highest jump to HK$33,518,763 (approx. $4.3m) in total monies bet on the contest.

Both Group 1 races on the card saw figures surpassing HK$30m, with the G1 Jebel Hatta raking in HK$33,366,784 (approx. $4.3m) and the G1 Al Maktoum Challenge R3 drawing HK$31,560,463 (approx. $4m).

“World Pool continues to grow year-on-year and we couldn’t be happier to exceed 2022’s Super Saturday turnover total,” Sam Nati, Head of Commingling at the Hong Kong Jockey Club, said. “Having runners from Hong Kong engaged at the meeting really added to the international flavour that is World Pool.

“We continue to see unbelievable comparative value and deep liquidity wherever World Pool goes.”

Salute The Soldier (Ger) (Sepoy {Aus}] won the Al Maktoum Challenge R3 for a second time and in doing so, the Bhupat Seemar-trained 8-year-old became 2023’s fourth World Pool Moment of the Day winner, with his groom taking home a cheque for HK$40,000 as well as entry into the World Pool Moment of the Year competition.

World Pool will be back in operation for the Dubai World Cup meeting on Saturday, Mar. 25.
