In the presence of H.H. Sheikh Saud bin Rashid Al Mu'alla, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Umm Al Qaiwain, H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, presented the AED 250.000 gold cup to Lucky Pulpit, owner of California Chrome, which won the richest horse race in the world - the $10 million Dubai World Cup at the 21st edition of the race held at Meydan Racecourse.

Present also was H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai and UAE Minister of Finance.

Sheikh Hamdan congratulated the owner on the dominant, track-record setting performance in the 2000 metre race. H.H also honoured trainer Art Sherman and jockey Victor Espinoza.

The winner's share of $6 million pushed California Chrome's career earnings to $12,532,650, eclipsing 2008 Dubai World Cup winner Curlin ($10,501,800) as the US all-time leading money earner. – Emirates News Agency, WAM -
