Vineyard haven entered into UAE Guineas

Vineyard Haven(Lido palace) was entered into Thursday's Two thousand Guineas at Nad al Sheba. The one mile race is the first start for the colt since being bought by Sheikh Mohammed Al Maktoum. Other horses entered include Desert Party, Regal Ransom, Blues and Rock, Rocksoff, Naval officer, and Jose Adan. Vineyard haven, Desert Party, Regal Ransom, Jose Adan and City style are nominated to the Triple Crown. Meanwhile Midshipman is expected to make his debut in the March 5 Al Bastalkiya. No disrespect but, I do think running Midshipman and,Vineyard Haven in Dubai for their preps for the Derby is a bad idea. It hasn't worked before so I don't see how this year is any different. Just keep the horses in the United States. It makes sense if you ask me.
401 horses were nominated to the Triple Crown this year. Here's a link to the list.

Here is the workout for today.
