Dubai Gold Cup to be rerun after horse goes down

Dubai Gold Cup to be rerun after horse goes down

The $1 million Dubai Gold Cup race will be rerun later Saturday after being halted when a horse owned by the stables of Dubai ruler Sheik Mohammed went down injured.
Officials at the Meydan Racecourse say the rerun will take place after the $10 million Dubai World Cup, the world's richest horse race.
Godolphin's Fox Hunt _ the second favorite at 3-1 _ was 300 meters (yards) into the 3,200-meter Gold Cup when it tumbled to the ground, throwing jockey Silvestre De Sousa. The horse briefly attempted to get up but then fell to the ground.
De Sousa was unhurt while the nature of Fox Hunt's injury was unclear but appeared serious.
Stewards stopped the race because there was not enough time to move the horse from the track.
