DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) - Since opening its doors in 2010, the Meydan Racecourse and its all-weather surface has not been kind to American horses in the $10 million Dubai World Cup.

They have never won the world's richest horse at Meydan despite sending several top horses including Game on Dude last year and three-time Eclipse Award winner Gio Ponti in 2011. American horses regularly won on the old dirt track, taking eight of the first 14 races.

But Saturday's race could be different.

Led by 2011 Kentucky Derby winner Animal Kingdom, the American entrants in the 13-horse field are the strongest ever. Trainer Bill Mott has returned with two-time Eclipse winner Royal Delta, and Pacific Classic winner Dullahan is entered.
