15th Dubai World Cup
Meydan, 27 March 2010
won by Glória de Campeão (BRZ)

The winner was Stud Estrela Energia's Brazilian-bred Glória de Campeão, a seven-year-old bay horse trained in France by Pascal Bary and ridden by T. J. Pereira. Glória de Campeão's victory was the first in the race for his jockey, trainer and owner and the first for a horse trained in France.

Glória de Campeão had been trained in Brazil in the early part of his career before being transferred to the Bary's French stable in 2007. Although based in France, he was campaigned internationally, racing in Singapore, the United States and Dubai, finishing second in the 2009 Dubai World Cup on dirt and winning the Singapore Airlines International Cup on turf. In the 2010 Dubai World Cup he started a 16/1 outsider and won by a nose from the South African gelding Lizard's Desire, with the Godolphin runner Allybar a short head away in third. The 100/30 favourite Gitano Hernando finished sixth of the fourteen runners.[1]
