Irish trainer Brindon Walsh said that the taste of winning the Dubai World Cup title is magical, with the coach aspiring to record his third victory of the evening, after winning the UAE Derby in 2019 with Plus Q Parfait and Al Quoz Sprint in the 2021 edition with Extravagant Kid.

On March 25, Walsh is looking forward to a repeat of victory in the Al Quoz Sprint 1 Sprint over 1200,<>m turf, and Brinden is counting on Casadero's services to deliver on his ambitions and return to glory on Dubai World Cup nights.

Brinden commented on the importance of victory in the evenings of the «Dubai World Cup» by saying in press statements: «I carry beautiful memories of Dubai, especially that the taste of victory in the championships of the evening (Dubai World Cup) is like magic, and incomparable, after I have already tasted victory on two occasions, the first came in (UAE Derby) 2019, the championship dedicated to horses of the second category (Group 2), and the awarding of points paves the way to the famous (Kentucky Derby) America, and followed in 2021 the title of the speed championship (Al Quoz Sprint) for horses of the first category (Group 1) , and the aspirant to repeat this experience in the 2023 edition with the horse (Casadero)."

He explained: «Many details I memorize in my imagination about my first victory in the evenings (Cup) in Dubai four years ago, with the horse (Plus Q Parfait) in a victory that came like magic after the horse managed to make his way in the last meters towards victory.

"I didn't have the chance to fly to Dubai in 2021 and accompany Extravagant Kid, who put in a great performance to win the Al Quoz Sprint by half a length over his nearest rival, but it was a great joy to snatch another win on Dubai Cup nights."

On the chances of competing in the 2023 edition, Walsh said: "There are similarities between Extravagant Kid and Cazadero, despite the age difference and experience between them, as Extravagant Kid was crowned in Al Quoz Sprint at the age of eight, compared to the age of five years for Cazadero, but the ambitions are high in the ability to win again due to Casadero's record of winning on three of his seven racing appearances, including his victory in the Narctical Stakes for Group 2 horses. , which took place at Canada's Woodbine track last summer."

"Although Casadero ran his last race over a shorter distance, all of his racing victories came over the 1200,<>m of the Al Quoz Sprint in Dubai."

Walsh pointed to the identity of the jockey who will take over Casadero on the evening of March 25, and said: "Tyler Gavaglione, winner of several Group One races, will take over Casadero in Dubai, and although this is the first time that Tyler has been ridden with a horse, the experience that the rider has in his long participation in the racing world, gives him competence in dealing with Casdairo's abilities."
