Zedan Racing, Winstar Farm and Commonwealth Thoroughbreds’ Country Grammer relaxed just off the pace in the $12-million Dubai World Cup (G1) at Meydan, went after the leaders in the stretch, took the lead at the 100m mark and was best by a length and three quarters at the wire. It’s the second grade one stakes win for the 5-year-old son of Tonalist, second to fellow OBS Spring Sale graduate Emblem Road last time out in the recent Saudi Cup (G1). Trained by Bob Baffert, he has compiled a 10-4-2-1 career record and earned $10,851,685 to date. At the 2019 OBS Spring Sale, he sped an Under Tack quarter in :21 flat before he was purchased for $450,000 by Bradley Thoroughbreds LLC, Agent, out of the Wavertree Stables consignment. watch his under tack video

Country Grammer is the third OBS graduate to win the Dubai World Cup (G1). Silver Charm was the first in 1998 followed by Roses in May in 2005.
