It's a rich weekend of racing in Saudi Arabia, culminating with the richest horse race in the planet, the $20 million Saudi Cup. Our Frisco Bash has the marquee race covered and sees KNICKS GO and CHARLATAN as the horses to beat.

Frisco left us six races before the Saudi Cup. Although information is limited for many horses, we'll do our best to rank the horses in the races leading up to the big one.

Race 1 - $1 Million Neom Turf Cup

Horse Racing Radar friends Randy Hill, Dean and Patti Reeves have CHANNEL MAKER in the 1 5/16 mile turf race. Admittedly, we are 100% biased and hope they win. We are a little concerned with the jockey change from Manuel Franco to Joel Rosario as Franco seemed to get the best out of CHANNEL MAKER.
