Like I said, it has turned out to be a great race and the purse is better than the Classic in reality. I just don't see the point of making up fake numbers.
The point is to prevent Dubai from claiming the title of world's richest race and to disincentivize them from further jacking up the DWC purse.

No matter what they call it, Dubai is the real WORLD cup.
GP will NEVER come close to that.

The Pegasus Donn is as far as it goes!
And what is stopping Dubai from doing the exact same phony purse
thing as Franky is doing....other than class and integrity, that is.

Not necessarily. I bet lots of people- especially folks who are not industry insiders- just assume a $16 million purse is a $16 million purse.

Whuch is really all GP's marketing department needs.

You just are refusing to acknowledge reality. This isn't the Donn and it is a better race than the DWC. because horses hold off going to stud for it.

Well I remember the sheik said once, betting is not allowed in Dubai, so we call it Pick 6 contest and so on. Seems pretty cool to me.

Holding off horses going to stud makes it a better race???

So far, in its first two runnings, it's attracted the best fields of the year...this year's field is pretty damn awesome...and last year we had CC vs. Arrogate...

It's done its job thus far...I'm not going to complain too much from a fan perspective.

I'm not a track owner.
I don't have customers.

Hey, love the race - just don't pee on my boots and tell me it's raining. It is a fake purse. And I bet you it is mis-timed today.
Truly world-class.

Look, you guys need to get over this. It took putting up this kind of money to get the horses, to get the crowd, to get it on freaking NBC. So what if they have to make this palatable to the slot owners and worked with them to do so, tweaking it here, tweaking it there. They're trying to grow it into a mainstay and it's a huge idea in its infancy.

It doesn't affect a single one of you negatively. It doesn't harm the horses or racing. It's a good thing, giving a card that people are staying home to watch all day. So let it go already. No, we can't compete on an equal level with a man who takes the resources of a country as his own. But if this works, it may replace the DWC for Americans, keeping our runners here instead of losing up to half a year of racing in America after going to Dubai.

This is all good. Don't *itch about it.

What about putting on the DWC where basically it's only the home track for your own runners? Where many have to undergo severe travels? It's a great way for him to have a big advantage giving his own horses black type?

This has never occurred to anyone here? Just the nonsense that a $16m purse is a "lie" (which it's not, as it's the purse amount, period, no matter how far they pay out).

Two totally different things. And yes, it is a lie, even if you can't figure it out.

Boots? Cowboys don't whine. I envision you wear ballerina slippers.
