Third-place finisher in the Pegasus on Saturday, Gunnevera could now be pointed to the Dubai World Cup in March. Trainer Antonio Sano told drf.com that the 4-year-old son of Dialed In exited the $16 million race in good order.
“I am so proud of my horse,” Sano said. “I know some people said the horse was working very slow, but that’s how I train him. He’s never been a flashy work horse. I train him to finish while also two-minute-licking him between works during the week. He’s older now and a different horse than he was last year. He’s put on weight, so now I train him a little differently.”
