The Kentucky Derby trail winds through Arkansas, California and Japan this weekend, while Thursday's action in Dubai went into the books as a potential preview for the rapidly approaching World Cup night.
The Presidents Day weekend also features the prestigious 7-furlong sprints at Laurel Park in Maryland, The grassy Buena Vista for fillies and mares at Santa Anita and the Grade III Razorback Handicap at Oaklawn Park.
The Global Sprint Challenge gets off and running in Australia on Saturday and Sunday's February Stakes at Tokyo is one of only two top-level dirt races in Japan.  Read more at source
