The 14-length victory — nearly double the record Dubai World Cup margin set last year by Curlin — was so comfortable that jockey Aaron Gryder patted the 6-year-old gelding’s neck 10 strides before the finish.

“This horse really showed everyone in the world how good he is,” Gryder said, then asked: “Who was second?”
