>>NOTE: The results of the Iraqi Prime Minister Handicap (reported Saturday) were premature. The correct order of finish is as follows: 1.) United States 2.) Iraqi Governing Council 3.) United Nations. After a review of the race, it was determined that United States, ridden at the last-minute by Iraqi expatriot Iyad Allawi, won after all. Perhaps the biggest surprise, however, turned out to be the competitiveness of Governing Council, which had also been trained by the Americans.
The next race, scheduled for today or tomorrow, is the President’s Cup. With it’s poor showing, United Nation’s is not expected to be a factor. The real drama, though, is whether Governing Council can find a way to finally finish on top.
