Jet Set Racing Stable's Chilean Group 1 winner Super Corinto (Arg) (Super Saver), originally among a bulky field entered for the G2 Godolphin Mile at Meydan Mar. 25, will instead run in the $12-million G1 Dubai World Cup, it was announced Friday.

Trained by Amador Sanchez, the Southern Hemisphere 4-year-old colt began his career at Monterrico Racetrack in Peru, winning three of his four starts, before finishing second to O'Connor (Chi) (Boboman) in the G1 Longines Gran Premio Latinoamericano at Hipodromo Chile last Apr. 2. A 1 1/4-length winner of the G1 Gran Premio Hipodromo Chile going 11 furlongs on the dirt four weeks later, turning the tables on O'Connor, the bay was runner-up in a one-mile allowance/optional claimer at Gulfstream Park Nov. 12 before going one better over 8 1/2 furlongs Dec. 8. He was an intended runner in the Jan. 28 GI Pegasus World Cup Invitational S., but was forced to miss the race due to an Equine Herpesvirus outbreak in his barn.

Super Corinto is one of two probable World Cup night starters for Sanchez, who is also set to be represented by Super Ocho (Chi) (Dubai Sky), a multiple Group 2 winner in Chile and third in last year's GII Santa Anita Sprint Championship. He will be a decided longshot in against the likes of Gunite (Gun Runner), Sibelius (Not This Time) and a strong Japanese contingent in the G1 Dubai Golden Shaheen.
