DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Kentucky Derby winner Animal Kingdom and Royal Delta are in a full field of 13 horses for Saturday's $10 million Dubai World Cup.

Animal Kingdom drew the No. 12 post on Wednesday while Royal Delta — bidding to become the first filly to win the race — leaves from No. 8. Dullahan goes from No. 3.

The early favorite is Hunter's Light, drawn in the No. 4 post.

Also entered were African Story, Capponi, Kassiano, Meandre, Monterosso, Planteur, Red Cadeux, Side Glance and Treasure Beach.

The nine-race World Cup card has a total purse of $27.25 million.
