DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) -- African Story won the $10 million Dubai World Cup by 2 ? lengths Saturday in the world's richest horse race.

The Godolphin horse is owned by Dubai ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. With Silvestre De Sousa onboard, the seven-year-old gelding is the sixth winner for trainer Saeed bin Suroor.

Starting from post six, African Story caught up with Mukhadram with 200 meters to go. Mukhadram was second and another Godolphin horse, Cat O'Mountain, was third.

Notably, the race did not feature any American horses and connections, who have triumphed in eight of the previous 18 Dubai World Cups, including last year by Animal Kingdom.
