All of these races were broadcast on ESPN's "Racehorse Digest" , most of these races except the Dubai World Cup, Singapore Airlines International Cup, and the Prix De L'Arc De Triomphe had the race call by David Raphael, for the EWSRC telecast. Raphael was the English speaking race caller of the Hong Kong Jockey Club at the time of the Emirates World Series Racing Championship. Currently, Raphael is the racing analyst of Sky Racing Channel in his home country of Australia. In the 2001 Arlington Million, John Dooley's race call was broadcasted live on ESPN. However, Raphael's race call of the 2001 Arlington Million was broadcasted on ESPN's "Racehorse Digest". I want to ask the racing fans here in the United States to see what do you guys think about the Emirates World Series Racing Championship from 1999 thorough 2005?
