DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) - American-bred Lines of Battle held off Elleval and fast-finishing Secret Number to win the $2 million UAE Derby on Saturday.

Shuruq was fastest out of the gates but was passed by Law Enforcement after 400 meters. Lines of Battle then took the lead, only to be passed at the 800-meter mark by the American-bred Snowboarder.

But Snowboarder faded and Lines of Battle took charge down the stretch, withstanding a challenge from Elleval and favorite Secret Number to win by 1 1/2 lengths and give trainer Aidan O'Brien a second consecutive win in this event.

The UAE Derby is part of a nine-race World Cup card that has a total purse of $27.2 million, including the $10 million Dubai World Cup.
