Breeders' Cup Results and Photos
What an exciting day of racing! Nice mix of longshots and favorites and no breakdowns to mar the day. Most exciting story of the day had to be Da Hoss coming back from a two year layoff to win his second Breeders' Cup Mile with only an allowance race and workouts as a prep. The Classic was a bit sad as Skip Away finished 6th which cost him the earnings record and Gentlemen was eased and listed as DNF in the chart.
Below are some photos from my digital camera with results and links to the full charts.
The finish of the Juvenile with Answer Lively taking the lead.
Silverbulletday cruising to an impressive win.
Reraise took then wire to wire.
Da Hoss coming up on the inside of Hawksley Hill in route to a narrow victory.
Escena took command at the start and held off a determined Banshee Breeze by a nose.
Buck's Boy went right to the lead, got some nice slow early fractions, and had plenty left to hold off the late closing Yagli.
Coronado's Quest led as they passed by the first time but he was only able to hang on for 5th place as Awesome Again proved he was for real by rallying from 8th to win. Swain looked the winner at the head of the stretch but bore out and lost too much ground.
