Musical Romance wins the 2011 Breeders' Cup Filly and Mare Sprint at Churchill Downs

A field of 12 older fillies and mares went to post in the $1 million Sentient Jet Breeders' Cup Filly and Mare Sprint (G1), a 7 furlong trip around one turn of the main track. Test Stakes (G1) winner Turbulent Descent was sent off as the 7-5 favorite over 3-1 Switch, a close third in the Thoroughbred Club of America Stakes (G1) at Keeneland, and 7-1 Pomeroys Pistol, winner of the Gallant Bloom (G2) at Belmont.

15-1 Golden Mystery led the field out of the chute and down the backstretch through fractions of 22.40 and 45.71 while stalked by 20-1 Musical Romance and 33-1 Tamarind Hall. On the turn, Golden Mystery tired allowing Turbulent Descent to lead to the 1/8 pole. The favorite also tired as Musical Romance came back to win by 1 1/4 length over Switch in 1:23.47 over the good main track. It was a head back to 28-1 Her Smile third.
