Accelerate wins Breeders' Cup Classic at Churchill Downs

  • Roaring Lion- faces tough task in Breeders' Cup Classic

"I know she likes soft, but she found it hard".

Game Winner's latest triumph included bumps along the way. Ben Glass, on behalf of owners Gary and Mary West, paid $110,000 for Game Winner from Lane's End, agent. Speaking to the colt's caretaker and exercise rider Joseph Kington at Churchill Downs on Thursday morning, he expressed the stable staff's honest desire to provide the family with an uplifting result in the midst of the awful tragedy.

Delgado said Christian's on-site presence helps horsemen with any level of interest in Breeders' Cup, informing them on everything from eligibility to purses to what Breeders' Cup has to offer and what to expect in making the trip. Frankie was determined to stay wide for the better ground, but Hunting Horn was attending us all the way and then Ryan Moore slipped up our inner on Magical.

He added with a chuckle, "At the eighth pole, I was thinking about some roses". To win the Santa Anita Handicap (in March) was for me probably one or two on my bucket list. He never really was challenged in any of those races. Signalman was a length back in third.

Stormy Liberal was second in the Al Quoz Sprint in March and Roy H was third in the Dubai Golden Shaheen. The favorite, Bellafina, raced right behind the victor into the stretch but ran out of gas and was all out to finish fourth. Cox reported that his star filly, who is all but assured the 3-year-old filly championship after her win Saturday, came out of the race well and would be given a few days to "relax and chill" before any future plans are made. She soon settled and stalked the pace from mid-pack while her Chad Brown stablemate A Raving Beauty posted lackadaisical opening fractions of:26.20, :51.81, 1:18.56, and 1:43.98 for the opening mile. She was the big attraction at this meeting, as much as anything because Americans love a good filly.

Jockey Joel Rosario said winning the 14-horse race, which featured a deep and talented field, was anything but easy. "She looks like she could do it again". His brilliance on Enable was to extract her from the rail and the worst ground, to which she was pinned by her low draw, and get her on the better going, which he had discovered by going wide out of necessity on Expert Eye.

Part owner Jonathan Green said the entire ownership team is excited about the chance of a Kentucky Oaks victor. But arguably as significant was the win of William Buick-ridden Line of Duty in Frday's $1m Juvenile Turf. He jumped from that to a victory in the Group 2 Prix de Conde at Chantilly in France Oct. 1 before heading for Kentucky.




The Newmarket-based Gosden will also saddle the impressive Roaring Lion in the showpiece $6 million Breeders' Cup Classic on the dirt. "He took it to them the whole way". He won his 1000 race in April, is winning at stunning 32 percent clip, and his stable has surpassed $6 million in earnings for the season. "I had to rein him back and basically restart the race", the rider said. "To be able to do that, he had to work harder". Jaywalk has now won four of her five career starts.

Like Mendelssohn, Thunder Snow has moments to live down at Churchill Downs, where he broke out of the gate in the 2017 Kentucky Derby like a rodeo bucking horse and finished last - the description on the official race chart of his performance: "rank, bucked, pulled up".

"She didn't quite come here in the form she would have a year ago, but she's done it". He had a great campaign and we're very proud of that. Obviously, this is a horse that's done everything we've asked, and she's done it really easy. He said he will consider "next year, more than I ever have", contesting Royal Ascot with Newspaperofrecord.

"We're watching where the rain is going, a little north of us at the moment, so you never know we might not get drowned".

- Bulletin opened the Breeders' Cup by pulling away to a 2 3/4-length victory over Chelsea Cloisters in the $1 million inaugural Juvenile Turf Sprint, earning a graded stakes win in just his second career start.

"It was a wonderful, wonderful stretch run between two great fillies and two great jockeys".

"He was very professional", Castellano said.
