So that’s pretty much a full day. Four winners were for the British and Irish barns, including three from the first winning coach at the meeting. Monomoy Girl’s win in Distaff It was also a great moment, and then there was the Kentucky Derby winner Accuracy Classic landing.
It was a strange Breeders’ Cup in Covid’s time, but also a memorable one. I can’t wait to reconnect at Del Mar near San Diego in 12 months time – it’s one of the best-positioned tracks you might want to see, and hopefully there will be more spectators there. see it.
However, for now, it is time to be crowned from the Breeders’ Cup 2020.
Tom’s D’Etat was also disappointing – he only managed to hit one horse home.
Bob Baffert held the Classic record for three, and now four, after a decade at the turn of the century as he watched match after game beat.
Authentic is paid 4-1, while Random is 7-2 on the local pitch and Tiz The Law, who never threatens, is the one who loves being beaten 3-1.
John Velazquez, what a ride: all-out in Classic, is perfect. Can not be improved close enough if good enough but Velazquez did not give his opponent any chance to take down a serious challenge.
CLASSIC CUP RESULTS OF BREEDERS:
1. AUTHENTICATION, 2. Cannot be improved, 3. Global campaign
Authentication is still in the foreground, in the front, he will clear but here there can be No improvement
Authentication is still leading from Maximum Security and Tiz Law
They are approaching the gate for Breeders” The cup Classic, and started to enter the gate.
The sun is setting in Kentucky, four minutes until Classic and Tiz Law is still popular at 5-2. Tom’s D’Etat is 7-2 along with Can not be improved, and friends who are stable later Accuracy and Maximum security 5-1 and 9-2 respectively.
But he’s had two months since the Kentucky Derby, where he didn’t seem to like the track either (his two defeats were at Churchill).
Tom’s d’etat is another big runner. He’s second only to third Can not be improved at Whitney last time, but had stumbled off the counter and still only lost two and a half in length.
I love Tiz Law for this. I think he is in a slightly lower form during the Derby, which came just a month after he beat Travers at Saratoga in good form:
And here Accuracy, another of the Baffert team, beat Tiz Law – Prefer current 5-2 score for Classic – at Derby Kentucky.
It’s a compelling innovation this year, heavy with runner Bob Baffert but also offering some compelling alternatives.
This is from Baffert Can not be improved beat out his steady companion Maximum security in the Great Again Stock program in Santa Anita.
And so, with 13 races in the book after two days of memorable action at Keeneland, we come to Classic. I love this race, as this passage on the Breeders’ Cup website explains.
Four out of four for British and Irish barns on the main card at the Breeders’ Cup – I’ll need to check, but I’m not sure that has happened before.
When things go well for visitors, it feels easy, but it will never be under estimate just how difficult it is to prepare a race horse to the kind of qualification required to win. at the Breeders Cup from a few thousand miles away.
So bow your heads, Kevin Ryan, James Fanshawe, Dermot Weld and Aidan O’Brien. And Fanshawe and O’Brien also won the Champion Hurdle, which was a great moment to mark that my colleague Chris Cook was at Wincanton earlier today.
BREEDERS CUP TURF RESULTS:
1 TARNAWA, 2. Magical, 3. Channel Maker.
Magical has finished second with Channel Maker, but Tarnawa great.
Colin Keane replaced Christophe Soumillon at Tarnawa when Soumi failed the Covid test earlier this week. He was on the right spot, two behind him at the end of the road, but she went there with something in case.
Tarnawa came here, trying to chase Channel Maker, she went there, Tarnawa and Colin Keane beat Turf
Magically with a bit of driving to keep its place, Channel Builder now has two clear chunks to go back to
Still leading Channel Maker, will launch the final circuit
Channel Maker leads the way, Magical is close to United,
One minute to place your bet on Turf, I’ll be with Mogul for a while United considered the best on the US team by local supporters.
It was a stunning sight as the Turf field began in the late afternoon sun in Kentucky. Mogul and Miracle especially looks in a shiny state.
Four minutes to go, a clean sweep for prospective Europeans in today’s four turf races – but which of our challengers will get it done?
Miracle, according to supporters – she has just been replaced Tarnawa as favorites.
This is Mogul Winning the Grand Prix de Paris, the tournament that seemed to have set him up for the Arc, but was denied participation by a bizarre series of situations involving preconfigured feeds.
However, that meant he was still fresh, and his final start was an impressive loss to a horse then ran a second run in the Arc.
Early betting cannot be separated Tarnawa, winners of Prix Vermeille and Prix de l’Opera, and Miracle, has won Group One seven times, with the score 3-1. Tarnawa, in fact, it was recently considered the narrow favorite to bring Dermot Weld the first Breeders’ Cup winner.
That is Turf next, and a great chance for Europe to finish sweeping today’s races on the pitch.
It’s also a chance for the man of the Pierre-Charles Boudot era to complete the epic treble, as he rides Mogul to Aidan O’Brien.
Ryan Moore will do his best to prevent him from following his stable companion Miracle, when Lord North and Tarnawa are also giant players. Mehdaayih and bystanders Donjah, from Germany, while completing the European challenge Channel builder, opportunity 18-1, is the lowest priced US-trained challenger.
Looking back at the replay, Swiss skydiver She stumbled out of the gate a bit and she had never been quite as good as her big rival since then. By the way, she finally came in seventh.
That was almost certainly the end of the line Monomoy Girl’s career, and she started her first job pass post after 14 of her 15 starts. She was beaten by the neck on her last start at the age of two, and downgraded to a second after being defeated. Midnight Bisou Equal to first grade in September 2018. What. A. Record.
