Accelerate wins Breeders' Cup Classic at Churchill Downs

Accelerate wins Breeders' Cup Classic at Churchill Downs

I just wanted to get a position because I was way out there.

"We're all good", Miller confirmed. So much has gone into the whole year and it became an emotional roller-coaster ride for Prince Khalid.

Accelerate took care of that notion. He covered the 1 ¼ mile distance in 2 minutes, 2.93 seconds to extend his lifetime earnings to $5,005,000. He said he will consider "next year, more than I ever have", contesting Royal Ascot with Newspaperofrecord. "Once she got the front, she started flicking her ears and looked nice and relaxed", said Servis.

Sadler's calm demeanor hasn't often changed, even as that zero in the win column grew bigger.

The Breeders' Cup is an annual event. "I can feel that he was getting nicely comfortable".

The race isn't just meaningful for Sadler.

It would be hard to dethrone Justify, racing's 13th Triple Crown victor, for the award, but the 3-year-old retired this summer after just six lifetime races against his own age group.

When a friend who owned some horses asked Servis to take some of them to NY for the winter months until racing returned to New Jersey at Monmouth Park in 2002, the then-43-year-old agreed. "I don't believe the horse has been let to run yet".

Game Winner will hope to follow in the footsteps of Juvenile winners Nyquist in 2015 and Street Sense in 2006, who went on to win the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs the next year. "With what he accomplished, in such a short amount of time, he deserves Horse of the Year", Cox said. "Amazing, I've no words to say how brilliant she is", he said. Despite being drunk enough to think this was a good idea, he managed to make his way onto an actual horse before anyone noticed he shouldn't be there.

Enable stormed from the pack in the final 100 meters at Paris Longchamp last month and held on for a narrow win as the fast-finishing Sea of Class chased her down.

Following back-to-back Breeders' Cup wins by Roy H and Stormy Liberal and a history-making win in the $4 million Breeders' Cup Turf by 4-year-old European super filly Enable (GB), the first horse to win the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe and the Longines Turf in the same year, Accelerate's victory in the $6 million Breeders' Cup Classic capped a ideal day of racing at Churchill Downs in the 35th Breeders' Cup World Championships. "Someone did tell me that they thought that Monomoy Girl's campaign was the most impressive by a 3-year-old filly since Rachel Alexandra".

"She was wonderful", said trainer John Gosden. 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. "She's fantastic. She's very special".

It was not a pretty victory as Game Winner, ridden by jockey Joel Rosario, bumped into Knicks Go while making his move from the outside down the stretch. It was the first Breeders' Cup victory for New York-based conditioner John Servis. "She was training like a monster and she ran like a monster".

Dettori, winning his fifth Turf, exclaimed: "She's conquered America and is the first one to do it!"
