Arc victor Enable eyes unprecedented double in Breeders' Cup Turf

Arc victor Enable eyes unprecedented double in Breeders' Cup Turf

"He's had more experience and he knows what's expected", said O'Brien, who has shipped Mendelssohn back and forth from Ireland to the United States for three more races since the Kentucky Derby.

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. "To be able to do that, he had to work harder".

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. She has run a very solid race again at group one level. The daughter of Cross Traffic went gate-to-wire under Rosario in the $2-million Juvenile Fillies, contested at 1 1/16 miles over the Churchill main, to win by a commanding 5 1/2 lengths in 1:43.62.

"This is a huge win for me", said Baffert, who second-guessed himself during Game Winner's rough start before his pupil recovered.

Jaywalk punched her ticket to the Breeders" Cup with a victory in the "Win and You're In' Grade 1 Frizette at Belmont Park.

Her biggest threat at Churchill Downs could be from Waldgeist, trained in Chantilly by Frenchman Andre Fabre, who was a close fourth behind Enable in the Arc. Amazing, I've no words to say how brilliant she is.

It's the desire of them, so we insist we want him. "He knew that from the beginning and he made a decision to stay". City , the defending League Cup champion, will play either Leicester or Southampton in the quarterfinals.

While Eurpean raiders Thunder Snow and Mendelssohn played their part in the showpiece race on dirt, it was Accelerate who prevailed under Joel Rosario to end trainer John Sadler's long wait for a win at the Breeders' Cup.

Meanwhile, Frankie Dettori believes "records are there to be broken" as Enable gears up for the feature Breeders' Cup Turf tomorrow.

"When Magical slipped up her inner, I thought, "This is the one we've got to beat", but she is mentally so strong and I think it was her mental strength as much as anything that brought her home in front". "He broke really well and was sharp".

"They either take it or they don't". Restless Rider was second and Vibrance third. She earned her 10th win from 11 career starts. Obviously, this is a horse that's done everything we've asked, and she's done it really easy.

Bulletin, trained by Todd Pletcher and ridden by Javier Castellano, opened the proceedings with a dominant victory in the $1 million Juvenile Turf Sprint. But it was not just the fact that Enable did something no other horse has been able to do before.
