    The 2013 Breeders’ Cup Classic: Recap of the Event

    The Breeders’ Cup World Championships is a two-day meet that brings together some of the best racehorses in action today. Fourteen races – celebrating milers, turf specialists, juveniles and classic-distance runners, among others – offer over $25M in purse money and will grant the winners some of the most prestigious titles in horse racing. Often, the winner of the richest race on the card – the $5M Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1) – is bestowed Horse of the Year honors.

    In the 2013 Breeders’ Cup – held at Santa Anita Park – European horses won four of 14 events: Outstrip won the Juvenile Turf and Chriselliam won the Juvenile Fillies Turf on Friday, while Dank won the Filly & Mare Turf and Magician won the Turf on Saturday. Three titles were successfully defended: Groupie Doll won the Filly & Mare Sprint, Mizdirection captured the Turf Sprint and Wise Dan won the Mile. A couple of 3-year-olds defeated older horses: in the Dirt Mile (Goldencents) and in the Marathon (London Bridge). A steward’s inquiry decided the outcome of the Juvenile Fillies, with Ria Antonia and She’s a Tiger ending up one-two. Secret Circle came up big in the Sprint after an 18-month gap between races. And some upsets took place: New Year’s Day beat Havana in the Juvenile, Beholder upset two-time champ Royal Delta in the Distaff and Mucho Macho Man finished well ahead of Game On Dude in the Classic.
