  • Game Winner winning the Grade 1 American Pharoah Stakes at Santa Anita

"These races are hard to win".

Buick had to endure the suspense of a stewards' enquiry after contact between his mount and Uncle Benny right before the wire.

"To me, he's the Horse of the Year, no doubt", Sadler said. "He really jumped well and gathered his stride very quickly".

There was some bumping and grinding for Game Winner on the way to victory in the $2 million Breeders' Cup Juvenile. The $6 million Cup Classic is the marquee race that could help determine which thoroughbred ends up as Horse of the Year. "That's a good sign", he said.

A whopping $6 million was at stake in the race, a year-end showcase held in 2018 at the home of the Kentucky Derby. "We want to thank our gracious hosts from Churchill Downs, the greater Louisville community, our fans around the world as well the owners and breeders who participate in our racing programs for an incredible week capped by two extraordinary days of racing". Front-running youngsters had things their own way in the first three races of the day. The two fillies went through the stretch away from the rest of the field in their own private match race with the John Gosden trainee showing her enormous class at the end.

Jaywalk punched her ticket to the Breeders" Cup with a victory in the "Win and You're In' Grade 1 Frizette at Belmont Park. "I was on the outside and had to use him a little bit. She traveled well over here, she's settling in and eating and drinking well, which is very important, and I am liking the way she moves". She just runs them off their feet ... Asked if the filly now is a superstar, Brown said, "She is on her way".

Ultimate combines many stages and new items, with gameplay that makes it easy for players of all skill levels to jump in. Immediately, Street Fighter's Ken is shown as an Echo Fighter, and Pokemon's Incineroar are joining the fight.

That gave trainer John Sadler his first Breeders' Cup win since his initial starter 30 years ago. "Very impressed with what he did", said Castellano, who rode his ninth Breeders' Cup victor.

"He was very professional", Castellano said. Ridden by Javier Castellano, the four-year-old colt took command shortly after the start and pulled away in the stretch while 4-5 favourite Catalina Cruiser struggled on the outside and finished well back. "Fantastic way to start", Pletcher said.

"They either take it or they don't".

The thrilling finish in the $2 million, Grade 1 race capped a first day devoted to 2-year-olds at the season-ending world championships.

Wells-Rody was reportedly drunk when he made his way into a private area, got on a horse, and rode it out of the tunnel, and into the track entrance.
