Enable lives up to top billing in Breeders' Cup

Roaring Lion- faces tough task in Breeders' Cup Classic

Roaring Lion- faces tough task in Breeders' Cup Classic

Never far from the pace, Dettori angled Enable wide on the home turn - a shrewd move as the outside of the track was favoured throughout the meeting.

Trainer Mark Casse enjoyed his fifth career Breeders' Cup win when Shamrock Rose, a two-time stakes victor at Woodbine, edged out Chalon at odds of 25-1 in the $1-million Filly and Mare Sprint.

Monomoy Girl bolstered her case as the top 3-year-old filly by winning the $2 million Distaff. It was a tough race. "I thought coming into the straight when Ryan came up on her, we had a race on our hands".

Newspaperofrecord, with Irad Ortiz Jr.in the irons, won her first two starts by margins of 6 3/4 lengths and 6 1/2 lengths - the latter in winning the Grade II Miss Grillo at Belmont Park Sept. 30. She showed enormous courage, beating a very high-class filly, and it was interesting that they came well clear of the third. 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 vast class at the end.

"We've come out on top and full marks to our filly because she's been very courageous and mentally very strong". She did it today with sheer guts and determination.

History was against her though as no Arc victor had graduated to Breeders' Cup glory in the same season, but history was rewritten as she powered home. "He was keen to come here and has been rewarded".

Dettori, who rode her to victory in the famous race, is certain that her light workload in 2018 will help her to enter the record books. "I got a flawless trip", said Ortiz.

First VIDEO of Wreckage From Deadly Boeing 737 Plane Disaster Emerges
The folloiwng reports surface just a few years after Indonesia AirAsia Flight QZ8501 carrying 162 people crashed into the sea. The jet was a Boeing 737 MAX 8, which can carry up to 200 passengers, according to air tracking service Flightradar 24.

The hot prospect for the $3.3 million first prize in the one-and-a-quarter mile race - the same distance as the Kentucky Derby - is the John Sadler-trained Accelerate, a multiple victor at the top level in the US.

"I was looking for a big effort from her, but I didn't expect for her to go to the lead again. I wouldn't have let him come here if I didn't think he was mentally strong enough to handle it".

"He will take his time before deciding on her future, but whatever decision he makes will be the right one".

Ridden by Joel Rosario, Accelerate, sent off as the 5-2 favorite, sat four lengths back early in the 1 1/4-mile race.

O'Brien was magnanimous in defeat. For him to win all those great races, for me to win the Santa Anita Handicap, was probably No. 1 or 2 on my bucket list, being a California guy my whole life.

Reflecting on last night's defeat of his Nassau Stakes and Prix de L'Opera victor Wild Illusion, who will stay on training next year, Appleby thought she has been caught out by the 1m 3f trip.
