Breeders' Cup Day2 Exciting Championship Races....
Mucho Macho Man Wins Classic by a Nostril!
The $5 Million Classic proved again to be the most exciting Breeders' Cup races as Mucho Macho Man and Gary Stevens hold off Will Take Charge and the Euro invader Declaration of War in a photo finish!
After just missing last year to Fort Larned, Mucho Macho Man guided by Stevens were able to get revenge in the Breeders' Cup Classic.
After taking the lead from Fort Larned coming out of the final turn, he started to open up some in the stretch but Declaration of War and Will Take Charge kept coming after him as Mucho Macho Man was determined not to be passed as he won by a slight nose over Will Take Charge who was a head better than Declaration of War while Fort Larned finished 4th.
The favorite Game On Dude ran up front but then tired at the top of the stretch to finish a disappointing 9th. It was his 3rd attempt in the Classic.
Breeders' Cup Day 1 - Beholder Crushes Field in the Distaff!
Beholder denies Royal Delta her 3-peat in the Distaff. Princess of Sylmar finished last!
NO favorite won a Breeders' Cup race on day 1 an ONLY 1 second favorite won a race!
The Europeans won BOTH Turf races on Day 1.
A French import, London Bridge, won the Breeders' Cup Marathon with Mike Smith aboard.
Smith won 2 Championship races increasing his lead as the winning est jockey in Breeders' Cup history.
Goldencents took advantage of the track bias going gate-to-wire in the Dirt Mile as the second favorite.
Again, there was a definite dirt track bias favoring early speed. After the same occurring last year it is just unbelievable that the groundskeeper at Santa Anita Park could not eliminate the dirt surface bias to make the track play evenly for all type of runners!
The word is that trainers were complaining today and we may see a change in the bias for Day 2 tomorrow. Lets hope!!
The average payoffs for the Breeders' Cup races on Day 1 were: Win - $13.40 Exacta - $102 Trifecta - $777 Superfecta - $934 and 50 Cent pick 3 - $489.
The Undercard races had big UPSETS resulting in average payouts of: Win - $40.77 Exacta - $434 Trifecta - $1,065 Superfecta - $9,760.
Early Pick 4 paid $29,725 with the Late Pick 4 paying $403.
The Pick 6 paid $106,839.
There is a BIG Carryover of $891,813 into Day 2's Pick 5 Pool!

For the second consecutive year, the Breeders' Cup will be held at Santa Anita Park and marks the 30th Anniversary since the inception of the "Great Experiment" in championship horse racing which brings together the best horses from around the world!
This year will be the 2nd consecutive year the Breeders' Cup is held at Santa Anita Park. The 2-day race program includes 14 Breeders' Cup races worth $25 Million in prize money. It has also been announced that the 2014 races will also be held at Santa Anita Park and marks the first time ever the races will have been held at the same track for 3 consecutive years.
Breeders' Cup Friday will feature 5 Championship races starting with the Marathon and ending with the $2 Million Distaff(Ladies Classic) for Fillies and Mares at 1 1/8 miles. The 5 Friday races are all at a mile or longer and on both the Dirt and Turf surfaces!
Saturday will showcase the remaining 9 Breeders' Cup Championship races featuring the $5 Million BC Classic at 1 1/4 Miles. 4 of the races will be run on the Turf.
After only 2 Editions of the Juvenile Sprint, it has been dropped from the program.
The Classic Division is shaping up to be one of the MOST competitive and interesting editions with the likes of Game On Dude, with rider Mike Smith back on-board, Ron the Greek, Mucho Macho Man, Palace Malice, Paynter and last year's winner Fort Larned along with (2) Euro invaders Declaration of War and Planteur (IRE)!
(7) Runners Entered by Ken & Sarah Ramsey - (6) Sired by Kitten Joy!
In 2009 and 2008 the Breeders' Cup were held at Santa Anita Park when the races were run over a synthetic surface. Since then the track has been switched back to a true dirt surface which the races were held on last year.
Furthermore, this will be the 7th time that the races are held at Santa Anita Park and the 12th time they have been held in Southern California.
Previous Breeders' Cups held at Santa Anita were in 1986, 1993, 2003, 2008, 2009 and 2012.
Last year super horse Royal Delta won back-to-back Ladies Classic.
Jockey Mike Smith made Breeders' Cup history by winning his 16th Championship race on Royal Delta and with Mizdirection in the Turf Sprint for owner Jim Rome..
The Argentine Calidoscopio won the Marathon Division coming from way back to give vertan jockey Aaron Grydor his first ever Breeders' Cup win. Calidoscopio became the first Breeders' Cup winner from Argentina as well as the oldest horse to win a race - he was 9 years old.
We saw Wise Dan win the Mile Division while trouncing the Euro invaders and thus being named Horse of the Year!
A big surprise was seeing super S. Cal. trainer Bob Baffert getting shut out with all 9 of his starters. Look for Baffert to make up for it this year.
In 2009 we saw the UNDEFEATED mare Zenyatta take on the boys in the Classic as she came from dead last to catch Gio Ponti in mid-stretch to win and remain undefeated in 14 career races!
We also saw the mare Goldikova win her 2nd straight Mile against the boys.
2008 Zenyatta won the Ladies Classic with her patented run from last to first to keep her undefeated record intact. Also Curlin was attempting to win his 2nd Classic but came up short against the Euro invaders Raven's Pass and Henry the Navigator as he finished 4th after taking the lead at the top of the stretch!
In 2003 Richard Mandella became the 1st trainer to win 4 Breeders' Cup Championship Races in the same year. 2003 also gave us the First Ever Dead-heat in a Breeders' Cup race when Johar and High Chaparral hit the wire together in the BC Turf!
In 1993 we got the BIGGEST upset in the history of the Breeders' Cup when Arcangues won the Classic at 133-1 with Jerry Bailey riding. Arcangues was a European import and did not get bet by U.S. racing fans ... not even with Jerry Bailey riding!
What surprises will we see this year?

Do you feel that the horse racing industry takes WE the player for granted?
Then consider joining the Horse-players Association of North America (H.A.N.A.). Membership is FREE!
They are a grass roots Non Profit organization made up of horse-players just like you.
They are not happy with track management and horseman's groups. They are less than thrilled with what they are doing to the game that we love. Instead of promoting awareness of the sport and growing handle they have become bogged down with industry infighting and have completely forgotten something: The importance of the customer.
We are tired of the signal wars, exclusive ADW deals, excessive takeouts, breakage, trainers who are rewarded for cheating, an obsolete tote system, and an attitude that smacks of entitlement. We want open access to all track signals for all ADWs, takeouts that are competitive with other forms of gambling, the abolishment of breakage, severe penalties for trainers who cheat, and odds updates in real time.
But most of all we want those who run racing to recognize us. The player matters. The player is a stakeholder too. Without money bet by us players the game would cease to exist. We can effect change. We can bring racing back to the prominence it once held in people's hearts on a national level.
But it won't be easy and it won't come overnight. It's going to take vision, commitment, and effort. But change IS possible... IF we band together in numbers. We are an independent grass roots player's organization that desires change. Won't you join us?
