Bayern Holds Off Toast of New York in the
Bayern survives the challenge of Toast of New York by a neck and the
track stewards in the!
$5 Million Breeders' Cup Classic!
At 6-1 odds, the front
running Bayern was able to take
advantage of the track speed bias on Saturday to prevail in the biggest
horse race in the U.S. and give trainer Bob Baffert his first
Breeders' Cup Classic
holding off his main competition of Toast of New York and California
Chrome, he had to survive a stewards inquiry to the start of the race
where he came over on the race favorite Shared Belief!
stewards decided not to take him down because it was at the start of
the race coming from the gate. Of course the connections of the undefeated
Shared Belief did not agree with their decision as Shared Belief could do no
better than finish 4th.
Jockey Mike Smith said that start cost
him all chances of winning the race.
has been a lot of discussion that the stewards made the wrong decision.
Even though I had Toast of New York (18-1)
to win the race, I do agree with their decision!
It was the year of
3-year olds against older horses as they finished 1st - 6th.
It was also a very good
weekend for East Coast trainer Chad
Brown who won 3 of the Turf Divisions. He won the Filly & Mare Turf as
well as having the runner-up horse. He also had the winners in the Turf Sprint and Juvenile Fillies Turf

weekend for the European shippers as they were ONLY able to win (1)
Division - the Turf with Karakonite (JPN)!

In 2009 and 2008 the
Breeders' Cup were held at Santa Anita Park when the races were run
over a synthetic surface. In 2012 they got smart and switched back
to a true dirt surface.
This summer they did a
complete replacement of the dirt surface with NEW dirt that is similar
to that which is used at the Los Alamitos track. You will want to keep
an eye on the Fall meet races at Santa Anita to see how the new surface

straight Mile against
2008 Zenyatta won the Ladies

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
