Enable cements her place in racing folklore with Breeders' Cup Turf triumph

It was the fifth win in 10 starts for the Sir Michael Stoute-trained colt.

Rosario's 20 points put him six ahead of fellow NY rider Irad Ortiz Jr., who won the Juvenile Fillies Turf on Newspaperofrecord and finished second in the Juvenile Turf with Uncle Benny who is based in NY for trainer Jason Servis and owner Ara Aprahamian's Beach Haven Thoroughbreds.

Enable had to work for the historic success which saw her become the first Arc victor to follow up at the same year's Breeders' Cup.

Accelerate claimed his fourth race in a row and answered the question of if he could continue his roll after beating West Coast by 2 1/4 lengths in the Awesome Again Stakes at Santa Anita. It was the first Breeders' Cup victory for New York-based conditioner John Servis.

"She didn't quite come here in the form she would have previous year, but she's done it".

Servis was expecting a strong performance from his star filly.

Monomoy Girl stamped herself as the best three-year-old filly in many years with her win in the $2-million Distaff.

Game victor found himself chasing 40-1 long shot Knicks Go as the field turned onto the long Churchill Downs stretch and that one proved tough to reel in.

Game Winner's first three victories came in Southern California.

"He broke fine, but it looked like they took my spot and I had to go wide", said Rosario, who has eight Breeders' Cup titles after winning twice on Friday. He seemed like he didn't mind that. "I am just thankful to be back here. Turning for home, the more I rode him, the more he gave it to me". The $6 million Cup Classic is the marquee race that could help determine which thoroughbred ends up as Horse of the Year. Seeing his string, all Group One horses, in Indian file, a length between them like a military parade on the track on Thursday was up there with watching 40 horses heading to the first fence in the Grand National or the Derby field sweeping round Tattenham Corner; one of the great sights in racing. Sadler might have had the morning line favorite in the Breeders' Cup Classic, but he was beginning to wonder if it just wasn't his day.

Brown was full of praise for the budding superstar filly. Owner Seth Klarman said the name was taken, obviously, from the dam. "I was on the outside and had to use him a little bit". Obviously, this is a horse that's done everything we've asked, and she's done it really easy. "I have a great crew and a great team and we got it done". "I don't believe the horse has been let to run yet".

The big story from the Breeders' Cup Classic at Churchill Downs on Saturday is the horse that won't be there.

Accelerate aims to make it six wins in seven starts this year as the 5-2 favorite in the 1 1/4-mile headliner.

Breeders' Cup always goes a long way toward determining North American champions.

Those four standouts lead a contingent of 43 foreign-trained Breeders' Cup entries (44 if you count Quarteto de Cordas (BRZ), who will make his United States debut in the Turf for Ian Wilkes after racing in his native Brazil) that has the global barn bursting at the seams. The Godolphin homebred was piloted by William Buick for trainer Charles Appleby.

Stormy Liberal won the $1 million Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint at Churchill Downs on Saturday, repeating his triumph in the same race at Del Mar previous year.
