Queen Of Bermuda fourth at Breeders' Cup

Adjust Comment Print

The wait is over for highly respected trainer John Sadler, but he wasn't all that interested in talking about winning his first Breeders' Cup race after years of trying.

The race lacked the retired 3-year-old star and left a wide-open field, which the 5-year-old chestnut horse eventually overtook after breaking from the No. 14 post as the favorite. She has nine wins and a third in 10 starts and more than $8.5 million in career earnings.

"It was a wonderful stretch run between two great fillies and two great jockeys".

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. Gosden and Prince Khalid are not ruling out a bid for an historic third straight Arc win next year.

This year, the Breeders' Cup is being held at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky. Fabre's defending champion Talismanic will be inside Enable in stall one.

2015 Breeders' Cup victor and fellow Triple Crown champion American Pharaoh, another Bob Baffert-trained horse, highlights the weekend undercard. Ridden by Frankie Dettori, the four-year-old raced outside, never far from the lead.

Mr. and Mrs. William K. Warren Jr.'s City of Light, front-running victor of Saturday's Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile, is scheduled to return to trainer Michael McCarthy's Southern California base early Monday morning. "As a 5-year-old, he's come out of those Classic races in good shape physically and continued right on".

"It's the kickback [that is the problem] and, if the track is sloppy, that's probably a no-go", Gosden told reporters at Churchill Downs. "The ground spoiled it for my filly - I know she likes soft, but she found it hard". We've brought a lot of horses here, so I think we should get some credit for that. One negative for the dominant California five-year-old is the draw - he will come from the outside stall 14.

Queen Of Bermuda “ran a blinder” to place fourth at the prestigious Breeders Cup at Churchill Downs, Kentucky, yesterday.

Sheik Mohammed's elite operation still had Saeed Bin Suroor's Thunder Snow to run in the feature $6m Classic before he and Appleby flew to Australia to saddle runners in Tuesday's Melbourne Cup.

A year and a half later he seeks redemption on the heels of a victory in the Dubai World Cup.

One notable absence from the Classic is Triple Crown victor Justify, whom trainer Bob Baffert retired in July because of an ankle ailment.
