Breeders' Cup Mile: Expert Eye wins under Frankie Dettori

Breeders' Cup Mile: Expert Eye wins under Frankie Dettori

The two biggest prior victories of Midlantic-based trainer John Servis's career had come at Churchill Downs, and now it's the three biggest after Cash Is King and D J Stable's Jaywalk (Cross Traffic) went right to the front and never looked back en route to a dominant 5 1/2-length tally in the GI Tito's Handmade Vodka Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies.

"In favor of Enable she has only raced twice, is very fresh in herself and seems to have traveled over well", he said.

Kentucky State Police said in an arrest citation that Michael Wells-Rody, 24, "was manifestly under the influence of alcoholic beverages" when he "snuck into a restricted area he was not authorized to be in" and took off on a horse.

Jockeyed by Joel Rosario, Accelerate had some trouble getting into his gate before the big race but sped through the track when it mattered, delivering national prominence to a duo in Sadler and Rosario who rarely see the spotlight. "Turning for home, the more I rode him, the more he gave it to me". "When he took the lead, for a second he was waiting for other horses".

Even if he isn't recognized as this year's top thoroughbred, Accelerate all but assured his place as North America's best older horse.

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

A strong day for NY racing talent also featured recent Belmont Fall Meet leaders Chad Brown, Ortiz, Jr., and Klaravich Stables combine to win the $1-million Juvenile Fillies Turf with Newspaperofrecord. And Godolphin manager Hugh Anderson pointed out Godolphin has had four impressive 2-year-old winners in England, Ireland and France in the past few weeks so Sheik Mohammed's cupboard of 2019 Classic contenders is overflowing. She made her move at the top of the stretch at the same time as another European star, Magical. The 4-year-old filly has now won nine straight races and has two wins in the Arc de Triomphe on her resume.

While Eurpean raiders Thunder Snow and Mendelssohn played their part in the showpiece race on dirt, it was Accelerate who prevailed under Joel Rosario to end trainer John Sadler's long wait for a win at the Breeders' Cup.

Dettori was elated after the win, raising his fists in triumph. The three-year-old used a strong late burst to surge past Catapult at the wire at odds of 5-1. Jockey Florent Geroux collected his fifth win. He is owned by WinStar Farm, China Horse Club and SF Racing, all ownership partners in this year's Triple Crown victor Justify.

Woodbine Mile victor Oscar Performance broke poorly and finished last.

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. Justify, the 2018 Triple Crown victor, won't run in the marquee event of Breeders' Cup weekend. He won two again on Saturday with the same horses.

Stormy Liberal, a six-year-old gelding, joined Mizdirection (2012-13) as the only repeat victor of the race. A Baffert exacta with West Coast and McKinzie finishing first and second is a real possibility in this year's Classic.

The $2-million Filly and Mare Turf was billed as a battle between Europe and trainer Chad Brown and sure enough, Sistercharlie, one of Brown's five runners, defeated English-based Wild Illusion. "Everybody in Europe knows how good she is, so if she can come here and conquer America it would be something incredible".

Accelerate edged 30-1 Gunnevera, who finished second, and 14-1 Thunder Snow, who came in third.

Marie's Diamond, trained by Middleham's Mark Johnston, lines up in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf for colts and gelding later in the evening.
