- Highland Reel hands Aidan O’Brien a runaway Breeders’ Cup Turf win
- Beholder edges Songbird by a nose in Breeders’ Cup Distaff for the ages
A great race to end a memorable weekend. We will hopefully reconvene next year at Del Mar, when Arrogate may attempt to win a second Classic.
Thanks for joining me over the last two days, this is Greg Wood signing off at Santa Anita.
And the final word goes to Mike Smith, whose three wins over the last two days won him the Shoemaker Award for the outstanding jockey at the meeting. He now has 25 Breeders’ Cup wins in all, including four in the Classic.
This horse has run only five times, and he’s beaten California Chrome. That’s incredible.
