JUVENILE FILLIES: TAKE CHARGE BRANDI

Longshot TAKE CHARGE BRANDI won the US$2 million ($2.5 million) Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies, giving trainer D. Wayne Lukas his sixth success in the race and a record 20th Breeders' Cup victory.

The 60-1 outsider, ridden by Victor Espinoza, swept to the front out in the 1,700m race for two-year-old fillies and won by half a length over Top Decile.

Wonder Gal was third in the field of 12.

FILLY AND MARE TURF: DAYATTHESPA

DAYATTHESPA won the US$2 million Breeders' Cup Filly and Mare Turf, as last year's winner Dank could only finish fourth.

In a race with a strong European presence, headed by the Sir Michael Stoute-trained Dank, the trans-Atlantic raiders again came up empty.

Dayatthespa, ridden by Javier Castellano and trained by Chad Brown, led all the way in the 2,000m race on turf to beat the Brown-trained Stephanie's Kitten by one and a quarter lengths.

FILLY AND MARE SPRINT: JUDY THE BEAUTY

JUDY THE BEAUTY held off Better Lucky by a head to win the Filly and Mare Sprint and gave trainer Wesley Ward a second victory in as many days and jockey Mike Smith yet another Breeders' Cup win.

Smith, already owner of the most Breeders' Cup wins of any jockey, took his tally to 21 in the US$1 million, 1,400m race on the dirt track.

Ward, who saddled Juvenile Turf winner Hootenanny last Friday for his first Breeders' Cup win, had extra cause to celebrate as owner of Judy The Beauty.

TURF SPRINT: BOBBY'S KITTEN

BOBBY'S KITTEN surged late to win the US$1 million Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint in a photo-finish to give trainer Chad Brown his third winner in two days.

Reneesgotzip, ridden by Edwin Maldonado, had set a blistering early pace but was swallowed up at the top of the straight, with Bobby's Kitten emerging from the bunched field to seize the win in the 1,300m race by half a length from 7-2 favourite No Nay Never.

JUVENILE: TEXAS RED

TEXAS RED came up with a thrilling rally to win the US$2 million Breeders' Cup Juvenile over 1,700m on dirt and stamped himself the early favourite for next year's Kentucky Derby.

Part-owned and trained by Keith Desormeaux and ridden by the conditioner's brother Kent Desormeaux, the son of Afleet Alex went off at 13-1 and won in convincing style, pulling away to beat Carpe Diem by six and a half lengths.

CUP TURF: MAIN SEQUENCE

MAIN SEQUENCE stole the limelight from early favourite Flintshire with a storming late run from the outside to win the US$3 million Breeders' Cup Turf over 2,400m.

Expertly ridden by John Velazquez, the five-year-old gelding powered to the line to win by half a length over Flintshire, who also made a late strong surge.

MILE: KARAKONTIE

Long-shot KARAKONTIE won the US$2 million Breeders' Cup Mile, beating Anodin in a one-two finish for French-trained horses.

Karakontie, trained by Englishman John Pease in Chantilly, went off at 30-1 with Stephane Pasquier astride and beat the Andre Fabre-trained Anodin by a length. Karakontie became the first Japanese-bred horse to win a European classic when he won the French 2000 Guineas this year. -AFP.
