Breeders' Cup 2013: Breaking Down Results from Sprint
The 2013 Breeders' Cup has featured a number of exciting races this weekend, and the $1.5 million Sprint had a wild finish of its own.
The Sprint was won by Secret Circle, who is trained by Bob Baffert, ridden by Martin Garcia and owned by Mike Pegram, Karl Watson and Paul Weitman. Gentlemen's Belt was able to move up and take the lead early on, holding it for a while. However, the horse couldn't hold on, falling to third by the end.
I had a really good trip. My horse was outside and the whole field was inside of me. I took advantage from there because I knew I had the best horse. I saw the other horse (Laugh Track) coming up on the outside and my horse started messing around, but by then it was too late to beat me.
This was the second win for both Baffert and Garcia, and Secret Circle earned $800,000 for the victory. The two were also able to win the Juvenile with New Year's Day.
This was just another great race for the four-year-old colt, who has six career wins. He came in second in his two other career races. It was also just the second race for Secret Circle since April 2012, with the other coming in October.
Baffert and Garcia will also be working with Paynter in the Classic. The horse has one of the more interesting stories, as he nearly died from colitis more than a year ago.
It was certainly a wild finish to the Sprint, and it was just one of many on both Friday and Saturday. Most people will be more concerned about the Classic, but the Sprint provided its own share of drama and action.
