Afleet again won the marathon beating incredible odds set by the bookkeepers.

The odds on Afleet Again winning were 41–1. The win was one of the longest-priced winners in Breeders' Cup history.

The pick six results if this was in it would have busted nearly every single person betting that way.

This is an impressive story that is about underdogs taking place in a nation that loves the underdog.

Afleet Again came out of no where to break through the pack and win this race.

The race also had two horses pull up injured.

A U Miner reportedly has a bilateral fracture and Meeznah was fatigued. Both of the horses are European based horses.

Afleet Again is a horse that is going to be remembered from this years Breeders’ Cup at Churchill Downs.

It is one of the best stories to come out of the weekend so far and could possibly finish off being one of the most memorable moments.

Afleet Again pulled off a $500,000 win with the marathon race that started the day and it is going to be a very tough act to follow.

This makes people wonder what else possibly could be in store for the rest of Day 2. Will gamblers start picking some more long shots in the hopes of hitting it big if they missed out on Afleet Again’s victory?

This race may have set a precedent that will be a bit too hard to follow.
