Here is a good one. A comparison between our Sun and VY Canis Majoris. Situated in the constellation Canis Major about 3,900 light years from Earth, this star is *one of the largest main-sequence star we know of in our galaxy (although another heavyweight is in the process of forming). The stellar titan was first observed over 200 years ago, and for many years afterwards, it was suspected to be a part of a binary star system.

5. 99% of our solar system's mass is the sun.


Our star, the Sun, is so dense that it accounts for a whopping 99% of our entire solar system. That's what it allows it to dominate it gravitationally. Technically, our Sun is a "G-type main-sequence star" which means that every second, it fuses approximately 600 million tons of hydrogen to helium. This means that it also converts about 4 million tons of matter to energy as a byproduct.
Being the type of star that the Sun is, it also means that when it dies, it will become a red giant and envelop the earth and everything on it. But don't worry: That won't happen for another 5 billion years.

Breeders' Cup Classic

Bayern survives inquiry, wins BC Classic


ARCADIA, Calif. – A Breeders’ Cup Classic that was set up to be a clean-cut title-decider for Horse of the Year and champion 3-year-old male instead had a wholly unsatisfying ending Saturday at Santa Anita, where Bayern led from start to finish after clobbering several rivals at the start but was left the winner by the stewards after a lengthy inquiry.

Bayern ($14.20) held off Toast of New York to win by a nose, with California Chrome another neck back in third. But immediately leaving the gate, Bayern took a left-hand turn, the incident appearing to bother Shared Belief, V. E. Day, and Moreno, who was perhaps the only horse who could have challenged Bayern for the early lead.

Kim Sawyer, who along with Scott Chaney and Tom Ward are Santa Anita’s stewards, said the inquiry focused on the contact between Bayern and Shared Belief, who finished fourth.

“When the contact occurred at the start, according to the rules, we thought the horse was not cost a better placing,” Sawyer said of Shared Belief’s placing.

She said the stewards believed Moreno, who finished last, came out and contributed to the incident.

She said the decision by the stewards was unanimous.

Ninety minutes after the race, the California Horse Racing Board released a statement from Chaney that said, in part, “The incident occurred in a part of the race where the horses interfered with were not cost the opportunity to place where they were reasonably expected to finish.”

Bayern, afforded the opportunity to get to the front without pressure from Moreno, set fractions of 23.12 seconds, 46.44, 1:10.22, and 1:34.16 before completing 1 1/4 miles on the fast main track in 1:59.88 in a race that saw 3-year-olds sweep the first six spots in the field of 14.

Toast of New York was second throughout in an admirable performance in his first try on dirt. He also veered left 100 yards into the race and caused a second incident that also appeared to hinder Shared Belief.

California Chrome, the Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner, was third throughout while racing in the clear. He was not involved in any bumping.

Shared Belief, previously unbeaten, wound up fourth.

“I think it cost me the race,” Mike Smith, the rider of Shared Belief, said of the start. “I was never able to get comfortable after getting hit at the break.”

Shared Belief was followed by Belmont Stakes winner Tonalist, Candy Boy, Cigar Street, Zivo, Imperative, Footbridge, V. E. Day, Prayer for Relief, Majestic Harbor, and Moreno.

“We lost our race at the break when shot out of there and ran into everyone,” said Javier Castellano, who rode Moreno. “That pretty much took us out of the game.”

Martin Garcia rode Bayern, who is trained by Bob Baffert and owned by Kaleem Shah. All were recording their first wins in the Classic. Bayern earned $2.75 million from a gross purse of $5 million.

Baffert and Garcia performed verbal limbo when trying to justify the outcome.

“You can’t control the start,” Baffert opined. Baffert added that he thought Toast of New York “did more crushing than we did,” and said he thought the stewards were looking at the Toast of New York incident more than the start.

Garcia said Bayern “broke really sharp,” and said “there was nothing he could do.” He did appear to grab Bayern as quickly as he could, but the damage to the others was done by then.

“I was pretty sure that I didn’t do anything,” Garcia said. “In racing, these things happen.”

The win was the sixth in 10 starts this year for Bayern, who did not race at 2. This year, he also won the Haskell Invitational at Monmouth, the Pennsylvania Derby, and the Woody Stephens Stakes at Belmont Park. He was well beaten in the Travers Stakes at Saratoga in his only previous try at 1 1/4 miles.

In this race, the Haskell, and the Pennsylvania Derby, Bayern led from start to finish.

Bayern’s best weapon is his speed. His biggest wins have come in front-running fashion. “You’ve got to flaunt your speed,” Baffert said. “His brilliance is his weapon.”

He did display gameness to hold off Toast of New York and California Chrome.

“He wouldn’t let them by,” Garcia said.

And neither would the stewards.

Shared Belief finishes fourth in BC Classic after finding trouble throughout

ARCADIA, Calif. – To hear Mike Smith tell it, Shared Belief was finished at the start.

Shared Belief, last year’s 2-year-old champion, couldn’t overcome a severe bump at the break, some steadying through the stretch the first time, and a wide trip down the backside as he suffered his first career defeat when finishing fourth in Saturday’s $5 million Breeders’ Cup Classic at Santa Anita.

Shared Belief finished four lengths behind the front-running Bayern, who came in at the break from post 7 and bumped Shared Belief into Moreno. The incident had Shared Belief sixth down the lane the first time.

The bumping incident was the subject of a steward’s inquiry immediately following the race, but the stewards deemed that Shared Belief was bothered more by horses that he beat than by Bayern.

“I swear to you – I honestly believe it cost me the whole race. I really believe that,” said Smith, who was not angry when he spoke to the press immediately after the race was made official.

Asked if he felt the incident cost his horse the race, an upset Jerry Hollendorfer, the trainer of Shared Belief said, “What do you think?”

Shared Belief got bumped by Bayern into Moreno, and after that, he was forced to steady behind Toast of New York, who had cut in front of him about an eighth of a mile into the race.

One could see Smith bounce in the saddle as he tried to settle Shared Belief into his stride. Shared Belief was four wide entering the first turn and in sixth position. Down the backside, he raced outside of Moreno, but, according to Smith, but got bumped by that horse and was never comfortable. He launched a mild bid around the turn but never got into contention with the top three, well behind Bayern, Toast of New York, and California Chrome.

“I got hit really hard the first jump, and after that, I kept getting hit,” Smith said. “After the first jump Bayern hit me, it slowed me up enough so the rest of them could finish me off. My colt got up, and he ran really well. Considering all he went through, it was a pretty incredible race. I would have liked to have seen what would have happened if I would have had a fair break.”

It was the second straight race Shared Belief was bothered by horses during the running of a race. He was carried very wide in the Awesome Again Stakes but overcame that to win.

Saturday’s loss likely cost Shared Belief a chance at Horse of the Year and the 3-year-old championship, titles that may now go to Bayern or perhaps California Chrome, the Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner.

Smith said he does not believe the bumping from Bayern, under jockey Martin Garcia, was done intentionally.

“Nothing you can do. The first jump is the first jump. We all leave there with a loop our rein the first jump,” Smith said. “I can’t say at all it was intentional.”

Hollendorfer said he didn’t believe the bumping was done intentionally either but had little else to say as he walked back to the barn after the race.

“He was wide the whole way. He got bumped around two or three different times,” Hollendorfer said. “I’m not making an excuse. That’s what happened.”

California Chrome redeems himself with near-miss

ARCADIA, Calif. -- The roller-coaster ride that was California Chrome’s star-studded 2014 campaign came to a bittersweet end in the gloaming at Santa Anita late Saturday afternoon, where the Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner came within a half-length of winning the Breeders’ Cup Classic and clinching not only the 3-year-old championship but perhaps Horse of the Year honors as well.

In the end, California Chrome had no real excuse after avoiding the early trouble that eliminated several key contenders in the Classic, including his chief rival for 3-year-old honors entering the race, the previously undefeated Shared Belief. Now it is Bayern, who survived a stewards’ inquiry to add the Classic to earlier victories in the Haskell and Pennsylvania Derby, and becomes the front-runner for the title.

California Chrome, who came from humble beginnings, captured the country’s imagination following his victories in the Derby and Preakness. But he became vilified in the eyes of many when his quest for the Triple Crown ended with a fourth-place finish in the Belmont due to inflammatory comments made by co-owner Steve Coburn moments after the race.

California Chrome returned to California and received a well-deserved break following the controversy in New York. Training in the relative obscurity of his home base at Los Alamitos, he would start just once prior to the Classic, finishing sixth as the odds-on favorite in the Pennsylvania Derby on Sept. 20.

“I wish we could have gotten in one more race before this one,” said jockey Victor Espinoza, who was lauded for his rides aboard California Chrome in the first two legs of the Triple Crown and then criticized for his handling of the colt in both the Belmont and Pennsylvania Derby. “I had a good trip today. I thought they’d go a little quicker the first half-mile but the other speed got completely eliminated out of the gate. I knew as tough when he’s in front, but I already had my position so I had to wait and be patient. He tried really hard, although in the end he just got a little tired. But it was a tremendous year. It was such a great run winning the Derby and Preakness and after his race today, I still think he deserves to be the 3-year-old champion.”

Alan Sherman serves as an assistant for his father, trainer Art Sherman, and was an integral part of California Chrome’s Triple Crown run, overseeing the horse’s training on the East Coast throughout the series. The younger Sherman said after the Classic that he couldn’t have been prouder of his horse, even in defeat.

“Of course you’d like to win,” said Sherman. “I don’t know if he idled or got a little tired at the end of the race. Maybe it was just that the other two horses kept on running. Whatever the case, Chrome ran his heart out and that’s all you can ask. Although I do believe Bayern should have been disqualified. What happened after the start really changed the whole dynamic of the race.”

Sherman said he believes the 3-year-old championship and perhaps Horse of the Year honors, could well come down to a close vote among his horse, Bayern, and Shared Belief.

“You can probably give the award to any of the three,” said Sherman. “As for us, it was an awesome experience, so much fun. And whether he wins the championship or not, it was still an amazing year.” 

Karakontie surges to win Breeders' Cup Mile

ARCADIA, Calif. – Trainer Jonathan Pease does not often send runners to the Breeders’ Cup, but when he does, it is with strong intent.

Pease’s first Breeders’ Cup starter since 2005, Karakontie, gave the French-based, English-born trainer his second Mile victory. Spinning World won the 1997 Mile after finishing second the year before.

Karakontie’s rider, Stephane Pasquier, not only won with his first Breeders’ Cup mount, he gave Karakontie a flawless ride after breaking from post 14, a draw that had never produced a one-mile turf winner at Santa Anita. And Karakontie, a Japanese-bred by the American sire Bernstein, capped a tremendous day for the Niarchos family, which, racing as Flaxman Holdings Ltd., not only bred and owns Karakontie but bred and owns BC Turf winner Side Glance.

Karakontie was let go at a huge price, 30-1, despite clearly having the qualifications to contend in the Mile. Perhaps it was the wide draw that turned bettors off, but Pasquier wound up working out a perfect trip for Karakontie, who closed into a torrid pace without ever finding trouble or losing more than nominal ground.

“I had a dream run listening to the letter of Jonathan’s instructions,” Pasquier said through an interpreter.

Anodin, beaten one length by Karakontie, was not so lucky, encountering a spot of trouble just past the half-mile pole. Waiting there might have cost Anodin a victory, as he closed fastest of all and was gaining on the winner in the final half-furlong. Trade Storm finished third, giving Europeans a sweep of the trifecta, with Summer Front fourth.

Toronado, the 2-1 favorite, got hot before going out to the track, broke like a shot. and tracked the sizzling pace of Obviously. He cornered poorly coming into the stretch and, according to jockey Richard Hughes, “hit a wall,” fading to eighth.

Toronado actually ran head-and-head with the wickedly fast Obviously through the first part of a suicidal 21.95-second opening quarter-mile before backing off to track the pace from second. The half went in 45.16, and by then, Karakontie’s wide draw was a distant memory. Pasquier had maneuvered him two paths from the fence, tracking from ninth, and there he sat until the turn, when Karakontie began creeping up.

Coming between horses, Karakontie emerged just as the pace began taking a toll on Obviously, and he seized the lead, finishing with sufficient energy to hold clear Anodin.

Anodin, trained by Freddie Head, rode Miesque (Karakontie’s third dam) to victory in two Miles and trained Goldikova to three victories. In Anodin, he has a horse who has been compromised by bad luck on several occasions and had found misfortune again in what Head said was probably his final start.

Trade Storm, the Woodbine Mile winner, held his excellent form, rallying from 12th to finish third, a head in front of Obviously. Then came Mustajeeb, Tom’s Tribute, Toronado, Seek Again, Kaigun, Grand Arch, Veda, Tourist, and Sayaad.

The winning time for the Mile was 1:32.88, and Karakontie, out of the mare Sum Is Up, paid a whopping $62 to win. That is a huge price for a horse rightly described by his trainer as one of Europe’s best 2-year-olds of 2013, when Karakontie won three of four starts, including the Group 1 Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere.

This year, Karakontie won the Group 1 Poule d’Essai des Poulains, the French 2000 Guineas, and the country’s most important one-mile race for 3-year-olds before failing to stay nine furlongs in the Prix du Jockey Club and enduring a nightmarish trip when 11th in the Prix de la Foret on the Oct. 5 Arc undercard.

Pease, who now is 2 for 8 with his Breeders’ Cup starters, had several months ago pegged American-style racing at Santa Anita, tight turns, and fast turf as potentially suitable to Karakontie.

He was right again.

Work All Week gets payday in BC Sprint

ARCADIA, Calif. – Work All Week remained perfect on dirt and laid claim to the title of fastest horse in the world after holding off defending champion Secret Circle to register a half-length victory in the $1.5 million Breeders’ Cup Sprint on Saturday at Santa Anita.

Work All Week, a son of City Zip, is owned by his breeder, Richard Papiese’s Midwest Thoroughbreds. Midwest is the nation’s leading owner in races won in 2014. Work All Week also was the first Breeders’ Cup starter for both his trainer, Roger Brueggemann, and jockey Florent Geroux.

Brueggemann, who worked as a mechanic for 30 years before taking out his trainer’s license in the late 1980s, is based at Hawthorne and had never won a Grade 1 race coming into the Breeders’ Cup.

The Sprint was Work All Week’s 12th victory in 15 career starts and his 10th in as many outings on dirt. He received a free berth into the Breeders’ Cup by virtue of his victory in the Win and You’re In, Grade 3 Phoenix at Keeneland four weeks earlier.

Work All Week broke alertly under Geroux and stalked the early pace of Fast Anna, who posted splits of 21.19 seconds for the opening quarter and 43.34 for a half-mile over a track upgraded from “good” to “fast” earlier in the day.

Work All Week forged to the lead nearing the eighth pole, edged clear, then withstood a late try from Secret Circle. The defending Sprint champion raced well placed but could not quite reach the winner over a surface that favored speed throughout the afternoon. Private Zone finished another 1 1/4 lengths back in third. 

Despite his perfect record on dirt, Work All Week returned a generous $40.20 after completing the distance in 1:08.28.

“He just does everything we ask, so it’s hard not to be confident in him,” said the modest and soft-spoken Brueggemann. “They kept saying we didn’t beat anybody. I wonder what they’ll say now.”

Geroux, whose father, former rider Dominique Geroux, was in attendance Saturday, said he had the utmost confidence in Work All Week despite the gelding’s humble beginnings. 

“It feels great, it’s like a dream come true,” said Florent Geroux. “To compete in this kind of race and win at the first try is unbelievable. I was very confident in my horse, and he was very sharp today. At the quarter pole, he caught a nice breather, and I knew he would be hard to catch. 

Papiese said Work All Week would be given time off at his farm in Ocala, Fla. He is scheduled to ship out Tuesday.

Trainer Bob Baffert said he was proud of Secret Circle in defeat.

“I knew that post was going to be tough,” said Baffert. “He tried hard. I thought he was going to get there, but he came up short. He ran too good to lose.”

Main Sequence caps perfect year with BC Turf win

ARCADIA, Calif. – When Main Sequence turned for home in Saturday’s $2,760,000 Breeders’ Cup Turf at Santa Anita, jockey John Velazquez had a clear path, but a formidable group of European-based runners to catch.

Velazquez was thinking 300 yards down the track.

“I was going so good,” he said. “My concern was getting the horse to the lead too early.”

Velazquez had perfect timing. Main Sequence rallied wide to take the lead in the final sixteenth and held off a stubborn rival in Flintshire to win the Grade 1 BC Turf by a half-length.

Main Sequence ($14.40) ran 1 1/2 miles in 2:24.91, getting his fourth consecutive Grade 1 win since arriving at trainer Graham Motion’s stable from England last winter. Motion, who won the 2004 BC Turf at Lone Star Park with Better Talk Now, was thinking similar thoughts as Velazquez when the final quarter-mile of the race unfolded.

“I thought at the top of the stretch he would win,” Motion said. “It all worked out so well. The only question was whether he got to the front too early.”

Main Sequence was the 6-1 third choice in a field of 12 led by two European-based runners – the 8-5 favorite, Telescope, and Flintshire, a 3-1 chance who finished second in the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe in Paris on Oct. 5.

They were two of the four horses in front of Main Sequence with a furlong to go. Velazquez had Main Sequence on the outside of the field throughout the race, running in eighth or ninth through the first half-mile. Main Sequence made steady progress on the turn and was seventh with a quarter-mile remaining, trailing the leader, Hardest Core, by about 3 1/2 lengths.

In early stretch, Main Sequence began closing on the leaders. Flintshire led narrowly over Telescope with a furlong remaining, but neither could hold off Main Sequence. Flintshire fought to the wire after being passed.

“When the winner ran by us, he tried to kick on again, but it was much too late,” said jockey Maxime Guyon, who rode Flintshire.

Twilight Eclipse, second and third behind Main Sequence in three Grade 1 races in New York and New Jersey this year, closed from eighth in the final quarter-mile to finish third, beaten 1 3/4 lengths.

“I need to find out where Graham is going to take his horse next,” joked Terry Finley, the president of the West Point Thoroughbreds syndicate that owns Twilight Eclipse. “I thought we had a shot.”

Telescope finished fourth, followed by Chicquita, Hangover Kid, Imagining, Hardest Core, Big John B, Finnegans Wake, Brown Panther, and Starspangled Heat.

With the victory, Main Sequence made a compelling case to claim the Eclipse Award as the nation’s outstanding turf horse of 2014.

Main Sequence was bred in Kentucky by the Niarchos family. Maria Niarchos and her niece, Electra, attended the race. Main Sequence was second in the 2012 English Derby behind Camelot but had an unsuccessful 4-year-old in season in 2013, losing six races in England. At the time, trainer David Lanigan suggested to the Niarchos family that Main Sequence be sent to Motion’s stable in Maryland for a change of scenery.

Main Sequence, who was gelded at the end of his 4-year-old season, has won 8 of 18 starts and $3,298,386. He is unbeaten in the United States, having won the United Nations Stakes at Monmouth Park in July, the Sword Dancer at Saratoga in August, and the Joe Hirsch Turf Classic at Belmont Park on Sept. 27.

Rajiv Maragh rode Main Sequence in those races but was injured in the Jockey Club Gold Cup, the race immediately after the Hirsch Turf Classic. Maragh remains sidelined. Velazquez picked up the mount in late October. Though out of action, Maragh played a scouting role in Saturday’s win. Maragh, Velazquez, and Motion had a strategy session earlier in the week.

“The three of us got together, and we just really talked and hashed out all his little idiosyncrasies,” Motion said. “I think it really helped.”

For Velazquez, the win came a year after he lost his spleen in a spill on the Saturday of Breeders’ Cup week at Santa Anita, a memory that remains vivid for Motion.

“A year ago, I was sitting in hospital with Johnny V., and he was in critical condition,” Motion said, his voice cracking. “It’s quite a turn of events.”

Bobby's Kitten up in time in BC Turf Sprint

ARCADIA, Calif. – For a year, Bobby’s Kitten has been a source of lingering frustration for trainer Chad Brown, the memories of a third-place finish in the 2013 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf at Santa Anita proving difficult to forget.

The aggravation is over. Bobby Kitten’s more than redeemed himself with an electrifying win in Saturday’s $920,000 Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint at Santa Anita.

“It took a full year to get over it,” Brown said.

Starting in the shortest race of his career, Bobby’s Kitten won his most prestigious race, closing from last in a field of 14 under jockey Joel Rosario to take the lead in the final strides of the BC Turf Sprint.

Bobby’s Kitten won by a half-length over No Nay Never, who led in deep stretch. Undrafted closed from 11th to finish third, a nose behind No Nay Never. No Nay Never and Undrafted are trained by Wesley Ward.


Owned by breeders Ken and Sarah Ramsey, Bobby’s Kitten ($16.40) ran about 6 1/2 furlongs on the hillside turf course in 1:12.73.

Brown said he began thinking of a start in the BC Turf Sprint in recent weeks after Bobby’s Kitten finished third in the Grade 1 Woodbine Mile on Sept. 14. Rosario was aboard for that race, in which Bobby’s Kitten lost by 2 1/4 lengths to Trade Storm after relinquishing the lead in the final sixteenth.

Bobby’s Kitten was pre-entered for the BC Mile and Turf Sprint, but Brown and Ken Ramsey were more intrigued by the Turf Sprint.

“We decided, let’s cut back in distance, and maybe he won’t fight the rider,” Brown said.

Rosario had Bobby’s Kitten at the back of the field early, well behind Reneesgotzip, who led by 3 1/2 lengths after an opening quarter-mile in 21.69 seconds. Rosario said he was trying to select the right path for Bobby’s Kitten.

“He broke fine,” Rosario said. “I was having a little trouble. A couple of horses were in his way. I was trying to figure out where I wanted to be.”

Bobby’s Kitten was last when the field approached the crossing from the hillside turf course to the main turf course. Staying wide, Bobby’s Kitten was 12th with a furlong remaining.

“I let everyone go and came around,” Rosario said. “He showed a good turn of foot, and he ran a great race.”

Even though Bobby’s Kitten was well off the pace, he caught the eye in the last sixteenth, reaching the front just in time with a wide move. 

Jockey Frankie Dettori thought he would win aboard No Nay Never, the 7-2 favorite who was always near the front.

“If he had been closer to me, I might have found a bit,” Dettori said. “He was so wide. I used as a marker. I hit the front in the last sixteenth, and I got mugged on the line.”

Undrafted finished a neck in front of Ageless, who was followed by Sweet Swap, Tightend Touchdown, Ambitious Brew, Caspar Netscher, Reneesgotzip, Something Extra, Home Run Kitten, Dimension, Marchman, and Silentio.

It was not until the field reached the crossing that Brown understood Rosario’s strategy.

“I was worried until halfway through the race, trying to figure out what he would do,” he said.
Bobby’s Kitten, who is by the Ramseys’ sire Kitten’s Joy, has won 5 of 11 starts and earned $1,294,916. The BC Turf Sprint was the colt’s third stakes win, preceded by the Grade 3 Pilgrim Stakes at Belmont Park in October 2013 and the Penn Mile for 3-year-olds on turf at Penn National in May.

In the 2013 BC Juvenile Turf, Bobby’s Kitten set a fast pace and faded as the 6-5 favorite. Brown considered Bobby’s Kitten to be one of his best hopes for the 2013 Breeders’ Cup races. The colt turned out to be a star a year later.

Texas Red dominates BC Juvenile

ARCADIA, Calif. – With a devastating turn of foot, Texas Red turned Saturday’s $2 million Breeders’ Cup Juvenile into a family affair and created more havoc in the 2-year-old division.

Last for more than a half-mile, Texas Red launched a bid 3 1/2 furlongs out, split horses with a five-wide move, and powered home a convincing 6 1/2-length winner of the Juvenile at Santa Anita. Kent Desormeaux, the Hall of Fame jockey, rode the horse for his older brother, Keith, the trainer and part-owner of the colt.

“Our mom and dad, we owe a lot of credit to, besides Keith and his genius of acquiring these animals. We’ve done it all our lives – this is what we know,” Kent Desormeaux, 44, said. “I got to ride them and stayed small, and Keith has the eye and education. But it’s great being on a brotherly loving team.”

“It’s obviously something special,” said Keith Desormeaux, 46, who captured his first Grade 1 victory. “It makes the success all the more enjoyable. It does help he’s a Hall of Fame rider.”

Kent Desormeaux nearly didn’t get to ride Texas Red. On Sept. 28, the day after Texas Red finished third in the Grade 1 FrontRunner, Desormeaux suffered broken ribs and a partially collapsed lung after getting kicked in the paddock.

“I don’t even know I have ribs,” Desormeaux said.

Early on the card, it didn’t look as though Texas Red’s late-running style would be effective on the main track. But as the track dried out, perhaps it changed.

Texas Red was about 10 lengths back after a half-mile. Blue Dancer had set the pace, pressed by Souper Colossal, and they went the half in 45.66 seconds.

Desormeaux said his biggest decision came around the quarter pole when horses were slowing down around him. He elected to stay inside for a little while before swinging out five wide at the quarter pole.

“They started coming back to him before I got to let him run. I was already wowed at the quarter pole,” Desormeaux said. “It was fun. He was back there, but he didn’t have to alter his stride. All I can say is there’s a new Big Red.”

Texas Red, a son of Afleet Alex, covered the 1 1/16 miles in 1:41.91. He returned $29.80 to win.

Texas Red was purchased for just $17,000 at the Keeneland yearling sale. Keith Desormeaux bought him for an ownership group that includes Erich Brehm, Wayne Detmer, Lee Michaels, and Gene Voss. Desormeaux also owns a piece of the horse.

“I still don’t realize how we got him for such a price because he was a physical masterpiece even then – very correct, very confident, very intelligent looking, all the things we look for as horsemen in trying to acquire a good animal,” Desormeaux said.

Desormeaux deduced that the price was so cheap because his sire, Afleet Alex, was a bit cold. But, Desormeaux said, as a son of Afleet Alex, Texas Red likely “is going to get better.”

Texas Red was just one of two California-based horses to run in the Juvenile. American Pharoah, the FrontRunner winner, scratched earlier in the week due to injury. Calculator, second in the FrontRunner, scratched Saturday morning due to a sore foot.

Carpe Diem, the 9-5 favorite, rallied from way back to get up for second by a nose over Upstart. It was 1 3/4 lengths farther back to The Great War. He was followed by Mr. Z, One Lucky Dane, Souper Colossal, Lucky Player, Private Prospect, Blue Dancer, and Daredevil.

Daredevil stopped abruptly as if something had happened. Javier Castellano, his rider, suspects he might have bled.

“He gave the sign that he bled or something because the way he stopped,” Castellano said. “Any horse that stopped the way he did, something is wrong.”

Judy the Beauty scores in BC Filly and Mare Sprint

ARCADIA, Calif. – Judy the Beauty held off longshot Better Lucky to continue a huge weekend for trainer Wesley Ward when posting a narrow victory Saturday in the $1 million Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Sprint at Santa Anita.

With Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith aboard, Judy the Beauty needed every bit of the perfect trip she got when finishing a head before Better Lucky in the seven-furlong race.

Ward, who watched from south Florida after opting to be with his family, already had enjoyed a successful BC weekend after notching a win and two seconds from just three starters Friday. After the BC Turf Sprint, in which No Nay Never was second and Undrafted was third, he wound up with a remarkable record of 2-3-1 from six starters in the 2014 BC.

“Unreal,” he said by text message shortly after the race.

Sent away a lukewarm favorite, Judy the Beauty returned $8.20 after finishing in 1:21.92 over a fast track.

Stonetastic, the 3-1 second choice, set the pace from the rail while followed closely by Leigh Court and Southern Honey. Judy the Beauty, away in good order, was always in the clear when fifth down the backstretch and began to inch closer with an outside run into the far turn.

After straightening away, Judy the Beauty wrested the lead from a tiring Stonetastic nearing the eighth pole. She then was put to an all-out drive by Smith to prevail over Better Lucky, a 23-1 shot who trailed early under Javier Castellano before saving ground around the turn and angling out smartly to finish powerfully.

Thank You Marylou, a 39-1 shot, was third, another 3 1/2 lengths back, while Stonetastic held fourth, another length behind.

A 5-year-old Ontario-bred mare by Ghostzapper, Judy the Beauty is owned by Ward, who trained her into the race off a series of workouts at Keeneland, mostly on turf. Ward said before the Filly and Mare Sprint that he believed “I’ve got her as good as I can get her,” and that he felt comfortable skipping an interim prep after Judy the Beauty had made her last start Aug. 18.

Ward, 46, won the 1984 Eclipse Award for top apprentice jockey before turning to training several years later. He had been shut out with his first 16 BC starters before Friday, when Hootenanny and Luck of the Kitten ran one-two in the BC Juvenile Turf and Sunset Glow was second in the BC Juvenile Fillies Turf.

Judy the Beauty has been a model of consistency for Ward, who said before the race that he is inclined to keep her in training and point to the 2015 BC Filly and Mare Sprint at Keeneland. The mare now has nine wins and seven seconds from 18 starts, with the $550,000 winner’s share giving her a career bankroll of $1,662,112.

Last year in the Filly and Mare Sprint, she finished second at 9-1 by a half-length to two-time division champion Groupie Doll.

Ward told BC publicity from Florida: “She just digs down deep in her soul. That was amazing. Very few horses run with as much heart as she does. I’m just elated with this whole weekend.”

For Smith, the victory extended his own record for the most riding wins in the Breeders’ Cup to 21.

“Absolutely dynamite,” said Smith. “I couldn’t have asked for a better trip. Almost every step of it, except for almost getting caught.”

Castellano said of Better Lucky: “She was the only one closing. I have to give credit to the winner, she just wouldn’t stop.”

After the top four, the order was Leigh Court, Southern Honey, Artemis Agrotera, Sweet Reason, Little Alexis, and Living the Life.

The $2 exacta (7-8) paid $136, the $1 trifecta (7-8-4) returned $1,209.40, and the 10-cent superfecta (7-8-4-3) was worth $844.10.

This was the eighth running of the Filly and Mare Sprint, first run in 2007 at Monmouth Park.

Dayatthespa all the way in BC Filly and Mare Turf

ARCADIA, Calif. – At any distance and on almost every surface, speed is dangerous.

Dayatthespa proved it again Saturday at Santa Anita in a race that might have been the final start of her career. For sure, the 1 1/4-mile Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Turf was the longest of her career. And Dayatthespa stole it.

She stole it using clever prerace strategy designed by trainer Chad Brown and executed perfectly by jockey Javier Castellano. Everyone knew Dayatthespa would set the pace. But she was untested beyond 1 1/8 miles, and Brown instructed Castellano to “not move” until the top of the stretch.

No problem. Dayatthespa set the pace and slowed it down while pressed from the outside by Parranda. Castellano waited until the head of the lane to ask Dayatthespa for run, and she responded.

Dayatthespa cut loose, opened up, and was never in danger. She won by 1 1/4 lengths in 2:00.12 over a turf course labeled “good.” Just The Judge finished third, a head in front of Dank, the 2013 Filly and Mare Turf winner whose 2014 form was well below par.

“I thought she could get the distance if we could get away with a slow pace,” Castellano said. “I was hoping we could go 24, 48, 1:13, and that’s exactly what we did. When we got three-quarters in 1:13, I thought to myself, ‘We’re going to steal this thing,’ and we did.”

The posted fractions were 23.89 seconds, 48.37, and 1:13.12.

For most of her career, Dayatthespa had a reputation as a miler. The longest races she tried were at 1 1/8 miles. She won both. Still, the daughter of City Zip, a multiple Grade 1 winner, was unknown at the classic distance.

Brown was aware of the challenge and instructed Castellano to not open up on the field. He told Castellano to make the lead, slow it down, sit still, and when the field came to her on the far turn, stay still and wait some more.

Done. Dayatthespa cut loose into the lane and was gone. It was her 11th win from 18 starts for owners Ronald Frankel, Jerry Frankel, Steve Laymon, and Pete Bradley. Dayatthespa, the second New York-bred to win a Breeders’ Cup race, is entered in the Fasig-Tipton November sale on Monday.

Stephanie’s Kitten also is entered in the Fasig-Tipton sale, and an argument could be made that she ran as well as the winner. Stephanie’s Kitten lost ground while rallying wide from off the pace and was second-best.

Just The Judge, wheeling back on short rest after winning the Grade 1 E.P. Taylor on Oct. 19 at Woodbine, finished third. Dank finished fourth.

The fifth- through 11th-place finishers were Secret Gesture, Parranda, Abaco, Fiesloana, Emollient, Rusty Slipper, and Irish Mission.

The win was Brown’s second of Breeders’ Cup weekend. He won the Juvenile Fillies Turf on Friday with Lady Eli. It was the fourth Breeders’ Cup win for Brown and Castellano.
