Breeders' Cup Mile: Expert Eye wins under Frankie Dettori

Roaring Lion- faces tough task in Breeders' Cup Classic

The anticipated culmination of horse racing season arrived on Saturday at Churchill Downs, and it did with Accelerate bursting through the finish line in first at the 2018 Breeders' Cup Classic. She has nine wins and a third in 10 starts and more than $8.5 million in career earnings.

Sadler was 0-44 in Breeders' Cup starts coming into the 1 1/4-mile showpiece of the $30 million festival, including a close call in the Mile earlier in the day at Louisville, Kentucky. The daughter of Cross Traffic went gate-to-wire under Rosario in the $2-million Juvenile Fillies, contested at 1 1/16 miles over the Churchill main, to win by a commanding 5 1/2 lengths in 1:43.62. "He knew what was under him - got there in time".

"He's a year older and this distance is his best distance now", he said.

Chad Brown, trainer of U.S. spearhead Robert Bruce, told the Breeders Cup website: "It's obviously exciting to have her come over and participate in the Breeders' Cup, but it's a tall order to run against her". He is now 10-for-22 lifetime and though triple crown victor Justify is the likely horse of the year, Accelerate clinched an Eclipse Award himself with the win.

Goodbye, Kepler Space Telescope
Scientists are expected to spend a decade or more in search of new discoveries in the treasure trove of data Kepler provided. Over the life of the mission, more than 100,000 of those stars were actively monitored by Kepler .


Yesterdays race was Queen Of Bermudas last outing under Suffolk-based trainer William Haggas as she is set to switch to H. Graham Motions Maryland stable in the United States. Stellar Agent was third. She did it today with sheer guts and determination.

If Newspaperofrecord were to travel to Britain next year, Royal Ascot would doubtless be the likeliest destination, and she could lend some real x-factor to the meeting were she to turn up in this sort of shape.

Newspaperofrecord, an Irish-bred filly, is by Lope de Vega, out of the Holy Roman Emperor mare Sunday Times - solid English and Irish breeding.

"That's for the sportswriters", Sadler said, laughing when asked to make his case for the award. I thought he did very well because I didn't have a straightforward trip myself. "We believe in searching out facts and society needs to get back to searching out facts and truth", he said.

Jose Mourinho swerves questions over title chances & January signings
Ahead of a trip to Bournemouth on Saturday , United are eighth in the Premier League , five points behind fourth-placed Arsenal. Mourinho has refused to rule out a challenge for the title but says the first priority must be to climb into the top four.


Those four standouts lead a contingent of 43 foreign-trained Breeders' Cup entries (44 if you count Quarteto de Cordas (BRZ), who will make his United States debut in the Turf for Ian Wilkes after racing in his native Brazil) that has the worldwide barn bursting at the seams. Chelsea Cloisters mounted a determined challenge early in the stretch run, then could not sustain the effort and settled for second. Ridden by Florent Geroux, the three-year-old filly relaxed in second early as Canadian runner Wonder Gadot went to the lead.

Gunnevera, Thunder Snow and early pace setter Mendelssohn made things interesting before 70,423, an upside to the absence of horse racing's 13th Triple Crown victor from the Classic.

"He was very professional", Castellano said.

"He broke really well", Rosario said of Accelerate. "We were in good shape the whole way".

Trump, Xi upbeat on ending trade war
In response, Beijing said it would impose taxes on 5,207 United States imports worth about $60 billion. "We are changing them". At a campaign rally in Columbia, Missouri, he later said "they want to make a deal".


Bulletin won at first asking at Gulfstream Park Sept. 29 in the Hollywood Beach Stakes, leading all the way to a 7-lengths victory over firm turf.
