Golden Horn has been drawn in stall one for
the Breeders Cup Turf at Keeneland on Satur-
John Gosden s Arc hero will break from the
rail under Frankie Dettori in the 12-runner Grade
One over a mile and a half.
Found is also due to run for Aidan O Brien and
Ryan Moore, who has been berthed in gate nine.
Sky Bet make Golden Horn their 4/7 market
leader following the Monday night draw, with
Found next in the betting at 7/2. Check out all
Sky Bet s Breeders Cup odds here.
Time Test, trained by Roger Charlton and
ridden by Moore, does not appear to have been
done any favours at the draw ceremony as he
has been handed stall 12 of 12 in the Breeders
Compatriot Mondialiste has been drawn in
stall four for David O Meara and Danny Tudhope.
The French have a strong hand in the race,
with Make Believe (three), Esoterique (nine),
Impassable (five) and last year s winner Karakontie
in gate 11.
David Wachman s hot favourite Legatissimo
has been drawn three for the Breeders Cup Filly
& Mare Turf, with the Ralph Beckett-trained
Secret Gesture in 12.
Dettori rides Miss France, who goes from stall
The main news from a European angle in the
Sentient Jet Breeders Cup Juvenile is the fact
O Brien s Waterloo Bridge goes from stall 14.
There are no European horses in the Breeders
Cup Turf Sprint, but Moore rides Wesley Ward s
The Great War (10), while Dettori partners sta-
blemate Undrafted (three).
Ward also turns to Dettori in the Breeders Cup
Filly & Mare Sprint, with last year s winner Judy
The Beauty having been berthed in stall 11.
Ballydoyle youngster Hit It A Bomb breaks
from stall 14 in the Breeders Cup Juvenile Turf
on Friday, with stablemate Shogun in stall four.
Richard Fahey s Birchwood (six) and the John
Gosden-trained Cymric (13) are the other Euros
in the hat.
The O Brien-trained War Envoy has been drawn
in stall seven for the Las Vegas Breeders Cup
Dirt Mile later on the card.
Kyllukey represents a time-handicap
special in the ten-runner Maiden Stakes
over six furlonbgs of Lingfield polytrack
this afternoon, drawn nine?
It s a downer for sure, especially as
we re prepared to take on Sir Michael
Stoute-trained favourite, Arab Poet, a
progressive, thrice-raced, Poet s Voice colt
which has an 83 BHA rating, 8lbs higher
This is the time to have a decent bet
when certain of a two-year-old, based
on personal, reliable, computation; Kyl-
lukey is definitely superior judged on his
Ripon effort last month over a similar
Subsequently this Kyllachey colt
appeared to flounder on Windsor soft
16 days ago when third to Fighting
Temeraire; no disgrace, the winner is
regarded very useful by Dean Tropics
Our jockey, Jim Crowley, is experienced
around all-weather tracks; he ll need to
be at the top of his game however because
Ryan Moore rides Arab Poet and there is
confidence behind Alshaqee, trained by
This is undoubtedly the best action of
the day in my world which will be a good
space if Kyllukey proves me right. We ll
make sure, betting-wise, by playing each-
way at decent odds.
Moore, between stints in Australia and
USA, also climbs aboard 84-rated Von
Blucher for John Gosden in the Maiden
Stakes over a mile; this Zoffany colt is
definitely over-rated and we ll be confident
of a result with once-raced, Roger Var-
ian-trained Ennaad, ridden by jockey-of-
the-moment, Andrea Atzeni.
Any improvement whatsoever will see
Ennaad in the winners enclosure and it
might not be needed!
Feels good to be back specialising on
the AWR scene which continues with a
twilight fixture on Tapeta at Wolverhamp-
ton where in-form Blacklister is a tempting
dec for the nuyrsery over seven furlongs.
Mick Channon s charge stormed home
at Nottingham recently, prior to that han-
dled poly signicantly well at Chelmsford;
strong each-way chance.

Kyll 'em off Jim!
Bob Baffert sometimes dis-
plays an impregnable, armadil-
lo-like exterior, bullet proof to
probing questions about his
horses that might infringe on
his indecisive public itinerary.
But underneath an at times
brash, bawdy, pseudo-hip and
occasionally politically incorrect
countenance given to one-liners
lays a simpatico soul and heart
that beats with a sense of rev-
erence and faith.
Say what you will about him,
the man can flat-out train, bullet
workouts be damned.
Baffert s emotions uncharac-
teristically came to the fore as
the reality of American Pharoah s
definitive departure from his barn
at Santa Anita drew ever clos-
er.The first Triple Crown winner
in 37 years was set for his last
ever workout at Santa Anita
before leaving for Keeneland
today where the three-year-old
son of Pioneerof the Nile owned
by Ahmed Zayat runs Saturday
in his final race, the $5 million
Breeders Cup Classic.
American Pharoah was due to
work over half a mile yesterday
morning under jockey Martin
After the Classic, it s life as a
stallion at Coolmore Ashford
Stud in Versailles, Kentucky.
"He fulfilled a goal for me that
I wanted but thought was prob-
ably unreachable, and that was
to win the Triple Crown," Baffert
said of the brilliant bay colt who
has won eight of 10 career starts,
going off as the favourite in each
bar the second, accumulating
earnings of $5,900,300.
"When I first got into the busi-
ness, I felt if I could just win a
Breeders Cup race it would be
great, because winning a Breed-
ers Cup is probably a little easier
than a (three-year-old) Classic,"
said Baffert, who turns 63 next
"But to win a Derby and then
three more, and going through
the Triple Crown three times
before winning, I thought was
"I just asked the Lord, Give
me one more shot, because I
think I ve got it down, and this
horse came along and answered
"It was emotional for me
because unfortunately my parents
weren t around to see it and they
were always my biggest fans. My
mother always said I was going
to win one. She d say in her little
Spanish accent, You re going to
do it. That s what made it so
emotional for me."
Bob s father, Bill, died in 2012.
His mother, Ellie, died a year ear-
"The Belmont is the first time
I ve run a horse and never rooted
for it. I just watched in amaze-
ment, and that s really rare. I
always root and scream my lungs
out, but watching him, I just
knew he was going to do it. There
was something about him that s
Baffert bids farewell to Pharoah
handed stall one
American Pharoah will shortly depart for Keeneland.
Apprentice Callum Shepherd gave his sea-
soned colleagues a lesson with an enterprising
front-running ride on Noble Gift in the feature
race at Leicester.
The 7lb claimer dictated affairs from flag-fall
on the William Knight-trained five-year-old in
the Sir Gordon Richards Handicap and always
appeared to be in control.
He stole a vital three lengths out of the field
with more than five furlongs left and Noble Gift
(14-1) maintained the momentum in the straight.
Try as they might, his six rivals failed to make
an impression and William Knight s charge gal-
loped on resolutely to score by two and a quarter
lengths from Kinema.
The Queen s Fabricate, the 5-4 favourite, was
third, with Tom Tug, Ryan Moore s only ride of
the day, fourth.
"He s a good horse and relaxed out there in
front. He idles and almost stopped to a walk at
one point," Shepherd told At The Races.
"It was a good race and there were a couple
of progressive three-year-olds in there and some
solid horses as well.
"It s good to get another one on him and he s
been a really good horse to me."
Noble Gift shines
