Kakashan is all set to give champion
trainer John Gosden the perfect start on
a very special day by winning division
one of the Maiden Fillies Stakes over
seven furlongs of good to soft Newmarket
this afternoon; first four races are all for
two-year-olds and, as far as I m con-
cerned, it doesn t get any better than
watching juveniles on the famous Rowley
Later on Big John' will have much bigger
fish to fry, he's in Keeneland supervising
the final public appearance of Golden Horn
for the Breeders' Cup Classic over ten fur-
longs, he's long odds-on, more about the
Twice-raced Kakashan improved on
debut when third to heavily-backed
favourite, Dutch Destiny, on a soft' Sal-
isbury surface nineteen days ago when
Nicky Mackay rode this Kodiac filly pos-
itively; they lost the lead two out but fin-
ished beaten only two lengths.
On the time-handicap Kakashan achieved
a mark that wins this-type race seven times
out of ten and experienced jockey Jimmy
Fortune is a plus. We'll play each-way
Kakashan and hopefully initiate a double
with Daqeeq, one of nine decs' for the
Maiden Stakes over a mile of Wolverhamp-
ton Tapeta tonight; diners will enjoy a won-
derful menu' because it will be Breeders'
Cup' evening at Dunstall Park.
Daqeeq is the best bet, by far, anywhere!
Also Cautious Optimism rates a solid
each-way proposition on a handy mark in
the nursery handicap over six furlongs and
will trade at inflated odds!
Golden Horn will start at prohibitive
odds, from a disadvantageous draw; Found
is an obvious alternative and, again, we'll
target three available places. Aidan O'Brien's
charge is a major contender judged on her
last two starts.
maria won the $2 million
Breeders Cup Distaff by a neck,
giving trainer Todd Pletcher
and jockey Javier Castellano
their second victories yesterday
on the opening day of the world
championships at Keeneland.
The last of the day's four Cup
races was the most suspenseful,
with the stewards needing sev-
eral minutes to sort through a
foul claim and objection before
declaring the results official.
Stopchargingmaria ran 1 1/8
miles in 1:48.98 and paid $16.20,
$8.40 and $6 at 7-1 odds.
Stellar Wind returned $9.20
and $6.60, while Pletcher-
trained Curalina was another 3
1/2 lengths back in third and
paid $7 to show. Pletcher's third
horse in the field, Got Lucky,
The stewards examined video
of the stretch run, when
bumped Stellar Wind and car-
ried her wide toward the grand-
stand. Victor Espinoza, aboard
Stellar Wind, filed the objection
against Castellano, saying he
was forced to check his horse.
With the crowd of 44,947
clutching their tickets, the stew-
ards made no change in the
order of finish, citing insufficient
Wedding Toast, the 5-2
favorite, finished 11th in the 14-
Defending champion Unta-
pable didn't run after she devel-
oped a fever earlier in the week.
Earlier, Pletcher and Castel-
lano teamed with odds-on
favourite Liam's Map to win the
$1 million Dirt Mile, the lone
favorite to win Friday.
Liam's Map came from off
the pace to win by 2 1/2 lengths.
Liam's Map ran the distance in
a track-record time of 1:34.54.
The 4-year-old gray colt paid
$3, $2.40 and $2.10 as the 1-2
favourite. Castellano rode the
fifth winner of his career in the
world championships. Liam's
Map earned his second straight
Grade 1 victory in his eighth
Liam's Map is usually a front-
runner, but he was stuck back
in the pack before rallying to
wear down pacesetter Lea. Lea
returned $4.20 and $3 while Red
Vine was another 3 1/4 lengths
back in third and paid $3.40 to
show. Wicked Strong finished
fourth in the 11-horse field.
Long shots reached the win-
ner's circle in the Juvenile Turf
and Juvenile Fillies Turf, both
$1 million races. At 7-1 odds,
Hit It a Bomb rallied late to win
the Juvenile Turf by a neck.
Catch a Glimpse, a 6-1 shot,
prevailed by three-quarters of a
length in the Juvenile Fillies Turf,
ending trainer Mark Casse's 0-
for-25 skid in the Breeders' Cup.
LEXINGTON---Tale of S avall is out of the Breeders
Cup Juvenile, while Bawina has been scratched
from the Filly & Mare Turf.
Trainer Barclay Tagg says Tale of S'avall has been
having foot problems and veterinarians recommended
he not run in today's $2 million race. The 2-year-
old colt was a 30-1 shot.
That allows 30-1 shot Siding Spring into the Juve-
nile, where he will break from post 14 on the far out-
Ireland-bred Bawina was scratched from the Filly
& Mare Turf by trainer Carlos Laffon-Parias. He says
the 4-year-old filly experienced muscle damage after
exercising Wednesday. She showed improvement
after a trot Thursday, but he decided not to run her.
She was listed at 15-1 odds.
Bawina's scratch allows European challenger Tal-
mada, a 30-1 shot, into Saturday's $2 million race.
Chelsea Lad could have his attentions turned
towards a run in next year s Greenham Stakes after
running out a narrow winner of the British Stallion
Studs EBF Maiden Stakes at Newmarket.
Despite being faced with a wide draw the 33-1
shot knew what was required on his debut in the
seven-furlong contest when edging out odds-on
favourite Clear Cut by a short head in the hands of
Winning trainer Martyn Meade said: "He has been
working well, but I think conditions suited him. This
is a classy race and we were running him to give him
some education, but he might be a bit better than
"I didn't think he had the best draw on his own
on the outside, so he did it the hard way. I thought
maybe greenness may have beaten him in the photo,
but he knew his job.
"He is one to look forward to next year and it
would be interesting to see what the ground is like
in the Greenham."
Victory formed the first leg of a double for winning
rider Sweeney, who was also successful aboard the
Henry Candy-trained Greenside (7-1) in the second
division of the discovernewmarket.co.uk Handicap.
Ralph Beckett will be hoping the victory of Moonrise
Landing (9-1) in the EBF Stallions Breeding Winners
Fillies' Handicap is a sign of things to come in
Keeneland on Saturday.
The Andover handler, who is in America overseeing
Secret Gesture's preparations for the Breeders Cup
Filly And Mares Turf, was on the mark at the Rowley
Mile after the four-year-old cast aside fears of a soft
surface when grinding out a half-length triumph.
Jockey Jim Crowley said: "We were a little bit wor-
ried about the soft ground. She seemed to handle it
well and dug in, as they battled from a long way out.
"I've not ridden her for a while, but she always
Mobsta gunned down his rivals when opening his
account for the season in the
newmarketracecourse.co.uk Conditions Stakes.
Showing no signs of tiredness following a run at
Doncaster on Saturday, the 11-8 favourite got the
better of Apache Storm late on in the six-furlong
affair before coming out on top by a head.
The victory came at a cost for winning rider Charles
Bishop, who picked up a two-day ban (November
13-14) for careless riding.
Mick Channon junior, assistant to his father, said:
"We got the trip wrong at Doncaster on Saturday
and he blew up inside the last half furlong. He is a
six furlong horse.
Jimmy Fortune saw his tactics to test the stamina
of his rivals pay off aboard Star Rider (8-1) in the
Racing UK Handicap.
