Sport Winner wins Breeders' Cup Juvenile on "Future Stars Friday"

Betting: Mendelssohn can be music to punters ears in 'Classic'

Mendelssoh, Roaring Lion set to challenge Accelerate

The two-year-old will be ridden by jockey Oisin Murphy who then partners The Mackem Bullet for dual-purpose Malton trainer Brian Ellison in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf over one mile at the iconic Churchill Downs - home of the Kentucky Derby.

Game Winner, who was an even-money bet at post time, was followed by 40-1 Knicks Go, who finished second, and 67-1 Signalman, who came in third.

Often featuring U.S. Horse of the Year candidates and notoriously more hard to predict, the event began on Friday from Louisville with the first of 14 races, and it concludes with the Cup Classic itself on Saturday night - a finale touting a $6-million purse.

The win ended doubts about Enable's health after she missed most of the year with a leg injury before returning to win the Arc last month. Well Done Fox took a bit of time to get used to the sights and sounds at Churchill Downs, but trained particularly well on Thursday morning and Kington believes he should easily handle the soft turf course.

"We're all good", Miller confirmed. "You'd think a drunk guy couldn't get on a horse".

The UN says about 14 million people, or half Yemen's population, could soon be on the brink of starvation in a man-made disaster. UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Friday had called for a halt to violence to pull Yemen back from the "precipice".

Joel Rosario rode Accelerate to the victory completing a big weekend for Rosario who also was victorious on top of Game Winner in Friday's Breeders' Cup Juvenile. There are 29 Group Ones but within them some really good group ones. "They just exhausted and just didn't have it today".

"There is a strong European challenge for the 2018 Breeders' Cup, and the performances of Enable and Roaring Line at Churchill Downs will help determine the victor of the Cartier Horse Of The Year Award", said Harry Herbert, racing consultant to the Cartier Awards.

The familiar New York-based jockey-trainer combination of Todd Pletcher and Javier Castellano teamed up to win the day's opening Breeders' Cup race, the newly minted $1-million Juvenile Turf Sprint with Bulletin. "I got a ideal trip", said Ortiz. "This is what I do every day, every year for my whole career". He had to show it today that he was the best. The Kentucky Oaks victor provided trainer Brad Cox with his first Cup win. But it was not just the fact that Enable did something no other horse has been able to do before. He came out of his race a year ago with a quarter crack and we fixed that.

- Newspaperofrecord rolled to another dominant victory, pulling away down the stretch for a 6 3/4-length win over East in the $1 million Juvenile Fillies Turf.
