Robby Albarado and Court Vision captured the Breeders' Cup Mile on a firm Matt Winn Turf Course at historic Churchill Downs over Turallure with Julien Leparoux aboard and upsetting three-time champion Goldikova.
Conditioner Dale Romans said, "I've been saying all week how good this horse was doing. When I saw how easy he was running down the backside, I thought if they just back up a little we've got a hell of a shot."
In the second largest payout in Breeders' Cup history, Court Vision paid $131.60, 48.60 and 21.40. Turallure returned $10.00 and $7.00, and Goldikova paid $2.40 in her last start.
