Breeders' Cup off and running at Churchill Downs

Roaring Lion- faces tough task in Breeders' Cup Classic

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".

John Shirreffs, who won the Kentucky Derby with 50-1 shot Giacomo in 2005, trained the fabled female Zenyatta to an "un-be-liev-a-ble" Breeders' Cup Classic triumph in 2009 in addition to Horse of the Year honors in 2010, wore his diplomat's vest.

The 4-1 second choice became the first horse in Breeders Cup history to win with only one previous start, a victory at Gulfstream Parks Hollywood Beach Stakes last month.

Monomoy Girl bolstered her case as the top 3-year-old filly by winning the $2 million Distaff.

In the end, though, she responded to Dettori's urging and powered past her rival halfway down the straight, then stayed on strongly all the way to the line. She has nine wins and a third in 10 starts and more than $8.5 million in career earnings. A decision as to whether Enable remains in training will be made later. "Thank the lord that this horse came through and everything went well for us today because these races are hard to win". But when I asked her she went half a length up. It was an important move, because while he was forced to come around horses on the home turn, he was able to keep close to Magical as Ryan Moore sent her to the lead at the top of the straight. "Joel said that two jumps out of the gate, she just took him there". Despite racing just twice this season, Enable could still challenge for Cartier Horse of the Year and Cartier Older Horse, especially if she triumphs November 3. I know I had a long run to the turn but I wanted to be not too wide.

'Magical took me on pretty early and after that it was a punch up to see who was the best.

The challenge facing the Europeans is not the travelling as it was when the Breeders' Cup was first established 35 years ago.

Leading Irish trainer Aidan O'Brien will be represented by his experienced three-year-old Mendelssohn in the contest. Gunnevera 3. Thunder Snow 4.
