Ectot Wins Joe Hirsch Turf Classic Stakes at Belmont Park

The $500,000 Grade 1 Joe Hirsch Turf Classic Stakes was contested Saturday, October 1 at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York. Horses three years old and upward took to Belmont Park's turf track and raced 1 1/2 miles. It was 9-1 shot Ectot that shocked the field in gate-to-wire fashion by an impressive five lengths to earn an automatic berth in the Breeders' Cup Turf at Santa Anita Park. Overwhelming 1-5 favorite Flintshire finished a somewhat disappointing second in the field of four with 11-1 shot Twilight Eclipse claiming third and 9-2 second choice Money Multiplier completing the order of finish.
