World Approval Wins Breeders' Cup Mile at Del Mar

Del Mar racetrack in Del Mar, California was the scene of the $2 million G1 Breeders' Cup Mile on Saturday, November 4. Horses three years old and upward were featured when they lined up on Del Mar's turf track and raced one mile. Live Oak Plantation's homebred, 5-2 favorite World Approval proved best on the day, emerging out of the 14-horse field by 1 1/4 lengths - he was one of the only betting darlings to prevail on a crazy day of racing in Southern California. Lancaster Bomber finished second at 13-1 odds with 19-1 shot Blackjackcat snapping a four-race win streak and claiming third. 8-1 third choice Suedois was fourth while 7-2 second choice Ribchester, Zelzal, Karar, Om, Ballagh Rocks, Heart to Heart, Roly Poly, Midnight Storm, Mr. Roary, and Home of The Brave completed the order of finish.
