The $1.5 million Breeders' Cup Sprint was contested Saturday, November 4 at Del Mar racetrack in Del Mar, California.

Rockingham Ranch and David Bernsen's 5-year-old 9-2 third betting choice Roy H proved best on the day, utilizing a strong stretch run to hit the wire first by a length. 4-1 second choice Imperial Hint was caught in the end and settled for second, two lengths clear of third-place finisher 9-1 Mind Your Biscuits. American Pastime finished fourth in the field of 10 while Ransom the Moon, 7-5 race favorite Drefong, Calculator, Whitmore, B Squared, and Takaful completed the order of finish.
