Tourist Wins Breeders' Cup Mile at Santa Anita Park
The $2 million G1 Breeders' Cup Mile went down Saturday, November 5 at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, California. Horses three years old and upward were featured in this one mile turf test. WinStar Farm, Wachtel Stable, and Gary Barber's Tourist ran the race of his life and upset the field at 12-1 odds - by just a half length over fast closing defending champion and 7-2 favorite Tepin - in stakes-record time. Midnight Storm held on for third at 12-1 while second betting choice Ironicus closed for fourth, Miss Temple City was a creditable fifth and European invader Limato was sixth. Ring Weekend was next in the field of 14 followed by Cougar Mountain, Hit It a Bomb, 4-1 Alice Springs, Spectre, Dutch Connection, Photo Call and What a View to complete the order of finish.
