Breeders Cup 2011 - Mile


Goldikova came up short in her bid to be the first 4 time Breeders Cup winner after a brilliant effort in the mile. She was hemmed in around the turn and had to bump her way out before taking the lead but she couldn't hang on as Court Vision edged out Turallure by a whisker at the wire. Goldikova could have been taken down for her obvious bump of Courageous Cat (and others) but the stewards left her number up for third. Again all 3 were descendants of the Dancer.

1) Court Vision - great great grandson
2) Turallure - great grandson
3) Goldikova - great granddaughter x2
