Breeders Cup 2012 Marathon

They go from one extreme to the other. The Sprint was just 3/4 mile for 2 year-olds and next up the Marathon 1-3/4 mile featuring older horses. The winner is the oldest ever to win a Breeders Cup Race - it's the 9 year-old Argentinian bred Calidoscopio. The one common theme between these first 2 races - top 3 once again are all descendants of the Dancer.

1) Calidoscopio (ARG) great great grandson
2) Grassy (USA) great grandson
3) Atigun (USA) great great great grandson
