Breeders Cup 2014 - Classic

In the big race it was a clean sweep for the US breds with Bayern coming out on top, going wire to wire with Toast Of New York finishing second and California Chrome finishing third. Of course, all three were descendants of my little Canadian hero Northern Dancer.

1) Bayern - great great great grandson through Storm Bird
2) Toast Of New York - great great grandson x5 through Sadlers Wells, Danzig
3) California Chrome - great great grandson through the prolific daughter Dance Number

Well that a wrap for this year`s Breeders Cup Races (at leats the big 8 races). Of the 24 top 3 finishers all 24 were descendants of Northern Dancer and while it was a great day for US breds there were still 5 countries on 3 continents represented in the breeding of these Dancer grandkids and Northern Dancer`s daughters were well represented.
