Outstrip roars to win in BC Juvenile Turf
ARCADIA, Calif. (AP) — Outstrip roared down the center of the turf course, overtaking the leaders just before the finish line to win the $1 million Juvenile Turf by a length and giving jockey Mike Smith his second Breeders’ Cup win of the day.
Owned by Godolphin Racing, Outstrip covered a mile in 1:33.20 and paid $14, $6.80 and $3.60 at 6-1 odds on Friday at Santa Anita.
Giovanni Boldini returned $6.40 and $3.40. Bobby’s Kitten, the 7-5 favorite, was another half-length back in third and paid $2.40 to show.
Smith extended his record for Breeders’ Cup victories among jockeys to 19. He won the $500,000 Marathon aboard London Bridge in the opening race of the two-day world championships.
Trainer Charlie Appleby won his first Breeders’ Cup race with his first starter.
