The turf and early afternoon slant of the California sun differed from yesterday's Distaff, but the result of the Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf (Gr. I) was a flashback to the narrow margin of victory between supermare Beholder and superfilly Songbird in that race. Queen's Trust (GB) and Frankie Dettori won the Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf by a nose over Lady Eli, with Avenge third and Seventh Heaven (IRE) fourth. The final time for the 1-¼ miles was 1:57.75. Queen’s Trust, a homebred three-year-old Dansili filly, is trained by Sir Michael Stoute and owned by Cheveley Park Stud.

 Meet Heidi Carpenter

 

An equestrian since 1986, Heidi has loved horses for as long as she can remember. She fell in love with the sport and history of Thoroughbred racing as a young girl after reading about the great champions of yesteryear, including Man o' War, Lexington, Equipoise, and Citation.

Heidi has a great interest in the stories, connections and images abound in Thoroughbred racing. She also enjoys studying pedigrees and racing history.

Heidi lives in the suburbs of Chicago with her husband (who is also a racing fan) and four cats, and has her beloved horse, Limerick, boarded nearby. Registered as Amanda Bry, Limerick is a 1991-model OTTB mare that Heidi has had since 1996. Heidi also runs Racing Reviewer.
