Big Hits from Little Guys … Breeders’ Cup 2010 Day 1

Whoda thunk the most action of the first day of BC 2010 would be in the MARATHON?  The race so boring people wish they’d cancel it was the scene of some crazy riding and major dumb-assery.


At the top of the stretch in the 1 3/4 mile Marathon, Javier Castellano, riding Prince Will, I Am spied a tiny space that just so happened to be in front of Martin Garcia on Romp.  Castellano steered his horse into that hole, cutting off Garcia and causing Romp to clip heels with Prince Will I Am.  Romp nearly went down, and Garcia flew completely out of the saddle.  Only by his sheer athleticism (I’d like for the guys who claim jocks aren’t athletes to watch this race & try to make their argument again…) did Garcia manage to not get killed.  Unfortunately, when Romp stumbled, he took out Calvin Borel’s horse, A. U. Miner.  Borel & A. U. Miner weren’t hurt but they lost all chance at the race, in which A. U. Miner was one of the favorites.  Meanwhile, Castellano on Prince Will I Am made it out of the pack and challenged Eldaafer in the homestretch.  Eldaafer drew off to win with Prince Will I Am second.  If the drama on the track wasn’t enough, the thrills and spills continued in the winner’s circle.
