I really enjoyed this year's Breeders Cup race's, highlighted by Zenyatta's remarkable win in the Classic. But this really was a weekend that showcased a great deal of female talent. Other than Zenyatta, the next biggest performances for me over the weekend were Informed Decision winning the F&M Sprint, Goldikova defending her Mile title, and Life is Sweet winning the Ladies Classic. Of the male's, I think Conduit repeating as champion in the B.C. Turf sticks out the most to me. A very classy and competitive horse that will have this championship as a great caper to a great career. But I'd also like to throw a shout out to a couple of 2nd place finishers. In the B.C. Turf, I thought Presious Passion would run himself out of the race but he showed a ton of heart digging in a taking Conduit to the edge and hanging on for 2nd against two very good horses in Dar Re Mi and Spanish Moon. Also, imo, enough can't be said about the game performance that Gio Ponti put up in the Classic. Even though losing to a superstar in Zenyatta, Gio Ponti looked as tough over the pro-ride surface Saturday as he has in some of his turf races. So prop's to Presious Passion and Gio Ponti for their terrific efforts on Saturday.
