Court Vision came from nowhere to nose fellow closer Turallure in a roughly run renewal of the Breeders' Cup Mile.
Goldikova, seeking an unprescedented fourth Mile win, had to settle for the show.
Jeranimo, Get Stormy, and Sidney's Candy took the early initiative with Goldikova neatly tucked in at the rail and Courageous Cat to her outside.
Sidney's Candy poked his head in front after six furlongs but the closers were gathering momentum and a tight finish seemed inevitable.
Goldikova bullied her way off the rail, pushing Courageous Cat out of her way and causing a chain reaction that left the latter plummeting to the back of the pack.
The 3-time Mile champ found the lead in the stretch but Court Vision and Turallure stomed past her and reached the wire as a team.
It was Court Vision by a scant nose over an unlucky Turallure. Goldikova was a length back in 3rd with Gio Ponti right behind her in 4th.
Patrick Valenzuela aboard Courageous Cat lodged an objection against Goldikova but it was dismissed.
Court Vision, trained by Dale Romans and ridden to victory by Robby Albarado, paid $131.60.
