Ria Antonia Wins Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies On DQ

Ria Antonia, second under the wire by a nose to She's A Tiger, was placed first in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies after a lengthy Steward's Inquiry. The disqualification came due to glancing contact She's A Tiger made with the filly in deep stretch during an epic stretch battle. She's A Tiger had lead the field from the gate under jockey Gary Stevens, but came under a strong challenge from Ria Antonia and Javier Castellano at the top of the stretch. The two fillies dueled to the wire, drifting into mid-track, all the while being chased by closer Rosalind on the inside. Ria Antonia drew to even terms with She's A Tiger, but the daughter of Tale of the Cat refused to yield, crossing the wire a nose in front.

 

After a lengthy stewards' inquiry, Ria Antonia was placed first. The filly by Rockport Harbor is trained by Jeremiah Englehart for Christopher Dunn and Looch Racing Stable. She paid $66.80 to win.

 

The race was marred by the breakdown of Bob Baffert's Secret Compass, who could not be saved due to the extent of her injuries. Secret Compass's jockey, John Velasquez, was injured in the spill and took off his mount, Alterite (FR) in the Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf.
