Trained by Ken McPeek for owner and breeder Catesby Clay, Rogue Romance earned his way into the $1 million Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf  (gr. IIT) Nov. 6 at Churchill Downs by winning the 1 1/16-mile Bourbon, a "Win and You're In" challenge race.

With Julien Leparoux delivering  the winning hand ride, Rogue Romance, a lukewarm 3-1 choice in the field of 12, closed powerfully while six wide on the outside to defeat Cozy Kitten by 2 1/2 lengths.
