two days in Kentucky, Nov. 5-6, many of the best horses in the world
will line up to compete for $25.5 million, and so naturally several
Texans will be on hand. The two leading trainers in the country, Texas
native Todd Pletcher and Arlington resident Steve Asmussen, will be
well represented, of course, in the Breeders’ Cup. But the list of
Texans won’t stop there.
Bret Calhoun, who topped the standings at Lone Star Park during the
recent thoroughbred meeting, will saddle two Breeders’ Cup horses:
Dubai Majesty, who’s owned in partnership by Bill Martin of Dallas, in
the $1 million Filly & Mare Sprint; and Chamberlain Bridge, who’s
owned by Carl Moore of Fort Worth, in the $1 million Turf Sprint. Both
horses look like contenders.
“Dubai Majesty has proven herself many times,” Calhoun said about
the filly who has earned nearly $970,000 and who twice has won the
Winning Colors Stakes at Churchill Downs, “and she ran one of the best
races of her life a the Churchill.”
