VIDEO: Parade of Breeders' Cup Champions

Video of Breeders' Cup champions
Kentucky’s display of national champions not only spread into the world of college basketball, but the horse racing world as well. On Sunday, Churchill Downs proudly featured the champions of the 2012 Breeders’ Cup at a ceremony in the paddock. Wise Dan, Groupie Doll, Little Mike, and Fort Larned were all paraded through the paddock in front of a large crowd. HorseRacingNation was on hand to capture some of the most talented horses in 2012.
 


 

As for what’s next for these champions: trainer Charles Lopresti said Wise Dan could possibly be pointed for the Woodford at Churchill Downs after a winter's rest. Groupie Doll will also get the winter to relax, which she definitely deserves. 2012 Breeders’ Cup Classic Champion Fort Larned will get a rest and head to Gulfstream for the winter. Trainer Ian Wilkes said he could be pointed for the Stephen Foster, a race he finished 8th in last year.

Thank you so much for sharing this video!
Loved this. There can never be too many good videos.
Great work, Kevin. Nice to see some of the sports' stars recognized on a day when they're not entered, but not retired yet either.
Steven Christ at DRF had a nice article relating to HOTY and the other awards. I don't remember it exactly but essentially he said one horse could get HOTY without neccessarily winning that division. Very interesting. I've always like SC as he has some really wild plays in the exotics, but they work, as there mathematically sound.
This shows who were the big winners at the Breeders Cup, not the west coast horses or the east coast horses. The big winners were the horses stabled in Kentucky. Best older horse in Fort Larned, best sprinter in Groupie Doll, best classic distance turf horse in Little Mike and Horse of the Year Wise Dan. Pretty good group.
This year's Horse of the Year could come down to a Buff Bradley horse vs. a Charles Lopresti horse ... Good for both of them!
A reliable source just confirmed ... the Cigar Mile is the plan for Groupie Doll.
Great stuff, Kevin, and now there's talk of Groupie Doll running in the Cigar Mile!
Hey, my girl, Groupie Doll was #13? But, very nice tribute to these champs and so good to see the fans having this opportunity to enjoy them. Loved Fort Larned's trainer watching the BCC win.
Nice tribute. Thanks for filming and sharing!
Extremely cool, Kevin ... Thanks for bringing us all a little closer to these wonderful champions!
