Starlight Racing's undefeated 2-year-old Shanghai Bobby will travel to California to compete in the Breeders’ Cup World Championships Nov. 3 at Santa Anita Park, it was announced Oct. 8.

 

After winning the Oct. 6 Champagne Stakes (gr. I) at Belmont Park, the Harlan’s Holiday colt will compete in the $2 million Grey Goose Breeders' Cup Juvenile (gr. I) at the World Championships, which will be held at Santa Anita Nov. 3. 

 

A winner of all four starts with earnings of $607,000, Shanghai Bobby bested a field of six in the Champagne, winning by an easy five lengths. The victory earned him an automatic berth in the Juvenile with entry fees paid and also gave him ten points toward a start in the 2013 Kentucky Derby (gr. I).

 

“Todd and I discussed our options this morning," said Starlight Racing's managing partner Jack Wolf. "The colt came out of the race in great shape and has given us every indication that he belongs. He’s done everything that’s been asked of him and more. We are very excited for our partners and team and feel fortunate to have such a talented colt headed to the World Championships.”

 

The Breeders’ Cup Juvenile is the richest 2-year-old race in North America. The 1 1/16-mile event is restricted to juvenile males and is often a preview of the stars of the Triple Crown races for the following year.

This is very good news. I was afraid they would not run because not wanting to ship or run without Lasix. If possible the best horses should run in the Breeders Cup, like it or not it is our year end championships and it is important for the sport to have a strong Breeders Cup. The Lasix issue is a little more difficult, and we will have to see how everything turns out, but wouldn't it be nice if it turns out every horse in the United States doesn't really need drugs to race?
