Two Down: Marathon and Juvenile Fillies Turf

Posted by Brian Appleton on November 5, 2010

Eldaafer made it two wins in-a-row when he surged to the lead in the first Breeders’ Cup race of the day and claimed the crown as 2010 Breeders’ Cup Marathon champion. Left in his wake was race favorite Awesome Gem who raced last for most of the trip before failing to fire his nest shot.

The Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf was supposed to be all about Winter Memories, but More Than Real had other ideas as the dark bay filly romped in style over Winter Memories. Owned by celebrity chef Bobby Toay, More Than Real swept off the final turn in the Fillies Turf and flew to the wire, winning a visually impressive race.
