Found finds more Stateside
A final race defeat for Golden Horn who failed to repel a remarkable reverse of recent form with Found at Keeneland last night.
The Breeders Cup Turf went the way of Ryan Moore and Aidan O’Brien as the filly Found maintained a slight advantage at the post after hitting the front not far from home to finally land a big one this season and gain revenge on the Arc, Derby and Irish Champion Stakes winner.
Aidan O’Brien was over the moon…. “She’s a very special filly, when you think she has run in two Champion Stakes and an Arc, and now this. To do it all in a month is remarkable. I thought the lads’ decision to come here was a little bit far fetched to be honest, but she didn’t have any luck in any of her races. I take my hat off to them for running her.”
“She is very tough filly. To run in the Champion Stakes and the Arc and to come here is amazing. She beat a champion and that is special, too. I had to go around one and then I had to go.” Ryan Moore.
Of the second it wasn’t to be for jockey Dettori….. “He ran a great race, though. He was labouring from the top of the stretch.”
John Gosden was aware of the risks taken…. “We always knew we were taking a risk running on ground like this that is softer than anything he’s run on before. It was too loose for him, but full marks to the filly for beating us fair and square. I said to everyone beforehand that after all the rain and three inches of it, it would be far from ideal and the winner is bred to enjoy it more than us.”
