Data Link got a perfectly timed ride from Alex Solis when notching the first stakes victory of his career in posting a 12-1 upset in the 24th running of the Grade 1, $300,000 Maker's 46 Mile on a seasonal Friday afternoon at Keeneland.
The lightly raced Hansen went gate-to-wire to upset heavy favorite Union Rags by a nose in the Grade 1, $2 million Breeders' Cup Juvenile at Churchill Downs on Saturday.
For me, the Breeders' Cup has always been a special event.
Since I last updated this blog, I've been in New Jersey, France, Philadelphia, Canada, Indiana, New York, and Louisville
Turallure mounted a powerful rally from out of traffic under a daring ride from Julien Leparoux to capture Sunday's $1 million Woodbine Mile.
Turallure could not make up ground after Sidney's Candy's was allowed to get away with a snail-like pace in the Fourstardave Handicap earlier in the meet.
