This weekend produced great results for the British at the Breeders’ Cup after a three-timer on Friday as Ryan Moore clocked up a double thanks to the horses Dank and Magician who won the Filly and Mare Turf.
Magician, trained by Aidan O’Brien, came late to deny John Gosden’s The Fugue in the mile and a half turf. Godsen said, “The horse has come late and she has not had a chance to come back at her.
Full marks to Aidan as the horse has not run since June. We got the race done and got caught late. That’s racing.”
Jockey Moore said of Magician, “He got a bump on the turn and lost his back end. Once I got him balanced he levelled off and really quickened. He has an awful lot of gears. He quickened like a very good horse.”
This week Moore is heading to Australia for the Melbourne Cup where he has the chance to become the first jockey to win a Breeders’ Cup and a Melbourne Cup in the same week. Moore will be riding the well backed Dandino and has odds of 10/1 at Bet365.
