Four Best European Performances From The Breeders Cup Weekend

Tarnawa

The first horse we must discuss is the Dermot Weld trained Tarnawa who is a horse that has come out of nowhere and has this season gone on to land three consecutive Group One races.

The daughter of Shamardal has come one leaps and bounds as a four year old, having shown signs of talent as a three year old but taking that to a new level this term.

She has gone unbeaten in all four of her events this year with a win at Cork in a Group Three setting her up for a triple Group one winning spree in France and America.

Ahead of Arc weekend she went to Longchamp for the Prix Vermeille and saw off the likeable Raabihah to take the Group One event.

She then backed that up when stepping down to 1 mile 2 furlongs in the Prix de l'Opera seeing off the smart Alpine Star in the final stages.

Having shown versatility on both good and soft ground, her handler knew she had a live chance in the Breeders Cup turf however the ground turned out.

She was taking on her best field yet with the likes of seven time Group One winner Magical and whole host of other black type winning horses from the US and Europe.

With Christophe Soumillon set to take the ride but testing positive for Covid-19, Colin Keane stepped up to give her a superb patient ride which saw her go wide around the whole field to cruise up in the final stages to take the prestigious event.

Order Of Australia

Aidan O'Brien as ever had a superb time of things at the Breeders' Cup meeting and pulled off one of the biggest shocks at the festival this term when 40/1 Order Of Australia landed the Breeders' Cup Mile.

The Ballydoyle horse only got into the race a day before the event with the William Haggas trained One Master being pulled out and that allowed Pierre-Charles Boudot to sit on Order Of Australia and land the Group One.

The son of Australia was 40/1 for a reason giving his best efforts over 10 and 12 furlongs during his career and only ever once running over a mile before Saturday.

However, like the trainer has done before, he pulled off a training miracle to get the colt to win the race and he also landed a 1-2-3 in the event with Circus Maximus and Lope Y Fernandez finishing in the places.

Glass Slippers

A race that European runners have not had a good record in over the years was the Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint but this year the owners were going back to England.

Kevin Ryan as many will know is a master trainers with his sprinting horses and he can now say he is a Breeders' Cup winner after Glass Slippers landed the Group One sprint event.

Having won the Group One Prix de l'Abbaye last season, she finished fifth at Royal Ascot in the King's Stands Stakes and improved for that run when a good second behind Battaash.

She got her season going in the Group One Flying Five Stakes at the Curragh when landing the black type event and then last time out finished a narrow second when trying to defend her title in the Abbaye in France.

Having shown previously she could handle the quick ground, her connections were quietly confident and at 10/1 she stole the show in the final stages.

Ryan has only ever had two runners at the meeting over the last two seasons and he has come away with a second and now a first.

Audarya

Finally, one of he best stories of the two day meeting for British Raiders was Audarya landing the Group One Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf for trainer James Fanshawe.

It was the handlers first ever winner at the meeting and arguably it is the greatest moment in his training career, with the trainer not known for his black type winners.

The man of the moment Pierre-Charles Boudot gave the filly a superb ride and it saw him land the first of his Breeders' Cup double across the Saturday.

The four year old at the back end of last term was off a mark of 87 and now she is a Group One winner in France and America.
