One of the most competitive races we’ve seen so far! Modern Games secured the victory in the Breeders Cup Mile. Here is the 2022 BC Mile Recap.
Breeders Cup Mile
Grade 1 – Purse $2,000,000 – 1 Mile – Turf – 3yo+
The British raider Pogo broke smartly from the inside gate post. He set plenty of speed along with Smooth Like Strait. As they headed down the backstretch the well-fancied Annapolis found himself far back along with the eventual third Kinross under Frankie Dettori.
As they came out of the backstretch the winner Modern Games found himself having to tip out to the six-lane to get a stretch run, and as jockey Buick set his horse alight, he came and grabbed Ivar who had taken the lead coming inside the final furlong, and went away to secure an impressive victory.
Shirls Speight and Kinross could not go with Modern Games. When he quickened up, they both closed strongly all the way to the wire but were never able to land a blow on the Godolphin favorite who was the 6/5 chalk on the boards and ran out a worthy winner.
One horse to take out of the race is the French Filly Malavath who came with a searing run down the fence but could not sustain that effort and a cut back in distance to 7 furlongs should see her back in the winner’s enclosure.
