2022 bc turf recap: rebel's romance snatched the prize

And the Breeders Cup Turf has produced yet another winner for the European raiders. Also, it produced another winner for the Godolphin team and master trainer Charlie Appleby. Here is the 2022 BC Turf Recap.

So it was a win for Godolphin, but not with the more fancied Nations Pride. However, with Rebel’s Romance, this was an emphatic win for the son of super sire Dubawi.

Breeders Cup Turf

Grade 1 – Purse $4,000,000 – 1 1/2 Miles – Turf – 3yo+

In the race itself, it was Bye Bye Melvin and Channel Maker who set out to make the speed, but the early fractions for the quarter and the half-mile were slow. It meant the field was tightly packed as they came out of the clubhouse turn and into the backstretch the final time.

Nations Pride was perfectly placed in sixth as they headed into the far turn while on the front end, Aiden O’Brien’s Stone Age was poised on the inside ready to make a stretch run.

The definite hard luck story of the race was War Like Goddess who had been dropped in close to the rear but made her move as they came to the top of the home turn. She was in 9th and seven lengths off the lead, but she had to delay her move which definitely cost her the place podium finish.

Meanwhile, the veteran Mishriff had spun wide off the turn, and for a moment it looked like we might see a fairytale ending for the Gosden horse, but he could only stay on at one pace for a very good fourth on his final career start.
