Breeders Cup Odds

2023 Yasuda Kinen

Grade 1 – Purse $2,499,000 – 1600 meters (1 mile) – Turf – 3-Year-Olds and Up

We had a deep field for this Grade 1 and they did not disappoint in throwing up a thriller.

The early speed was set by Win Carnelian who tracked across from a wide gate and she was followed closely by Jack D’or and Sodashi as they went down the backstretch at a strong gallop.

Last year’s winner and the victor again SONGLINE was poised in a good position in mid-pack and traveling in hand under jockey Keita Tosaki, while his big rival Schnell Meister was held up near the back of the field for his customary late close.

As they hit the home stretch Win Carnelian led but was grabbed at the 400 meters (2 furlongs) pole by Jack D’or but the cavalry was charging, and out of the pack came Songline who showed a devastating burst of speed to hit the front just 50 yards from the wire to widen by a length and a quarter.

Serifos closed late for second with Schnell Meister (undoubtedly unlucky in the run) closing the fastest to take the third spot with the grey Gaia Force also closing late for the fourth spot.
