2023 Breeders' Cup Turf: Auguste Rodin magnificent victory

The world-leading trainer Aidan O’Brien has charted the career of many superstars but Auguste Rodin might be the best of them all, as the brilliant colt banked yet another top-level score in the G1 2023 Breeders’ Cup Turf under a brilliant ride from Ryan Moore.

Rodin rolls them flat

It was one of the best fields ever assembled for the Turf and Auguste Rodin was magnificent in victory, stamping himself one of the all-time Irish greats when surging up the rail to win his fourth G1 of 2023 from the gallant home hope Up To The Mark and the Japanese raider Shahryar.

If the horse was a marvel, so was the ride from Ryan Moore, who saved ground all the way and found a rich seam of daylight on the turn, steering the 5-2 favourite into the clear and into the lead past the front-running Balladeer.

That was the ballgame, that little piece of magic clinching the race in a few strides. Auguste Rodin is a strong stayer and there was no catching him, and although Up To The Mark rallied gamely all the way to the line he could never land a blow. Auguste Rodin took the money by a length, with Shahryar a half-length back in third.

Auguste Rodin has now won G1s in three countries, following his victories in the Derby at Epsom and the Irish Derby at the Curragh. It was a record-extending seventh win in the Turf for trainer Aidan O’Brien, and Moore’s fifth win in the race.
