1991 BREEDERS' CUP (Entire Televised Broadcast from CHURCHILL DOWNS)
After the tragedy-marred 1990 Breeders Cup, this was a feel-good affair full of gallant performances, stunning upsets and winners from all over. It is most remembered for proving DANCE SMARTLY was one of the great, though underrated, fillies of all time, and for the unbelievable race by ARAZI, the one where so many experts decided he was the next SECRETARIAT!
1) SPRINT - The great HOUSEBUSTER hopes to end his career with a Breeders' Cup victory, but he must get past SHEIKH ALBADOU, PLEASANT TAP, ROBYN DANCER, SENOR SPEEDY and CLEVER TREVOR.
2) JUVENILE FILLIES - Can JULIE KRONE become the first woman to win a Breeders' Cup race aboard the favorite, PREACH? Or will it be PLEASANT STAGE, LA SPIA, CADILLAC WOMAN, CULTURE VULTURE, SPEED DIALER or VIVANO?
3) DISTAFF - 1991 Canadian Triple Crown winning filly DANCE SMARTLY is here to make it eight straight wins, including several vs. the boys! But can she beat VERSAILLES TREATY, BROUGHT TO
MIND, QUEENA or her tough stable mate WILDERNESS SONG?
4) MILE - Talk about a talent-laden field! All we have here is Arlington million winner TIGHT SPOT, classy Irish filly KOOYONGA, OPENING VERSE, VAL DES BOIS, STAR OF COZZENE, IN EXCESS, PRIOLO and speedy JOLIE'S HALO!
5) JUVENILE COLTS - California speedball BERTRANDO is undefeated, but can even he hold off French star ARAZI, SNAPPY LANDING, future Preakness winner PINE BLUFF and DANCE FLOOR? No suspense here, as ARAZI's victory is among the most impressive you will ever see - this was the race that made him history's heaviest Kentucky Derby favorite in 1992!
6) TURF - Another field featuring talent from Europe, Canada and America, with stars like French filly MISS ALLEGED, ITSALLGREEKTOME, QUEST FOR FAME, SKY CLASSIC going for seven straight, distance loving veteran EL SENOR, FILAGO, DEAR DOCTOR, PISTOLET BLEU, and another classy European filly, KARTAJANA.
7) CLASSIC - Perhaps the deepest, most talented field ever, with two Kentucky Derby winners (1990 winner UNBRIDLED, hoping to defend his Classic title, and 1991 winner STRIKE THE GOLD) facing 1990 Preakness winner SUMMER SQUALL, Argentine star FESTIN, Arlington Park speedball BLACK TIE AFFAIR going for six straight, TWILIGHT AGENDA, MARQUETRY and 1990 Juvenile winner FLY SO FREE!
Highlights besides the victories of DANCE SMARTLY and ARAZI include segments on RON McANALLY and his great JOHN HENRY, the sad bankruptcy of legendary Calumet Farm and a special feature on the legendary BILL SHOEMAKER. In addition, you will see three European winners, DANCE SMARTLY becoming Canada's first Breeders' Cup winner, and two wins by the team of ALLEN PAULSEN and PAT VALENZUELA.
