1985 BREEDERS' CUP (Entire Televised Broadcast from AQUEDUCT PARK)
This day at the races is loaded with superstars such as future Belmont winner DANZIG CONNECTION, future sprint star GROOVY, future great sire STORM CAT, West Coast star PRECISIONIST, COZZENE, the immortal LADY'S SECRET, who would become 1986's Horse-of-the-Year, THEATRICAL and the great English filly PEBBLES, among others - a virtual, "Who's Who", of mid-1980's racing!
1) JUVENILE COLTS - Features top names like TASSO, DANZIG CONNECTION, MAGAMBO, SCAT DANCER, GROOVY and STORM CAT. With this many stars, you'd expect a photo-finish...which is exactly what you get!
2) JUVENILE FILLIES - Owner GENE KLEIN and trainer D. WAYNE LUKAS steal the show with a spectacular three-filly entry of TWILIGHT RIDGE, FAMILYSTYLE and AREWEHAVINGFUNYET. But these must hold off STEAL A KISS and SILENT ACCOUNT. Enjoy this, as the fillies end up running a faster mile than the colts!
3) SPRINT - Stars a plenty here with the great PRECISIONIST taking on MT. LIVERMORE, SMILE, PANCHO VILLA (one of SECRETARIAT's most famous sons), FIGHTING FIT and ZIGGY'S BOY. Watch PRECISIONIST strut his stuff late, just missing the track record!
4) MILE - Watch COZZENE match strides with the likes of TSUNAMI SLEW and tough Europeans AL MAMOON, SHADEED and ROUSILLON. But nobody can stop the great gray COZZENE today, as he too just misses the track record!
5) DISTAFF - Here's KLEIN and LUKAS with another three-horse entry - as if super-filly LADY'S SECRET needs any help! But can she hold off her tough stable mate LIFE'S MAGIC - or stars like FRAN'S VALENTINE and DONTSTOPTHEMUSIC? For the second time today, KLEIN and LUKAS grab the top two spots!
6) TURF - Could you believe ten stars in one race? Watch defending champ LASHKARI try to repeat against several tough guys (Arlington Million winner TELEPROMPTER, GREINTON, STRAWBERRY ROAD, coming superstar THEATRICAL, MOURJANE, SHARANNPOUR and WHO'S FOR DINNER) along with fine mare PERSIAN TIARRE and super English filly PEBBLES. Against this competition, PEBBLES lays claim to immortality by not only beating such top males, but setting a track record at 2:27!!!
7) CLASSIC - CHIEF'S CROWN goes after Horse-of-the-Year honors in taking on GATE DANCER, PROUD TRUTH, TURKOMAN, VANLANDINGHAM, TRACK BARRON and IMPERIAL CHOICE. But in the end, it's PROUD TRUTH and GATE DANCER battling down the stretch in a dramatic climax to another great Breeders' Cup!
Highlights include LUKAS laying claim to Trainer of the Year, LIFE'S MAGIC taking the stage from stable mate LADY'S SECRET and PEBBLES new track record showing why Europeans rate her with the all time great fillies! In addition, you get a report on the history of horses (thoroughbreds in particular) and on syndication - learn how you can make a bundle becoming even a part owner of a top sire!
