Midshipman Wins US Gr1 Breeders' Cup Juvenile

Monday, 27th October 2008

Former Arrowfield Stud shuttler Unbridled's Song (Unbridled-Trolley Song, by Caro) added a juvenile Gr1 triumph when front-running colt Midshipman (Unbridled's Song-Fleet Lady, by Avenue Of Flags) led all-the-way to score a 1.25-lengths victory in the US$2 million Gr1 Breeders' Cup Juvenile (8.5 furlongs on all-weather) for 2YO colts & geldings at Santa Anita & also notch his 2nd Gr1 win of the season. Midshipman (ridden by Garrett Gomez for trainer Bob Baffert) defeated favoured Canadian-bred colt Square Eddie (Smart Strike-Forty Gran, by El Gran Senor) & fellow Gr1-winning colt Street Hero (Street Cry-Squall Linda, by Summer Squall). At his previous start Kentucky-bred Midshipman (a half-brother to Gr2-winner Fast Cookie) suffered his 1st defeat when runner-up in last month's Gr1 Norfolk Breeders' Cup Stakes (8.5 furlongs on all-weather) at Santa Anita, after 3 weeks earlier winning the Gr1 Del Mar Futurity (7 furlongs on all-weather) at Del Mar. Overall Midshipman now has 3 wins & a runner-up from 4 starts for US$1,380,200 earnings. Darley Stable purchased Midshipman from breeder Stonerside Stable earlier this year.
