Yesterday Kentucky jockey Calvin Borel competed with Javier Castellano in the winner’s circle. Javier Castellano was so reckless that he even veered his horse into the path of several other horses, for which he was disqualified from bagging the second position. The first position of course went to Calvin Borel. In the Filly And Mare Turf, it was Midday, who was regarded as the best European performer, getting the second position, preceded by a horse trained by Graham Motion, who trains in Maryland. Henry Cecil, Midday’s trainer, said that she performed her best, but nothing better could be expected from her as she gave a few tough performances a few days earlier and therefore, in November she was not at her best. In the Filly and Mare Sprint, Dubai Majesty emerged as the winner. She gave a tough competition to Gabby’s Golden Gal and Champagne d’Oro, to posting a three length score. She covered 7 furlongs in 1:22.31, thereby beating California invader Switch, finishing about three length ahead. Switch is also regarded as a very competent horse as she gave a cut throat competition, to Zenyatta in their latest competition, Lady’s Secret at Oak Tree in Hollywood Park, falling behind her by just half a length. In Filly and Mare Sprint, Evening Jewel, of California came third. In Juvenile Fillies, Awesome Feather came first, followed by R Heat Lightning and Delightful Mary.

Today’s events will be all more exciting as the super star Zenyatta horse is all set to get her twentieth victory. If she wins tis cup, she would move towards a graceful retirement, with twenty undaunted consecutive victory.
