Tiznow defeated Arc winner Sakhee to win his second straight Breeders' Cup Classic.
What a Cup!
This year's World Throughbred Championships may not have started out that smoothly -- with Distaff contender Exogenous involved in a freak accident -- but the day would produce some of the most compelling moments in the event's history. Yes, trainer Bobby Frankel finally got his first Cup win and the Europeans dominated in four of the other seven-figure races. But the day's greatest moment came, as it should have, in a thrilling Classic, when Tiznow became the first horse to repeat in the $4-million race.
