Repeat winners are few and far between in Breeders’ Cup races.

Repeat winners are exceptional in Breeders’ Cup races. Most rare is one fabulous thoroughbred aiming to break her record of three straight victories in the BC Mile next month. Goldikova should have an edge returning to Churchill Downs, where she defeated Gio Ponti by 1 ¾ lengths last time. A fourpeat for the 6-year-old exactly […]
