Bayern survived a stewards’ inquiry to win the Breeders’ Cup Classic at Santa Anita Park. The win gave trainer Bob Baffert his first Breeders’ Cup Classic victory. The speedy colt came over in the first jumps out of the gate and bumped the post time favorite Shared Belief, who in turn bumped Moreno who was to his inside. After a lengthy review of the tape, the stewards made no change giving Bayern the Classic win. Toast of New York ran a great race–just missing by a nose, and Kentucky Derby winner California Chrome was just a neck behind him in third place in a valiant try. He ran a determined race, and looked like he was going to possibly win in the stretch. Bayern, Toast of New York, and California Chrome ran 1-2-3 the entire race in a classic thriller. Shared Belief settled for a fourth place finish 3 1/2 lengths behind California Chrome after the early trouble. Breeders’ Cup Classic Chart
