The 2022 Breeders' Cup World Championships ended on Saturday with nine races, all with year-end championship implications, four of which were conducted over Keeneland's 7 1/2 furlong Haggin Turf Course in the infield. Unlike Friday the skies were mostly cloudy, temperatures in the mid 70's, with 40 MPH wind gusts giving competitors a stiff tailwind down the stretch, with the going firm.

Ryan Moore won the 20th Bill Shoemaker Award off three wins (Filly & Mare Turf, Juvenile Turf, and Juvenile Fillies Turf) and three seconds (Turf, Turf Sprint, and Juvenile Turf Sprint) The Award goes to the jockey who won the most races in the 14 World Championship races this weekend with the tiebreaker being a 10-3-1 point system for second- through fourth-place finishes. This was his second Shoemaker Award (after winning in 2015 also at Keeneland), breaking Irad Ortiz Jr.'s streak at 4 wins in a row.

Full results with several photos will available for each race sometime Sunday.



Rebel's Romance wins the Turf

The $4 million Longines Breeders' Cup Turf (G1) features older horses going 1 1/2 miles around 3 turns of the turf. Jockey Club Derby Invitational (G3) winner Nations Pride was sent off as the 3-1 favorite over 7-2 second choice War Like Goddess, winner of the Joe Hirsch Turf Classic Invitational (G1), and 4-1 third choice Mishriff, 13th in the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe (G1).

Jockey Feargal Lynch sent 48-1 Bye Bye Melvin to the lead around all three turns through fractions of 24.91, 49.42, 1:14.15, 1:38.92, and 2:03.25 while pressed by 44-1 Channel Maker and stalked by 12-1 Stone Age. Turning for home the pacesetters tired as 6-1 fourth choice Rebel's Romance, 10th early, came out 6 wide to gain the lead at the 3/16 pole. Kept to task by James Doyle, Rebel's Romance drew off to win by 2 1/4 lengths over Stone Age in a new course record time of 2:26.35, 0.55 seconds faster than the previous record. It was another 3/4 length back to late-running War Like Goddess third.

Left: Rebel's Romance in the paddock. Winning jockey James Doyle said, "It was a tremendous performance. Being back on fast ground suited him. He can be a quirky horse in the preliminaries, but he was good today. He was very relaxed and having the pony helped. The guys who look after him obviously, Charlie but also Rob Fitzpatrick who rides him out every day have once again done a great job. It's a great result to have a winner here as obviously my sister Sophie has been based out here as a jockey for a while now and I've let her down before at this meeting but I hope she's proud."

Right: Rebel's Romance heads back to the barn. Winning trainer Charlie Appleby said, "I am delighted to finish the meeting off with a winner. From the whole team's point of view, it's great to have James get first Breeders' Cup win and I'm delighted for him. Over the moon for him. It's been a great meeting. The horse has turned himself around, to be fair. You may think it was the switch to the turf, but I watched him train on the dirt here and I almost wished I was running him on the dirt here. Physically, you can just see that time has helped him."



Modern Games wins the Mile

The $2 million FanDuel Breeders' Cup Mile (G1) presented by PDJF featured a full field of 14 older horses. Woodbine Mile (G1) winner Modern Games was sent off as the 7-5 favorite over 11-2 second choice Annapolis, winner of the Coolmore Turf Mile (G1), and 9-1 third choice Kinross, winner of the British Champions Sprint (G1).

Jockey John Velazquez sent 29-1 Smooth Like Strait to the lead first time by through fractions of 23.00, 46.81, and 1:10.96 while pressed by 36-1 Pogo and stalked by 54-1 Beyond Brilliant. Entering the stretch Smooth Like Strait tired allowing Pogo to briefly inherit the front through 7f in 1:22.56 before also weakening. Modern Games, 8th early under William Buick, closed with a rush down the center of the course to win by 3/4 length over 56-1 Shirl's Speight in 1:33.96. It was a nose back to late-running Kinross third.

Left: Modern Games in the paddock. Winning jockey William Buick said, "He was really professional last year too (when he won the Juvenile Turf). Today, he was foot perfect. He just came out of the gate a little slow. He missed the break but I was happy where we were. Once I got him running, he stayed true. He loves this ground. I stayed off the rail. I thought he was the best horse in the race. I didn't want to take too many chances."

Right: Modern Games heads back to the barn. Winning trainer Charlie Appleby said, "A great result and another serious ride from Will. He's been a fantastic horse to travel. Later in the season we rolled the dice at Champions Day on soft ground and he probably got me over the line to win me the U.K. trainer's championship when he was second as in the UK it's done on prize money. Next year, the Queen Anne is the obvious target. He's getting a fanfare around world and it was great to see him applauded this year not like last year which was no fault of his own. We'll look to bring him back here next year. From this July onward he really changed physically and got stronger in all the right places. I thought he looked a picture in the paddock today and I was always quite confident when I saw him look that well."



Tuesday wins the Filly and Mare Turf

The $2 million Maker's Mark Breeders' Cup Filly and Mare Turf (G1) featured a field of 12 older fillies and mares going 1 3/16 miles on the turf. Prix de l'Opera (G1) runner-up Nashwa was sent off as the 5-2 favorite over 3-1 second choice In Italian, winner of the First Lady (G1), and 4-1 third choice Tuesday, 6th in the Prix de l'Opera.

Jockey Joel Rosario sent In Italian to the front first time by through fractions of 22.82, 46.38, and 1:10.31 while pressed by 49-1 Toy and stalked by 32-1 Lady Speightspeare. In the stretch In Italian continued to lead through 1 mile in 1:34.34 but Tuesday, 7th early under Ryan Moore, came out 5 wide and rallied to win by a length in a new course record 1:51.88. It was another 1/2 length back to Lady Speightspeare third.

Left: Tuesday in the paddock. Winning jockey Ryan Moore said, "The race was very straight forward. Pace was strong and even. She was in a good rhythm. I was always confident and finished up very well. Aidan had her in an unbelievable place today. The horse has been magnificent and has been most of year. She has bounced back."

Right: Tuesday heads back to the barn. Winning trainer Aidan O'Brien said, "She's a filly that won the (Epsom) Oaks when she was barely 3 and we were conscious of that and we let her dally through the rest of the year. We had our eye on this race for her. She's an amazing filly from an unbelievable pedigree as well. Totally 100 percent homebred which makes this incredible and a privilege for us. Ryan (Moore) gave her a stunning ride."



Caravel wins the Turf Sprint

The $1 million Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint (G1) featured a field of 12 older horses sprinting 5 1/2 furlongs around one turn. Woodford Stakes (G1) winner Golden Pal was sent off as the 6-5 favorite over 3-1 second choice Highfield Princess, winner of the Flying Five Stakes (G1) and 15-2 third choice Creative Force, third in the British Champions Sprint (G1).

Jockey Tyler Gaffalione sent 43-1 Caravel to the lead through fractions of 21.91 and 44.25 while pressed by 20-1 Arrest Me Red and stalked by 75-1 Artemus Citylimits. In the stretch 21-1 Emaraaty Ana moved up to challenge through 5f in 57.77 but Caravel held him off to win by 1/2 a length in 1:01.79. It was a neck back to Creative Force third, while favorite Golden Pal failed to rally and checked in 10th beaten 5 1/4 lengths.

Left: Caravel heads out for the post parade. Winning jockey Tyler Gaffalione said, "I feel amazing. She broke alertly. No one really went, so I decided to take control of things. Coming into the stretch, she just kept finding more. She's a very solid filly. She shows up every time. She's trained by one of the best in the country, Brad Cox. He brings them over ready to fire."

Right: Caravel heads back to the barn. Winning trainer Brad Cox said, "She was running back in 20 days, but had a race over the course. She was doing extremely, extremely well. She's filly that has had a hard time keeping on weight and since the end of the summer, she's really blossomed. We decided to take a swing and it worked out." 



The final race at Keeneland for 2022 was the $350,000 Fall Harvest Stakes presented by Mint Gaming Hall for older fillies and mares going 1 mile on the turf. Jockey Florent Geroux sent 5-1 fourth choice Burning Ambition to the lead first time by through fractions of 23.84, 47.85, and 1:11.91 while pressed by 7-2 second choice Dalika and stalked by 10-1 Stolen Holiday. Burning Ambition continued to lead through 7f in 1:23.54 but 4-1 third choice Wakanaka, last early, came out 6 wide under Joel Rosario and wore down 23-1 longest shot Henrietta Topham to win by 3/4 length in 1:35.37. It was another 1/2 length back to Burning Ambition third, while even-money favorite Shantisara failed to rally and checked in fifth beaten 4 1/4 lengths.

Winning owner Barry Irwin of Team Valor said, "We were hoping there would be more speed to materialize and it didn't really happen except for the first quarter. And when I saw her way back there, I didn't know how the hell she was gonna get up to tell you the truth. I was surprised. I own her with Gary Barber. We are both commercial. Everything we buy, we want to race and sell. I've changed my modus operandi. I'm a bid-ness-man... So we're hoping to make a profit." She is entered as Hip 237 at the November Breeding Stock Sale at Keeneland on Monday, consigned by Bluewater Sales.
