ARCADIA, Calif. (AP) Betting favorite Dank held off a trio of horses down the stretch to win the $2 million Breeders' Cup Filly & Mare Turf.
Ridden by Ryan Moore, Dank covered 1 1/4 miles on the turf in 1:58:73 and paid $5, $3.40 and $2.80 on Saturday at Santa Anita. Romantica finished a half-length behind Dank and returned $5.20 and $4, while French-bred Alterite was edged by a nose, paying $7 to show.
The 4-year-old filly had won her last two races, including the Grade 1 Beverly D at Arlington Park in August.
It was the sixth Breeders' Cup win for trainer Michael Stoute, his last coming in 2009 with Conduit in the Turf.
