Europeans dominate BC Juvenile Turf

Donativum, bred in Great Britain, and the Irish-bred Westphalia finished 1-2 in today’s $1 million Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf at Santa Anita. It appeared midway through the stretch that Coronet of a Baron and jockey Alan Garcia were going to win at 6-1, but first Westphalia came charging to take the lead and then Donativum, trained by John Gosden and ridden by Frankie Dettori, accelerated quickest of all in the final sixteenth of a mile to win by a half-length at odds of 5-1. Westphalia took second by 1 3/4 lengths over Coronet of a Baron.
