The impressive 3-year-old filly Goldikova became the fifth distaffer to win the $2 million Breeders’ Cup Mile, beating defending champion Kip Deville by 1 1/4 lengths. The 9-5 betting favorite, who came in having won three consecutive graded stakes, including two Grade I’s, lacked racing room at the head of the stretch but found a hole and accelerated impressively to win going away under regular jockey Olivier Peslier. Goldikova has now won 6 of 9 overall, with two seconds and a third. The Irish-bred daughter of Anabaa joins Six Perfections (2003), Ridgewood Pearl (1995), Miesque (1987-88) and Royal Heroine (1984) as the only female horses to win the Mile in its 25 runnings. Whatsthescript finished third.
