Monday, 31st October 2005

After finishing 12th as favourite last year, Artie Schiller (El Prado-Hidden Light, by Majestic Light) "gained redemption" with a 0.75-lengths victory in this year's US$1.5 million Gr1 Breeders' Cup Mile (8 furlongs on turf) at Belmont Park, reported thoroughbredtimes.com. Artie Schiller (ridden by Garrett Gomez for trainer Jimmy Jerkins) defeated Brazilian-bred favourite (& winnner of his 8 previous starts) Leroidesanimaux (Candy Stripes-Dissemble, by Ahonoora) & former French-trained Gorella (Grape Tree Road-Exciting Times, by Jeune Homme). Artie Schiller now has 10 wins in 19 starts (also including the 2004 Gr2 Jamaica Handicap & Gr2 National Museum Of Racing Hall Of Fame Stakes, plus the 2005 Gr2 Maker's Mark Mile Stakes & Gr2 Bernard Baruch Handicap) for US$2,003,853 earnings.
