Starcraft 7th In New York

Monday, 31st October 2005

Australia's 5-time Gr1 winner Starcraft finished 7th (in the field of 13) behind Saint Liam in the Gr1 Breeders' Cup Classic at Belmont Park. The winning time was 2min 1.49sec. Starcraft (who was having his 1st start on dirt) started from the extreme outside barrier &, though well positioned on the home turn, faded in the straight when the hard run from the wide gate took its toll. Among the other international visitors in the race, both Irish trainer Aidan O'Brien's Oratorio & UK trainer Gerard Butler's Jack Sullivan finished among the tail-enders.
