Betting on New York-based horses in the nine Breeders’ Cups at Santa Anita has been costly, especially on the main track. Only 15 winners, including five short-priced superstars: Manila, Lady’s Secret, Lure, Royal Delta and Lady Eli). Nine winners were on turf, and Chad Brown trained six of them.
Here’s the rundown:
|2016||3||Chad Brown||New Money Honey||Juvenile Fillies Turf|
|2016||3||Kiaran McLaughlin||Tamarkuz||Dirt Mile|
