Saturday, November 5, 2011
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Caleb's Posse came charging down the stretch to overtake pacesetter Shackleford and win the $1 million Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile by four lengths.
Ridden by Rajiv Maragh, Caleb's Posse ran one mile in 1:34.59 on Saturday at Churchill Downs. The 3-year-old colt paid $15.60 at 6-1 odds.
Shackleford was second and Tres Borrachos was another 134 lengths back in third.
Caleb's Posse's previous biggest victory was over Uncle Mo in the King's Bishop at Saratoga in August. Uncle Mo was the morning-line favorite in the $5 million Classic later Saturday.
