In race that saw its complexion completely change at the start when two-time Breeders’ Cup winner and favorite Golden Pal broke last, front-running Caravel upset the Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint (G1T) Nov. 5 at Keeneland.
Caravel, a 5-year-old daughter of Mizzen Mast , defeated males in completing the 5 1/2 furlongs on firm turf in 1:01.79. Campaigned by Qatar Racing, Marc Detampel, and Madaket Stables, and trained by Brad Cox, Caravel secured the first grade 1 win of her career. She was guided to victory by Tyler Gaffalione.
