1986 BREEDERS' CUP (Entire Televised Broadcast from SANTA ANITA PARK / Commercial MID-LENGTH Version)
In this third Breeders' Cup renewal, you'll see two of the greatest horses of the last twenty years, the "Iron Lady", LADY'S SECRET, along with the great MANILA, the best turf horse since JOHN HENRY. Witness also the greatest Juvenile Colt field in Breeders' Cup history, featuring five future Derby horses, including the two who would win all three 1987 Triple Crown races, ALYSHEBA and BET TWICE.
1) JUVENILE COLTS - Here, both juvenile races were lengthened to their present distance of 1-1/16 miles. Watch speedy CAPOTE match strides with legends like GULCH, POLISH NAVY, future Derby favorite DEMONS BEGONE, BET TWICE and eventual 1988 Horse of the Year, ALYSHEBA, along with the tough QUALIFY.
2) JUVENILE FILLIES - Watch BRAVE RAJ trounce stars like Canada's RULINGANGEL, SAROS BRIG, SACAHUISCA and two undefeated gals, TAPIANO and PRANKSTRESS. But wait - the inquiry light goes on! Did BRAVE RAJ foul RULING ANGEL? You be the judge!
3) SPRINT - Can anyone beat heavily favored GROOVY? SMILE, second the year before, will try, along with TAYLOR'S SPECIAL, BEDSIDE PROMISE and filly, PINE TREE LANE.
4) DISTAFF - Watch the immortal LADY'S SECRET cement her claim to Horse-of-the-Year honors, beating a pair of former Breeders' Cup winners, OUTSTANDINGLY and TWILIGHT RIDGE, along with FRAN'S VALENTINE, making her third straight Breeders' Cup appearance, and CLASSY CATHY.
5) MILE - And what's this? There's a horse on the track who is the spitting image of CIGAR...and no wonder - he's PALACE MUSIC, CIGAR's future sire, along with AL MAMOON, European star filly SONIC LADY, THRILLSHOW, GLOW, FRED ASTAIRE and LAST TYCOON. Watch PALACE MUSIC's tremendous stretch drive - can he get up in time?
6) TURF - You can call this one the battle of the legends, as Europe's immortal DANCING BRAVE, hero of the Arc de Triomph, comes across the pond with fellow European DAHAR to take on American turf kings MANILA and THEATRICAL, along with his filly stable mate, Arlington Million heroine ESTRAPADE. MANILA has never lost on the turf, but can he overcome a troubled trip which finds him trapped on the rail?
7) CLASSIC - Billed as the duel between 1985 Breeders' Cup Sprint winner, PRECISIONIST, and the tremendous stretch-running TURKOMAN, but other tough-guys abound, such as 1986 Kentucky Derby second place horse BOLD ARRANGEMENT, SKYWALKER, ALPHABATIM, MOGAMBO and NOSTALGIA'S STAR.
Highlights include the first Breeders' Cup Steeplechase (won by CENSUS) along with two victories by LAFFIT PINCAY, Jr., and D. WAYNE LUKAS, showing why he was the decade's top trainer. In addition, you'll see two of the decade's top rivalries: ALYSHEBA vs. BET TWICE, one which would continue for two more years, and turf rivals THEATRICAL vs. MANILA.
