Ria Antonia handed win after stewards' inquiry
Report: USA, Saturday
Santa Anita: Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies (Grade 1) 1m, 2yo fillies
JOY turned to despair for the connections of She's A Tiger as a late bump on Ria Antonia (Jeremiah Englehart) was deemed enough to demote their filly from first to second after a stewards' inquiry.
In a race laced with drama there was also a horrible fall for Secret Compass, who was put down, and jockey John Velazquez, who was taken to hospital.
She's A Tiger looked to have given jockey Gary Stevens another Breeders' Cup success after he scorched off into the lead on his mount and clung on to pass the line in first.
She's A Tiger and Ria Antonia had got close in the final stages of the race with She's A Tiger drifting to her right and bumping Ria Antonia.
However, Javier Castellano, rider of Ria Antonia, immediately lodged an objection with the stewards and the result was flipped to promote the 40-1 second to first. Rosalind was third.
