But not without some anxious moments for the Hall of Fame trainer and co-owners Gary and Mary West. "When he took the lead, for a second he was waiting for other horses". "That's how good a horse he is".

Ridden by Joel Rosario, Accelerate, sent off as the 5-2 favorite, sat four lengths back early in the 1 1/4-mile race.

"He likes Churchill Downs so that's a good sign", Baffert said with a laugh. "These races are hard to win. We did our best but weren't quite good enough", said O'Brien, who brought 15 horses to Kentucky and departed without a victor. An additional stakes race this year bumps the two-day program to 14 and prize money up to a record $30 million. Game Winner also emerged as one of the year's top Juveniles. Knicks Go returned $21.40 and $11.20, and Signalman paid $15.80.

"He broke fine, but it looked like they took my spot and I had to go wide".

There are also a few red flags in going with Accelerate at a 5-2 premium. He seemed like he didn't mind that.

Frankie Dettori charted a wide course throughout and loomed widest of all around the home turn with Ryan Moore saving some ground to split horses inside him aboard Magical.

The Derby may draw more eyes, but the Breeders' Cup Classic has always been one of the richest races in thoroughbred competition, if not the premier event of the sport - the fourth and final leg of the Grand Slam of Thoroughbred racing after the American Triple Crown circuit. An ankle issue forced Justify to retire unbeaten in July, leaving Saturday's marquee Breeders' Cup Classic without the sport's most notable horse.

Thomas was drafted by the Broncos with the 22nd overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft. He has five consecutive seasons of at least 90 catches and 1,000 receiving yards.

Accelerate's challengers include a strong foreign contingent that features Japanese-bred Yoshida, trained by two-time Classic victor Bill Mott and owned by WinStar Farm and China Horse Club International - who teamed up to take Justify to the Triple Crown. This one required more work before 42,249 on a brisk, overcast day on a track that was fast after two days of heavy rain. While his absence removes some luster from this year's Breeders' Cup Classic, it remains a race packed with talent.

- Line of Duty survived a lengthy postrace review before stewards upheld his half-length victory over Uncle Benny in the $1 million Juvenile Turf.

Bob Baffert's decision to not run Justify in the Classic is offset by two horses coming off six-month breaks.

A strong day for NY racing talent also featured recent Belmont Fall Meet leaders Chad Brown, Ortiz, Jr., and Klaravich Stables combine to win the $1-million Juvenile Fillies Turf with Newspaperofrecord. First, Stormy Liberal defended his title in the $1-million Turf Sprint, surging late after a stretch-long duel to defeat World of Trouble.

Rosario, who won the Juvenile Fillies on the back of Jaywalk earlier in the day, was looking to continue his winning ways when riding favorite Accelerate in the US$6 million Breeders' Cup Classic yesterday.

Dettori, though, left Kentucky having won on two of his three rides, demonstrating once again that his hunger and instincts are sharper than ever, almost a quarter of a century on from his first Breeders' Cup win, also at Churchill Downs, in 1994.
