Breeders’ Cup: Rushing Fall opens with Juvenile Fillies Turf win
By Art Wilson
DEL MAR — Rushing Fall came charging home in the middle of the track to win the $1 million Juvenile Fillies Turf as the Breeders’ Cup came to Del Mar for the first time Friday.
The winner returned $8, $4.60 and $3.40.
Ridden by Javier Castellano and trained by Chad Brown, Rushing Fall won for the third time in three starts while running the one mile on the grass in 1:36.09.
Juliet Capulet and Moon Dash, neither of whom was around at the finish, helped assure a realistic pace, setting splits of 23.04, 47.23 and 1:11.93 before caving in through the stretch.
Rushing Fall, a daughter of More Than Ready, won by three-quarters of a length over Best Performance. It was another length back to third-place finisher September. Significant Form was fourth.
