White Abbario was the winner at the 2023 Breeders Cup Classic at Santa Anita Park on Saturday in Arcadia, California.
The four-year-old gray broke wide from the gate, but settled in the middle of the pack by the first time through the front stretch. The chalk proved his mettle at the 3⁄4 pole, going well wide down the last turn but still having plenty in the tank despite the elongated trip. The win by a length was the second-straight Grade I win for the son of Race Day and Catching Diamonds.
Abbario’s connections take home $3.6 million from the $6 million prize pool for the race.
