  • Churchill Downs Breeders Cup Friday November 2, 2018 There was no ticketing Jaywalk (Cross Traffic) for her performance in this 1 1/16-mile race on the dirt. Jaywalk got away comfortably and never had any issues holding off the rest of the field. The two-year-old led throughout and did not give up ground to second-place finisher Restless Rider or Vibrance, who finished third. Jaywalk finished the race in 1:43.62, and trainer John Servis was surprised to see her go to the front right at the start.

  • Churchill Downs Breeders Cup Friday November 2, 2018 Line of Duty won a thriller in the Juvenile Turf, charging down the stretch and taking the lead in the final jumps to earn the win in 1:40.06. Longshot Somelikeithotbrown had the lead throughout the majority of the race, but Line of Duty and Uncle Benny made up ground throughout the final quarter-mile and passed the leader in deep stretch. Line of Duty and Uncle Benny bumped as they vied for the wire, and an inquiry resulted after the race. Line of Duty veered in while Uncle Benny leaned outside as the two horse made contact with each other. While the contact looked fairly significant, neither horse appeared to be bothered by it and Line of Duty was not taken down. Jockey William Buick sweated out the inquiry and was relieved that the win was not erased by the stewards' decision.
