The Europeans arrived to claim their prize. Running at 1 1/2 on the sod in the BC Turf is their signature event. The questions was, could the Americans counter and somehow best the likes of Magical, Tarnawa, or Mogul? Some thought United could close the deal after finishing second last year to Bricks and Mortar. 

In the end, Channel Marker offered the greatest effort, but he could not hold together the pace scenario. European runners like to watch and wait, biding their time. That is exactly what fill-in rider, Colin Keane, did aboard Dermot Weld's Tarnawa. An accomplished filly with major class.

She showed the boys what-was-what with an impressive turn of foot into the 4-path. Incidentally, the Irish-based Keane, who has had a banner 2020, proved that jockeys can be versatile under difficult circumstances. For Weld, this was his first BC win, and for His Highness, Aga Khan, proved why he his a global Thoroughbred owner of international renown.

Paying $11.40 to win, Tarnawa shined, but so did Magical, Aidan O'Brien venerable star. He earned second, while Channel Maker, with Manny Franco aboard fell to 3rd. Once again, the turf races on Day 2 of the Breeders' Cup were dominated by Europeans. That included the Turf Sprint, which they won for the first time. It was definitely a banner day for them.
