Midshipman wins Breeders' Cup Juvenile

ARCADIA, Calif. (AP) - Midshipman has stamped himself as the
early favorite for next year's Kentucky Derby with a victory in the
$2 million Breeders' Cup Juvenile.
Jockey Garrett Gomez earned his second win Saturday - and third
of the two-day event - guiding Midshipman to a 1¼-length victory
over Square Eddie on Saturday. They were the co-favorites at 7-2,
although about $1,000 more was bet on Square Eddie.
Midshipman paid $9.20, $4.40 and $3.20. Square Eddie returned $5
and $3.80, while Street Hero was another half-length back in third
and paid $4.40.
Trained by Bob Baffert, Midshipman ran 1 1-16 miles in 1:40.94,
a stakes record on the new synthetic surface at Santa Anita.
It was Baffert's sixth Breeders' Cup win and his second in the
Juvenile.
