ARCADIA, CA – Robert Donaldson’s Spun to Run broke on top and never looked back, taking the field of 10 coast to coast before winning Saturday’s $1 million Big Ass Fans Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile (G1) at Santa Anita Park.
Bursting from post 3 at 9/1 odds under Irad Ortiz, Jr., Spun to Run immediately asserted himself on the front end heading into the clubhouse turn. While the Korean invader Blue Chipper gave closest chase, Spun to Run posted opening fractions of :23.05 and :46.51.
Heading into the far turn, Spun to Run still held command and began to pull away. Straightening for home with a growing advantage, the Juan Guerrero trainee crossed 2 3/4 lengths the best in a final time of 1:36.58 for the mile-long event over the fast main track.
