Juddmonte’s homebred Idiomatic ($5.60) outdueled Randomized in a stretch-long battle to prevail by a half-length and win the 40th running of the $2 million Longines Breeders’ Cup Distaff (G1) for fillies and mares Saturday afternoon at Santa Anita.
Trained by Brad Cox and ridden by Florent Geroux, the winner completed the 1 1/8 miles over a fast track in 1:50.57. It is the 10th Breeders’ Cup victory for Cox and the eighth for Geroux with the two combining to win the Distaff in 2018 and 2020 with Monomoy Girl.
Randomized set the pace, but was hounded by Idiomatic who raced just off her flank. On the far turn, Geroux sent Idiomatic after the Randomized and the two fillies hit the top of the stretch together.
The two exchanged the lead through the lane as Clairiere attempted to slip between the two and Desert Dawn closed in four-wide. But the top two kept going to claim the win and place spots as Le Da Vida (CHI) rallied to get third by a nose over Clairiere with Desert Dawn fifth.
Idiomatic is a 4-year-old Kentucky-bred daughter of 2007 Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1) winner Curlin out of the First Defence mare Lockdown. The victory was worth $1,040,000 and increased Idiomatic’s earnings to $2,456,840 with a record of 12-9-1-2 and three consecutive Grade 1 victories.
