LEXINGTON, KY – Improbable, a commanding 4 1/2-length winner of Saturday’s Awesome Again Stakes (G1) at Santa Anita Park, leaped from fourth to first place in Week #11 of the Longines Breeders’ Cup Classic Rankings, overtaking stablemate Maximum Security for the top spot.
The 2020 Longines Breeders’ Cup Classic Rankings is a weekly poll of the top 10 horses in contention for the $6 million Longines Breeders’ Cup Classic (G1). The 1 1/4-mile Classic, scheduled to be run on November 7 at Keeneland Race Course in Lexington, KY, is the climactic race of the Breeders’ Cup World Championships.
Improbable (308 votes), owned by WinStar Farm, CHC Inc. and SF Racing, and Maximum Security (274 votes), the Awesome Again runner-up, owned by Gary and Mary West, Michael Tabor, Mrs. John Magnier and Derrick Smith, are both trained by Hall of Famer Bob Baffert. The Awesome Again was a Breeders’ Cup Challenge automatic qualifying race for the Longines Breeders’ Cup Classic. Improbable had already earned a Classic berth when he won the Whitney (G1) at Saratoga on August 1.
GMB Racing’s Tom’s d’Etat (268 votes), who captured the “Win and You’re In” Stephen Foster Stakes (G2), drops from second to third place, and is now followed in fourth by Sackatoga Stable’s Tiz the Law (223 votes), winner of both the Belmont (G1) and Travers Stakes (G1).
The next six places in the Longines Breeders’ Cup Classic Rankings remain unchanged.
