The Fri­day ses­sion at the Breed­ers’ Cup saw a record turn out of 45,673 vis­i­tors, the event’s high­est ever since adding a se­cond day start­ing in 2007. It was a 1 per cent in­crease over last year’s Fri­day crowd of 44,497 in Ken­tucky. There was a shock in the $2 mil­lion Distaff at the Breed­ers’ Cup as Be­holder edged out race favourite Song­bird by a nose. It was Song­bird’s first loss in 12 races. Rid­den by Gary Stevens, it was Be­holder’s fi­nal race of her ca­reer.
