George Vancouver wins Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf

Arcadia, CA (Sports Network) - George Vancouver, coming in from Europe, accelerated down the stretch to win Saturday's $1 million Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf to begin the second day of the 29th World Championships at Santa Anita Park.

Trained by Aidan O'Brien, the 2-year-old colt shook loose from the competition at the top of the stretch in the mile event and went on to post a two-length victory over Noble Tune. Finishing third in the 14-horse field was Balance the Books with Dundonnell getting fourth.

Ridden by Ryan Moore, George Vancouver covered the distance in 1:33.78 on a firm turf course.

The victory is the second straight Juvenile Turf for both trainer and jockey. Last year, O'Brien and Moore combined with Wrote to take the race.

George Vancouver, bred in Kentucky, earned $540,000 with his second career win in seven starts. The colt has now banked $700,000.

George Vancouver returned $20.60, $11.00 and $7.20. Noble Tune paid $6.00 and $3.80, and Balance The Books paid $6.00 to show.
