Pounced

Breeders’ Cup Champion
Jockey: 
L. Dettori
Trainer: 
J. Gosden
Owner: 
Lady Serena Rothschild
Breeder: 
Carwell Equities

English trainer John Gosden had no trouble finding his way to the winner’s circle after Lady Serena Rothschild’s 2-year-old chestnut colt Pounced rallied to score by three-quarters of a length under Frankie Dettori in the 2009 Juvenile Turf as the veteran horseman had visited the same enclosure twice the year before after Donativum won the Juvenile Turf and Raven’s Pass captured the Classic.

A son of Rahy, Pounced was bred by his owner in Kentucky but made all three of his previous starts in Europe, although the Juvenile Turf proved to be his final career start. After winning for the first time at Newbury in mid-August following a runner-up debut at Ascot, Pounced finished second in the Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere at Longchamp in early October in his final start before the trip to California.
