Following heavy early morning storms over New York, the day brightened with spectacular individual efforts, starting with the 4-year-old Inside Information, ridden by Mike Smith, who dominated the Distaff with a 13 ½ length triumph, a Breeders’ Cup record for margin of victory. Smith also won the Juvenile aboard Unbridled’s Song. But this day belonged to the great Cigar, who completed an undefeated season of 10 straight wins with a rousing 2 ½ length victory under Jerry Bailey in the Breeders’ Cup Classic, and earned Cigar the Horse of the Year title. It was Bailey third consecutive Classic win.
