Belmont Park

October 29 & 29, 2005

The 22nd Breeders’ Cup was held at Belmont Park for the fourth time. Jockey Garrett Gomez won his first two career Breeders’ Cup races, booting home Stevie Wonderboy in the Juvenile and Artie Schiller in the Mile. Intercontinental defeated defending champion Ouija Board in the Filly & Mare Turf. Shirocco became the first German horse to win a Breeders’ Cup race, winning the Turf. The Classic was all Saint Liam. The 5-year-old, ridden by Jerry Bailey, took control of the race in the stretch and cruised to victory by a length. Saint Liam was later named Horse of the Year. It was Bailey’s 15th and final Breeders’ Cup win, retiring the following year as the all-time leader in Breeders’ Cup victories.
