11/7/22 - Seattle Slew Descendants Win Half of Breeders' Cup Events

Led by certain-to-be Horse of the Year FLIGHTLINE (Tapit), seven different stellar equine athletes descending from Seattle Slew captured seven of the 14 2022 Breeders' Cup World Championships races. The Slew Crew congratulates the winners and all their connections on two great days of racing. We wish you continued successes.

Flightline, a great-great-grandson of Seattle Slew, ended the championship races on Saturday, Nov. 5 with an exclamation point, winning the $6 million Breeders' Cup Classic (G1) by 8 1/4 lengths. He was followed across the line by Olympiad and Taiba, also Seattle Slew descendants, in second and third.

Champion MALATHAAT (Curlin), who is out the A.P. Indy (Seattle Slew) mare Dreaming of Julie, captured the $2 million Breeders' Cup Distaff (G1) by a nose in a three-way photo in an amazing closing finish. Clairiere, also closing from the back, was third by a nose at the line.

ELITE POWER (Curlin) proved best of 11 sprinters in the $2 million Breeders' Cup Sprint (G1). Out of the Vindication (Seattle Slew) mare Broadway's Alibi, Elite Power was 1 1/4 lengths in front of his closest competitor. Jackie's Warrior, who boasts Seattle Slew in his pedigree twice, finished third.

The $1 million Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile went to favorite CODY'S WISH (Curlin) by a head for an emotional winner's circle celebration with his namesake Cody Dormer. Produced from Dance Card (Tapit), Cody's Wish won over fellow Seattle Slew descendant Cyberknife.

On the turf Saturday, CARAVEL (Mizzen Mast) bested 13 others to win the $1 million Breeders' Cup Turf Sprint (G1). The speedy gray/roan mare is out of the Congrats (A.P. Indy) mare ZeeZee ZoomZoom and led nearly the entire 5 1/2 furling event, crossing the line a half-length in front.

On Friday, Nov. 4, two-year-olds took center stage.

WONDER WHEEL (Into Mischief) stole the spotlight in the $2 million Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies when she closed from near the back of the pack to win by three lengths. The dark bay/brown filly is out of Wonder Gal, who is by Tiz Wonderful (Tiznow) and was produced from Passe (Dixie Union), giving both Wonder Gal and Wonder Wheel double doses of Seattle Slew in their pedigrees.

In the $2 million Breeders' Cup Juvenile (G1), FORTE (Violence) proved best by 1 1/2 lengths. The soon to be champion descends from Seattle Slew through his third dam, Kew Garden, a daughter of the unmatched Thoroughbred.
