2013 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Results: New Year's Day closes hard on the rail for the upset

Kelvin Kuo-US PRESSWIRE

Hey, look! A closer at Santa Anita on the main track!

New Year's Day made a very late move a long the rail to pass a tiring Havana to win the Breeders' Cup Juvenile at Santa Anita Park. Havana was in the mix of a very strong early pace that say opening splits of 22.66 and 45.38. The favorite took the lead at the top of the stretch but he grew increasingly leg-weary the closer he got to the wire and had to settle for second. Strong Mandate finished third while Bond Holder rounded out the superfecta.

Of course, as in year's past, once a colt wins the Juvenile the invariable Kentucky Derby prognostications begin. New Year's Day was impressive in rallying off the pace through what had to be a tough trip given all the kickback at Santa Anita this weekend. On the otherhand, over the last 30 years, only one horse has won the Juvenile and come back to win the Derby when Street Sense pulled the double. Time will tell if New Year's Day can accomplish that same feat but if history is any indication, it's going to be a tough feat to accomplish.

New Year's Day is a two-year-old colt by Street Cry (IRE) out of a Dixie Union mare (Justwhistledixie), trained by Bob Baffert and ridden by Martin Garcia.
