2012 Woodford Stakes Results: Bridgetown beats Great Mills

Bridgetown rolls by Great Mills in the final furlong to win the Grade 3 Woodford Stakes at Keeneland.

Bridgetown passed Great Mills in the final 100 yards to win the Grade 3 Woodford Stakes at Keeneland. Great Mills broke well from the gate, ran quick splits through the opening half mile (21.67 and 44.53), received some pressure from the inside from Ginplay and pulled away to a length lead at the top of the stretch. From that point forward, Bridgetown cut into Great Mills lead with every stride, eventually taking the lead within the shadow of the wire. Chamberlain Bridge finished third to round out the trifecta.

6-Will's Wildcat was scratched from the Woodford prior to the race leaving a field of just six to go to post.

Bridgetown is a five-year-old son of champion sprinter Speightstown out of a Tabasco Cat mare (Ellesmere) trained by Todd Pletcher and ridden by Javier Castellano.
