Breeders’ Cup Watch: Annapolis beats older horses in G1 Coolmore Turf Mile

What an impressive run from a sophomore colt!  Hear from 34-year-old Perry Bass, the third generation Kentucky horse owner-breeder who heads his family’s Bass Racing, after the 3-year-old Annapolis beats older horses in the Grade 1, $1 million Coolmore Turf Mile.  Bass discusses the type of “ground” that this horse requires to be at his best.

Annapolis finished the race in stakes-record time of 1:33.29 at Keeneland Racecourse to earn a fees-paid spot in the Breeders’ Cup Mile on turf.  The Breeders’ Cup is the first weekend in November at Keeneland in Lexington, Kentucky.
