Text size Aa Aa

By Rory Carroll DEL MAR, California (Reuters) – World Approval broke free from the pack down the stretch to win the $2 million Breeders’ Cup Mile at Del Mar Thoroughbred Club racetrack on Saturday. After sitting back for the majority of the race, jockey John Velazquez shifted the grey 5-2 favourite into gear after the final turn and ultimately won by a comfortable 1 1/4 lengths. The win was the fourth career Breeders’ Cup victory for trainer Mark Casse, who also conditioned 2015 Mile winner Tepin. Promising three-year-old colt Lancaster Bomber came in second while Blackjackcat finished third on the hard, fast turf on a sunny day at the oceanside racetrack.
