Breeders' Cup Classic Final Time, Fractions Updated


Authentic | Coady

Prior to the running of the Nov. 7 GI Longines Breeders' Cup Classic at Keeneland, a photo eye at the start of the race was inadvertently tripped, which resulted in an error when attempting to operate the timing system manually causing inaccurate timing for all fractions and the final time of the race. A final time of 1:59.19 was initially provided by Equibase using the available video replay. After subsequent and more detailed review and timing of the race from multiple sources and camera angles, Keeneland and Equibase have determined the fractional times for the Classic as follows–:23.20, :46.84, 1:10.32, 1:34.6–and confirmed a final time of 1:59.60.  Classic winner Authentic is now credited with Keeneland's official track record for the 1 1/4-mile distance.
