Breeders’ Cup Champion
Jockey: 
L. Dettori
Trainer: 
J. Gosden
Owner: 
H.R.H. Princess Haya of Jordan and Darley Stable
Breeder: 
Stratford Place Stud

Trainer John Gosden was reluctant to geld a colt who was purchased for $257,000, but the move paid off when Donativum followed up his victory in the $1.8 million Tattersalls Timeform Million at Newmarket with a late-running triumph in the second running of the $1 million Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf at Santa Anita Park with jockey Frankie Dettori in the saddle.

Owned by Princess Haya of Jordan and Darley Stable, the English-bred son of Cadeaux Gerereux rallied to win by a half-length over fellow European and favorite Westphalia. It gave Gosden his first Cup victory since Royal Heroine won in 1984 and came shortly before Gosden won again with Raven’s Pass in the Classic. Donativum covered the mile on firm turf in a robust 1:34.68 in the field of 12.
