Kotashaan (FR)

Kotashaan's Breeder's Cup Turf victory was the crowning achievement in a stellar year on the grass. Kotashaan unleashed an explosive move on the final turn, and prevailed after a grueling stretch drive to win by a neck. The Turf victory propelled him to Horse of the Year honors. Kotashaan was a heavy favorite based on four Grade 1 stakes victories earlier in 1993, including a record setting win in the San Juan Capistrano Handicap. It was a triumph for local grass specialists. American based turf runners Bien Bien and Luazor were second and third, giving the Americans a 1-2-3 finish over top European competitors Hatoof, and Opera House.

It was the first Breeders' Cup victory for jockey Kent Desormeaux. It was the second Breeders' Cup win for Richard Mandella on his home track. He won the Juvenile Fillies with Phone Chatter earlier in the day.
