Lit de Justice

History was made in the 1996 Breeders’ Cup Sprint when Jenine Sahadi became the first female trainer to capture a Breeders’ Cup race. She conditioned the versatile performer Lit de Justice who started his career in France and made his first nine starts on turf courses. In 1995, he won his first outing on dirt and captured a Grade 3 at Santa Anita two races later. Lit de Justice changed surfaces and distances after that and put in a late rally to run third in the 1995 Breeders’ Cup Sprint behind Desert Stormer.


Sahadi elected to restrict him to one turn races in 1996 and her late running sprinter would put in exciting final furlong performances. That running style can often cause traffic problems, but Corey Nakatani kept him clear of trouble in a bulky 13-horse field in the Sprint. Rallying from last, they put in a scintillating performance to drive to a 1 1/2 length tally.
