Domedriver (IRE)

Breeders’ Cup Champion
Jockey: 
T. Thulliez
Trainer: 
P. Bary
Owner: 
Flaxman Holdings Ltd.
Breeder: 
Niarchos Family

Bred and owned by the Niarchos family, whose racing operation was created by Greek shipping magnate Stavros Niarchos, Domedriver pulled off one of the biggest upsets in the 2002 Breeders’ Cup, taking the Mile over heavily favored Rock of Gibraltar.

Given a perfect ride by jockey Thierry Thulliez, Domedriver found traffic trouble early in the race but was able to save ground before finding room between horses in the stretch and take the lead, holding off the favorite for a three-quarter length victory at odds of 26-to-1.

It was the crowning achievement in a 21-race career for Domedriver, who also won a Group 3 and Group 2 stakes in France before his lone North American start. He was also second in five Group stakes, including two Group 1 events.
