Silic was at his best when racing at one mile and he flaunted his speed and stamina by charging from off the pace to score a narrow victory in the 1999 Breeders’ Cup Mile at Gulfstream Park over a star-studded international line-up. After launching his career in his native France where he won a Group 3 stakes race, Silic was sent to California where he won a pair of graded stakes races at his favorite distance in preparation for the Breeders’ Cup. Owned by Terrence Lanni, Bernard Schiappa and Kenneth Proslosky, Silic was nearly last in the field of 14 before sweeping the outside of his rivals to challenge for the lead. He held on to win the Mile by a head for trainer Julio Canani and jockey Corey Nakatani. Silic won another one-mile Grade 1 race before retiring to stud duty with eight wins in 15 starts and earnings of $1.4 million.
