The Breeders' Cup returned to Santa Anita for the third consecutive year, and a record two-day crowd of 98,319 at the track enjoyed the 13 races that made up the 31st World Championships.

Goldencents awed racing fans on Friday by winning the Dirt Mile for the second straight year, becoming the first Breeders' Cup champion to achieve that distinction. Untapable brought Friday to a rousing end with a victory in the Longines Distaff, ensuring herself an Eclipse Award as 3-year-old filly.

Saturday opened with Take Charge Brandi upsetting the 14 Hands Winery Juvenile Filles at 62-1, the longest shot in the 14 horse field. Her win extended trainer D. Wayne Lukas' record number of Breeders' Cup victories to 20. Main Sequence won his fourth straight Grade 1 in 2014 when he crossed the wire in the Longines Turf half a length ahead of Flintshire. Karakontie became the sixth winner in the Mile for the Niarchos family, and Bayern gave trainer Bob Baffert his first win in the Classic by finishing a nose ahead Toast of New York and surviving a stewards' inquiry into the start.

After traveling to Keeneland for 2015, the Breeders' Cup will return to Santa Anita for the ninth time in 2016, and then will be run for the first time at Del Mar in 2017.
