Aloha West wins tight Qatar Racing Breeders' Cup Sprint

Aloha West was another to get the best of a photo as he came from the clouds to give Jose Ortiz a second Breeders’ Cup winner of the weekend in the Sprint.

Dr Schivel appeared to have them all beaten with 100 yards to run but Aloha West, representing the same Eclipse Thoroughbred Partners who won the Queen Mary with Quick Suzy, got up in the final strides for Wayne Catalano.

Owner Aaron Wellman said: “Wayne has done such a fantastic job. He told me two months ago when he was second in the Phoenix that he would win the Breeders’ Cup Sprint.

“Wayne rode 3,000 winners as a jockey and has trained 2,000 and is for me a worthy Hall Of Famer.

“There’s no telling how good this horse could be.”
