9-1 Shot Fort Larned Wins BC Classic In Upset

ARCADIA, Calif. (AP) -- Fort Larned, a 9-1 long shot, led all the way to win the $5 million Classic by a half-length on Saturday, capping a weekend of upsets at the Breeders' Cup.

Brian Hernandez Jr., aboard the winner, celebrated his 27th birthday with the biggest victory of his career. Game On Dude, the 7-5 favorite who was beaten in the closing strides a year ago at Churchill Downs, was seventh in the field of 12.

Fort Larned ran 1 1/4 miles in 2:00.11 in the showcase race of the two-day world championships that was shown in prime time for the first time. Just four favorites won in the event's 15 races.

Mucho Macho Man was second and Flat Out, trained by Bill Mott, was third. Mott won last year's Classic with Drosselmeyer.
