Brothers Jose and Irad Ortiz have arrived at Santa Anita Park for the 2019 Breeders’ Cup World Championships, taking place November 1st and 2nd at the Great Race Place.

Jose mentioned he is “very excited” to ride Elate in her bid to be just the second filly or mare to win the Classic over the boys. “I think she will bring her A-game,” the rider said. “She can win this race.”

Regarding ultra-fast sprinter Shancelot, Jose said, “I’m looking forward to riding one of the fastest horses in the world. Shancelot has already run over the track and per conversations with (trainer Jorge) Navarro the horse is in his best condition.”

Irad’s Breeders’ Cup Mounts

Bricks and Mortar is bidding to be the North American Horse of the Year with a Breeders’ Cup victory. “He’s the best horse in the country,” Irad said. “The distance won’t be a problem.”

Vino Rosso is not the favorite for the Classic, but Irad said he, “can’t wait for this race.” And perhaps his most anticipated mount is aboard Dennis’ Moment, the unbeaten Dale Romans trainee running in the Juvenile. “He’s one of the most talented two-year-olds that I’ve ever ridden,” Irad said.
