Smiles are contagious.
The Breeders’ Cup ran on Friday and Saturday of last week, November 4 and 5, at Santa Anita Park in California. The world’s top horses from three continents gathered to duel over dirt and turf in a variety of age and gender contests which crowned champions over thirteen Grade I races offering a minimum purse of $1 million, all the way up to the $6 million Classic.
So when you win one, earning a spot in history for yourself, your horse and all of its connections, you’re pretty happy about it. Here are the twelve of the thirteen winning jockeys and their brilliant reactions, courtesy of the Breeders’ Cup gallery.
Go racing. Go riding.
