Equibase: Breeders’ Cup Classic Fractional Time Adjusted Again

Flightline’s career was a blur to many racing fans

During the running of the Longines Breeders' Cup Classic (Gr. 1) on Nov. 5, 2022, at Keeneland, the timing eye for the three-quarter fraction was inadvertently tripped by an outrider as he was making his way to tend to pulled-up Epicenter.

The three-quarter time was originally posted as 1:07.98. After the discovery of the error, a hand-timed back-up fraction of 1:09.62 was produced on race day.

As per Equibase policy, the fractional time underwent comprehensive video review to verify its accuracy. After this review, it was determined that the three-quarter fractional time for the Classic was 1:09.27.

No other times were affected, including the final time of 2:00.05.
