             === Breeders' Cup Marathon goes to Calidoscopio ===
 
 Arcadia,  CA (Sports  Network) - Calidoscopio, ridden by Aaron Gryder, rallied
 down the stretch to capture the $500,000 Breeders' Cup Marathon at Santa Anita
 Park. The 9-year-old covered the 1 3/4-miles in 2:57.25.
 
 Setting  the  early pace  in the  Marathon was  Jaycito with Commander running
 second and 3-year-old Atigun racing third in the 13-horse field.
 
 Jaycito, with Joe Talamo in the saddle, set the pace through the first half of
 the  race at  which point Atigun and  jockey Mike Smith took the lead. Atigun,
 third  in  this year's Belmont  Stakes, took the  field up the backstretch the
 second time and was joined by Juniper Pass.
 
 Atigun  and  Juniper Pass dueled  around the final  turn and into the stretch.
 Rallying  down  the middle of the  stretch was Calidoscopio. The 17-1 longshot
 cruised past the leaders and registered a four-length victory over Grassy.
 
 Atigun finished third with Juniper Pass settling for fourth.
 
 Worth Repeating was scratched in the morning after coming up lame to bring the
 field to 13.
 
 Trained  by Guillermo Frankel, Calidoscopio earned $270,000 with the win after
 shipping  in from South America. The 9-year-old has won 10 of 40 career starts
 for $853,154.
 
 Gryder recorded his first ever Breeders' Cup victory.
 
 Calidoscopio  paid $36.40, $16.00 and $9.60. Grassy returned $12.40 and $7.60,
 and Atigun paid $3.40 to show.
