=== Shanghai Bobby holds on to win Breeders' Cup Juvenile ===
 Arcadia, CA (Sports Network) - Undefeated Shanghai Bobby found something extra
 down  the  stretch to hold on  and capture Saturday's $2 million Breeders' Cup
 Juvenile  at Santa  Anita. The  2-year-old colt  covered the  1 1/16-miles  in
 Ridden  by Rosie Napravnik, Shanghai Bobby went off as the 6-5 favorite in the
 nine-horse field. Power Broker was the 2-1 second pick.
 Setting  the  pace was Title  Contender with Shanghai  Bobby to his outside in
 second. The top two battled up the backstretch and around the far turn.
 Shanghai  Bobby, trained by Todd Pletcher, took the lead on the final turn and
 into  the  stretch. However, the favorite  began to tire allowing the field to
 come to him.
 At  the top  of the stretch, Shanghai  Bobby looked like a beaten horse but he
 was  able to  dig down  and hold  off the  late running  He's Had  Enough. The
 favorite  posted  a head victory over  He's Had Enough with Capo Bastone third
 and Fortify finishing fourth.
 Perfect  in  five starts,  Shanghai Bobby  is the early  favorite for the 2013
 Kentucky Derby.
 The  win is the first for Napravnik in Breeders' Cup competition and she joins
 Julie  Krone  as the only  female jockeys  to win Championship races. Pletcher
 picks up his seventh Breeders' Cup win.
 Owned  by Starlight  Racing, Shanghai Bobby adds $1.08 million to his earnings
 which stand at $1,687 million.
 Shanghai  Bobby  returns $4.60, $3.40  and $2.60.  He's Had Enough paid $12.60
 and $7.40, and Capo Bastone paid $5.00 to show.
