September 28 was billed as ‘Super Saturday', and it certainly lived up to its hype, with Belmont Park and Santa Anita playing host to 10 Grade 1 races.
At Belmont Park, Ron the Greek surprised many with a 21-1 upset in the Jockey Club Gold Cup, while Princess of Sylmar showed little respect for her elders when she scored a two-length victory over Royal Delta in the Beldame Stakes.
At Santa Anita, Hall of Famer Gary Stevens put on a riding clinic, piloting Beholder to a win in the Zenyatta Stakes and Mucho Macho Man to victory in the Awesome Again. Stevens topped off his weekend with a victory aboard Indy Point in the John Henry Turf Championship.
