Roy H took apart his rivals with an imposing victory in the Grade One Twinspires Breeders’ Cup Sprint.

Nine of North America’s fastest dirt track specialists contested this six furlong event.

Promises Fulfilled broke well with Distinctive B.

Heading down the back stretch, Promises Fulfilled moved 1 ½ lengths clear of Distinctive B and Roy H.

That was the order turning into the home stretch, with Promises Fulfilled passed down the outside by Roy H, while Imperial Hint began to close.

But Roy H and Paco Lopez were four lengths clear and held an unassailable lead as the horse romped to back to back wins in the Breeders’ Cup Sprint.

Whitmore tried to chase down the winner but was still three lengths down at the wire, with Imperial Hint third and Promises Fulfilled fourth.
