ARCADIA, California (Reuters) - Fort Larned stole the limelight from overwhelming favorite Game on Dude with a storming finish to win the $5 million Breeders' Cup Classic at Santa Anita Park on Saturday.

Brian Hernandez piloted the four-year-old colt past the celebrated field in a dramatic stretch run to win America's richest race. Mucho Macho Man came in second.
