    California Chrome Gets Third in Breeders' Cup Classic

    Bayern won the Breeders' Cup Classic event held in Santa Anita. Adrian Arambulo reports for the NBC4 News at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 1, 2014. (Published Saturday, Nov. 1, 2014)

    Bayern won the $5 million Breeders' Cup Classic by a nose, surviving a stewards' inquiry prompted by multiple horses bumping near the start of the race.

    The victory ended Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert's 0-for-12 skid in North America's richest race, and was his 11th career Cup win.

    Bayern ran 1 1/4 miles in 1:59.88 on Saturday at Santa Anita, leading a sweep of the first five places by 3-year-olds. He paid $14.20, $8 and $5.20.

    Toast of New York returned $18 and $10.80. Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner California Chrome paid $5.40 to show.

    Shared Belief, the 5-2 favorite, lost for the first time in eight career starts. He was fourth.

    Belmont Stakes winner Tonalist was fifth.
