Ridden by Joe Bravo and trained by Chad Brown, the 5-year-old horse covered the 1 3/8 miles on a firm turf course in 2:11 4/5 and returned $7, $3.40 and $2.80.

Big Blue Kitten earned $300,000 for winning the Grade I race, boosting his career earnings to $698,530. He also earned an automatic berth to the $3 million Breeders' Cup Turf race that will be run Nov. 3 at Santa Anita.

Teaks North paid $6.80 and $4.60, while Hangover Kid was a length back in third and returned $8.40. Little Mike, last year's Breeders' Cup Turf winner, was sent off as the 8-5 betting favorite and held the lead for most of the race before fading to fourth.

Earlier on the card, Raging Daoust overtook Big Sur in the closing strides to win by a nose in the $150,000 Salvator Mile.

Trained by Charles Carlesimo Jr. and ridden by Victor Santiago, the 4-year-old gelding covered the mile on a fast track in 1:36 4/5 to win the Grade III race and returned $69, $22.80 and $6.80. Raging Daoust earned $90,000 for the victory - his first in a graded stakes race - and boosted his career earnings to $273,203.

Big Sur, who led the entire race until the closing strides, paid $15.20 and $5.80, while Csaba was three lengths back in third and returned $2.80.
