LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Donnie Von Hemel has won almost 1,900 races in his 27-year training career, but none bigger than Saturday afternoon when Caleb's Posse stormed down the center of the Churchill Downs stretch to win the $1 million Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile by four lengths.

Shackleford, the Preakness winner, finished second by 1 3/4 lengths over longshot Tres Borrachos. Trappe Shot finished fourth and was followed in the order of finish by Tapizar, Jersey Town, Wilburn, the 5-2 favorite, The Factor, and Irrefutable.
