ELMONT, N.Y., Oct. 29 (UPI) -- Silver Train derailed the favorite and ducked a foul to win Saturday's Breeders' Cup Sprint at Belmont Park.

The 3-year-old colt, owned by Buckram Oak Farm, trained by Richard Dutrow and ridden by Edgar Prado, made his move after the turn, finishing the 6 furlongs in 1:08.86.

The race had been expected to be the coronation of Lost in the Fog, who entered it undefeated in 10 starts.

Jockey Garrett Gomez, aboard Taste of Paradise, claimed Silver Train interfered with Taste of Paradise down the stretch, but stewards rejected the claim.

It was Silver Train's second straight victory and just the fourth in his career, pushing his winnings to $720,000.

Silver Train paid $25.80, $10.40 and $8.10; Taste Of Paradise, $10.60 and $7.20; and Lion Tamer $7.60 for show.
