Trinniberg sprang an upset in the $1.5 million Sprint at 13-1 odds, extending the streak of long-shot winners on the second day of the Breeders' Cup at Santa Anita.

Ridden by Willie Martinez, Trinniberg ran 6 furlongs in 1 minute, 7.98 second and paid $29.40 for the win by three-quarters of a length on Saturday.

The Lumber Guy was second and Smiling Tiger was another 2-1/4 lengths back in third in the field of 14. Defending champion Amazombie, the 7-2 favorite, was eighth.

Trinniberg finished 17th in the Kentucky Derby for trainer Shivananda Parbhoo, whose daughter, Sherry, owns the 3-year-old colt.

Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert, a three-time winner of the race, went 0 for 3 with his entries of Fast Bullet (sixth), Coil (seventh), Capital Account (12th).
