Anna Buffini and Mike Smith at the Breeders' Cup


World-class equestrian rider Anna Buffini and Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith reconnect at the 40th Breeders' Cup during the Future Stars Friday races on Nov. 3 at Santa Anita Park. The pair first met when participating in a joint workout earlier this fall and shared preparation tips.

Smith has a gained reputation throughout his career as one of the most dedicated workout enthusiasts in the sport as he has remained at the top of his game for more than 40 years in the saddle. Buffini had her work cut out for her as she attempted to match strides with the 58-year-old living legend during a memorable visit to the fitness center.

Smith is the all-time winningest rider in the history of the Breeders’ Cup World Championships with 27 victories.
