ARCADIA, Calif. (AP) -- Secret Circle won the $1.5 million Sprint by a neck, giving Hall of Famer trainer Bob Baffert and jockey Martin Garcia their second Breeders' Cup victories.

Garcia guided Secret Circle over six furlongs in 1:08.73 on Saturday at Santa Anita. The 4-year-old colt is co-owned by Mike Pegram, Karl Watson and Paul Weitman, who campaigned 2010 Preakness winner Lookin At Lucky with Baffert.

Secret Circle paid $7, $4.80 and $3.60 as the favorite.

Laugh Track returned $13.40 and $8.60.

Gentlemen's Bet was another 1 1/2 lengths back in third and paid $7 to show.

Earlier, Baffert and Garcia teamed to win the $2 million Juvenile with 10-1 shot New Year's Day.

Secret Compass, Baffert's entry in the $2 million Juvenile Fillies, broke down and had to be euthanized.
