Update 2643: As we all get ready for the 2007 Breeders' Cup, I ask you to remember the Breeders Cup Classic of 20 years ago: 1987 Breeders' Cup Classic. One horse, that day, stood above all others in an all star cast horserace ...
Update 2642: A couple of Breeders' Cup scratches, one from the Sprint, one from the Juvenile: Dixie Chatter, Attila's Storm Out of Breeders' Cup.
Update 2641: A windy morning this morning, which had the horses on their toes for sure. The fillies were especially skittish! I had seven to ride, and I managed to hang on thanks to the neck strap. Anyway, a fun morning. Our trainer, Eddie Kenneally, is now heading over to Monmouth to oversee Kelly's Landing's final preparations for the big race on saturday.
Given I was done so early this morning (10 am) I decided to head out to the Kentucky Horse Park. I wanted to see Cigar, Da Hoss and John Henry's memorial (or at least the cards and flowers that had been sent in his honor.) I get to pet Cigar, and see Da Hoss. It was also nice to see many cards honoring John, some of which came from FOBs. I noted cards from Mike C, Harriette G and Mary S to name a few. I also chatted with Robin, who works at the Hall of Champions barn. We had a long chat about the state of racing and related stuff. It was fun. Anyway, it all completed a great morning in Kentucky!
Update 2640: Perrenial leading trainer Tod Pletcher assesses his chances for this year's Breeders' Cup: Pletcher Reviews Breeders' Cup Starters.
