Breeders’ Cup Presents Connections: ‘If You Work Real Hard, You Get Luckier’

Leonard Green is a man of numbers. The top-level accountant spends his days pouring over dollars and cents, but his 30-plus years in the Thoroughbred industry have taught him that it’s not all about the dollars; it takes sense. “Unlike other owners, I’m not in it to drink champagne; it’s a business,” Green said. “It’s […]

Breeders’ Cup Presents Connections: A Date With Team Enable

I have been so excited ever since I heard Enable might be coming for the Breeders’ Cup in my very own hometown, and even made a “friendly” wager with Ray Paulick right after she won the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe (I said she’d be here—glad I was right!). Now, try to imagine the level […]

Trainer Ignacio Correas IV didn’t start out pursuing the American Dream. Neither did Grade 1 Spinster winner and Breeders’ Cup Distaff contender Blue Prize.

Breeders’ Cup Presents Connections: Everyday ‘Passion’ Has Yoshida Ready For Classic

On first glance, what strikes me most are the relative differences between the two women. Physically, one is a head taller and a bit younger, while the other carries herself with a quieter, more unassuming presence.
