Like most handicappers with a pulse, I look forward to the two-day Breeders’ Cup World Championships for one reason — the opportunity to bet on horses whose odds in no way reflect their actual chances of winning.

Breeders’ Cup Countdown Presented By DRF Bets: A View From Europe, Durkin’s Memories

As I approached Giles Anderson’s booth at Equestricon this week, he pulled up the Racing Post on his mobile device, sliding it in front of me to display a photo on the front page of the website.

Breeders’ Cup Countdown Presented By DRF Bets: Don’t I Know You From The Stallion Register?

If you skimmed the pre-entries for the Breeders’ Cup Classic and thought, ‘Toast of New York? I thought he retired years ago,’ don’t worry. You’re not losing your mind. (Or if you are, this is not your sign.) Indeed, the winner of the 2014 Grade 2 UAE Derby did retire to stud in 2015, but […]

Breeders’ Cup Presents Connections: ‘Horses As Family’ Help Moquett Fight His Battles

About a decade ago, after Seek Gold catapulted trainer Ron Moquett into the national consciousness, he scrawled down a list of races he wanted to win. Some, like the Travers, were obvious. Others (the Vanderbilt, the Count Fleet, the deFrancis) made his list because of their history. The list hangs on a wall in his […]

Breeders’ Cup Presents Connections: Powell Looks For ‘The Essence Of Every Horse’

Trainer Leonard Powell isn’t afraid to be a bit different from his colleagues on the Southern California circuit.

Jockey Carol Cedeno made headlines last week when she set a Delaware Park record with seven winners on a ten-race card. For those who follow the Mid-Atlantic circuit closely, the only surprise is that it didn’t happen sooner.
