The horse racing season reaches its pinnacle today.

It’s time for the Breeders’ Cup. A two-day event that features the best of the best in 14 races. Del Mar, in California, is the host.

Some of the entrants have dropped out, and it’s likely more will scratch. Be sure to work up options when handicapping. Note that there are non-Cup races that start the card each day.

These days are like a holiday to me. That’s why I’m listing the schedule again. Good luck to all.
