- The Breeders’ Cup returns to Churchill Downs for the ninth time, after a spell in Southern California, because, “why run in temperatures in the low 80s and a clear sky when you could be in the 40s with a chance of rain?“
- There are fourteen races across two days this weekend. Here are the post positions, odds, and entries on all of them. The main event is at 5:44 PM local time, Saturday.
- Some believe the Classic draw is unkind to the favorites, particularly 5-2 Accelerate, in post 14.
Alternatively, if you’re looking for long shots and value plays this weekend, check out #4 Tight Ten (30-1) and#15 Dream Pauline (30-1).
- While not as star-studded as Churchill Downs’ May event, plenty of celebrities will make an appearance this weekend, including breeder and horse owner, Toby Keith. Two races will be livestreamed by NBC Sports on Facebook Watch.
