McKinzie (3-1) Favored in Breeders’ Cup Saturday

A deep and talented field will gather at (in)famous Santa Anita Park this weekend, along with perhaps 100,000 spectators, for the 36th running of the Breeders’ Cup. Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert is hoping for his fourth win in six years, and McKinzie (3-1) may be the horse to end his two-year drought.  For a record tenth time, Saturday’s mile and one-quarter race will be held at Santa Anita.  However, a dark cloud, which has transcended the world of horse racing, hangs heavy over this weekend’s event in Arcadia.
