Canadian International Results
3-year-old Irish invader Ballingarry wins over Falcon Flight over
a very slow yielding turf. Results, chart, and lots of photos.


E.P. Taylor Stakes Results
European invaders took the top two spots here as well with Fraulein
winning by a length over Alasha in an incredibly slow time. Results,
chart, and lots of photos.

Review:  Exterminator
by Eva Jolene Boyd.  Known affectionately as "Old Bones," Exterminator
is one of the great "iron horses" of all time. He carried weights as
high as 140 pounds, over distances of up to 2 1/4 miles.  Excellent
biography of a grand old champion.

Breeders' Cup Contenders
The current top contenders in each division with info for
each and lots of photos. Updated daily with more horses and

Breeders' Cup Tickets Update
The Trackside Village has been cancelled and people who had tickets
there will be relocated to the Trackside.  The good news is 500 of
the Clubhouse Turn tickets have been released for sale to the public.
These include a hospitality tent with a meal for $185.  Get all the
details here.  Only 700 total tickets left for sale from the track

Breeders' Cup Hotels
Hopefully by now you have your tickets, but what about a place
to stay?  Here is a list of the closest hotels to Arlington
that still have vacancies, some for rates as low at $55 per night.


Yavana's Pace injured, possibly retired
TEXSQUARED writes, "He ran a really good race at Woodbine finishing
third, which may have been his last start.  Apparently he was already
injured going into the Canadian International."  EARLY11 adds, "It is
absolutely the most disgusting thing I've read in a long time. Here
is my version in layman's terms:  'I'm not surprised he was injured.
Heck, he had an infected foot a couple of weeks ago and the pus had
worked its way up to the knee, which was swollen. So, when we heard
he was lame, well of course I knew he had torn the ligament. He
probably was running injured in his last two races. Isn't that

Siphonic dies of heart attack after race
ACESPORT1 writes, "Siphonic has just died while waiting to be drug
tested after his run today." RAESFAN writes, "I was devastated! I so
looked forward to he and Buddha returning to the track, now one
retires and the other dies. I felt a blow to the pit of my stomach.
I get so attached to these animals. I pray we have seen all the bad
news for 2002, although it's not likely. I hope BC day is free from
incident. It is my favorite day (except maybe Derby day) of the year."
