Breeders' Cup Results
Azeri makes her case for Horse of the Year while Volponi is a HUGE
upset winner in the Classic. Results and lots of photos for each
race available.


Breeders' Cup Wagering
A new record was set for total handle and an investigation is
underway into the unsual circumstances surrounding the 6
winning Pick 6 tickets, all purchased at the same OTB with an
unusual wagering pattern.

Breeders' Cup Supplements
This year 12 horses supplemented yielding 2 wins and 2 thirds,
while the rest failed to earn back their supplement fees. Check
out all the past supplements, what they paid, and what they earned
plus the details on the supplemental process.

Review: Finished Lines
A Collection of Memorable Writing on Thoroughbred Racing edited
by Frank Scatoni. Highly recommended for any racing fan.


Azeri for Horse of the Year
DEPALMA13 writes, "Six Grade 1 victories. With the exception of one bad
start, we would be looking at an undefeated champion. She beat the only
horse that ever beat her today, and did it in a most convincing manner.
She is the Horse of the Year, she beat all she faced save one, and got
revenge today. She's an all-time great and deserves the honor."  TELEVIN
adds, "In a year where no male really distinguished himself how can it be
anyone but Azeri?"

Eclipse Award for handicap males
EARLY11 writes, "I'd either give it to Left Bank or Orientate (can a
sprinter win in that category?) Orientate won 6 in a row all over the
country and Left Bank won two of the most impressive races of the year.
The division was so weak due to injury, retirement and inconsistent
performance, only these two stand out a bit above the rest, in my opinion."
