I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Not real sure if they're showing the races or just handicapping but you can try this.

Wow, Mendelssohn's race looked a lot better than an 86.

Ditto on FU I would've given it a low triple fig. But I guess that's why they're prelim?

True, the Distaff looked better too. But maybe they will be adjusted a little higher perhaps.

Looks like Arrogate might go favored, then Gun Runner and West Coast the third choice!?!?!

$13 is better than I expected although I had to invest $5 to get this far! :)

After Mendolssohn's impressive win yesterday, and Declarationofpeace's come from behind win just now in the undercard Juvenile Turf Sprint, maybe I should take another look at Aiden O'Brien's entrants in the coming BC races. Aiden has his horses ready to run, and they are showing their quality.
Could Churchill spring a huge surprise in the Classic.

All samples collected from 2017 Breeders' Cup horses for testing have been cleared by the Kenneth L. Maddy Equine Analytical Chemistry Laboratory at the University of California, Davis.

All horses competing in Breeders' Cup races Nov. 3-4 at Del Mar underwent pre-race testing for total carbon dioxide (TCO2) levels in blood. The Maddy Laboratory then conducted post-race testing of both blood and urine samples for prohibited drugs, including cobalt, collected from the first four finishers in all Breeders' Cup races and any additional random horses selected by the stewards consistent with California Horse Racing Board protocol.
