It must be a sign of greatness when a trainer can win this country’s richest race three years in a row and all anyone can talk about is about is his horse.
Phil Georgeff is in the Guinness Book of World Records for calling 96,131 horse races. The reason the number is so high is he called thoroughbred races in the daytime and harness races at night for many years.
My first two highlights from the Breeders’ Cup on Saturday were the Classic and Distaff. Both races delivered all that we hoped for as far as drama and suspense.
Thirteen Breeders’ Cup races will be run Friday and Saturday with combined purses of $28.5 million. Championships in almost every division will be settled on the track.
