Breeders' Cup Divisional Rankings 10/1/12

Countdown to­­ Breeders’ Cup: 31 Days!

Super Saturday is in the books, as is a terrific Sunday of racing as well! After a spectacular weekend of racing that featured a plethora of grade one races, we now know much more about a large portion of the horses pointing towards the Breeders’ Cup. While some divisions were shaken up, some, such as the Ladies’ Classic, became even more competitive. If only the Ladies’ Classic were to be run on Breeders’ Cup Saturday!

Below is my third edition of my divisional rankings for all Breeders’ Cup races (as of October 1).

*may opt for a different division (if a horse's connections are considering multiple races, I will only rank the horse in a single division)
