Breeders' Cup Divisional Rankings 10/15/12

By Mary Cage

Countdown to­­ Breeders’ Cup: 17 Days!

There are only a few changes to this week’s divisional rankings, as the amount of prep races for the Breeders’ Cup is abridging as the event grows closer. However, the racing at Keeneland and Woodbine this past weekend did have an effect on a handful of divisions.

Below is my fifth edition of my divisional rankings for all Breeders’ Cup races (as of October 15).
