Breeders' Cup Divisional Rankings 10/24/12

By Mary Cage

Countdown to­­ Breeders’ Cup: Days!

Can you believe it? Just over a week remains until the Breeders’ Cup World Championships. I, for one, am excited beyond belief! This is likely my final Breeders’ Cup Divisional Rankings post of 2012, though that does not mean my selections are finalized in this post. I look forward to sharing with you all my experience at the Breeders’ Cup next week!

Below is my sixth edition (and likely last) of my divisional rankings for all 2012 Breeders’ Cup races (as of October 24). Instead of a normal Monday posting, this post was delayed due to the pre-entries for the Breeders’ Cup being released today.
