Also to the people saying we should move the BC two things:

1) That’s eight months away and we have more then enough time to fix the tracks issues that are getting caused by the rain

2) LAs climate in the fall and it’s climate in the spring are opposite sides of the coin. Let me put it this way what is the one thing we always hear about in the fall: the answer is wildfires. Guess what we also never hear about during the spring or at least not to the same extent: again wildfires. Spring is usually more wet anyway but it’s REALLY wet this year. Which is where the problems are coming from for the most part. Less wet, less track problems. Even without changing the surface

Accelerate wins 2018 Breeders’ Cup Classic

Even from the 14th post position there was no stopping Accelerate in the 10 furlong, Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Classic. The five-year-old son of Lookin’ At Lucky earns trainer John Sadler his first Breeders’ Cup Classic win. Joel Rosario was on the mount for the winning ride. Favored Accelerate wins his fourth Grade 1 in a 2018 campaign that included victories at the Pacific Classic, Awesome Again, the Gold Cup, and the Santa Anita Handicap.

Gunnevera was second, Thunder Snow third, Yoshida fourth. Fractions:
:223, :462, 1:103, 1:354, 2:024

The next two months are going to be long as freaking hell

Enable goes straight down the middle of the stretch

And it doesn’t matter one bit. Arc winner and now a BC winner becoming the first to do it in a singular season. I knew the short season would be to her advantage.

Holy crap Frankie said her wheels were spinning at one point. O_o She still won despite not liking the ground.

Good job on City of Light.

That was a horrible break by Catalina Cruiswr though. Drifted all the way to the 14th/15th post coming out of the gate.

@wwheeljack Yeah I’ve had a hard time remembering this year myself. Thus the alarms

Alarms set for tomorrow’s races so I remember to get the NBC Sports app out in time. Hopefully I won’t be anywhere awkward close to post time…

Dear Lord this feels weird

Most people I know are headed for the BC while I’m about to board a flight to Newark instead for the NYC Marathon.

Im having such a disconnect with this years edition. Part of my brain keeps forgetting what this weekend is in terms of horse racing.
