Analysis by Michael Patricks
The 34th Breeders’ Cup Classic is here at last and that means 13 Grade 1 races will be contested between Friday and Saturday, with a staggering nine consecutive Grade 1’s to be offered on the Saturday Breeders’ Cup program. Lush, full fields are offered over the two days, offering horseplayers the true definition of a “gambler’s buffet” in their ever after, value seeking quest to sleigh appetizing win mutuels–victors to fatten their collective wallets from their big game hunting, assuaging their mouth-watering palates from these Grade 1 affairs that will undoubtedly provide their second piati as they collectively regale their equine heroes as raconteurs with their horse playing brethren sitting table side at nights end. Let’s raise a goblet to Breeders’ Cup 34!
