Malibu Sunset sent to Baffert barn after romping in debut By The Rex Factor Sometimes when you win, you really lose isn’t just a saying that was popularized by Rosie Perez in the 1992 movie “White Men Can’t Jump”. It certainly pertains to horse racing, especially for those that work on the backside. Trainer Wayne Read More…

Breeders’ Cup Preview: Thirteen of the Best Annual Horse Races on the Planet

By The Rex Factor The most prestigious race in the world was going to be one of its most anticipated ever until about 58 hours to post time. Beholder (10) was scratched because she came up sick after a Keeneland jog a day or two after travelling in from southern California. Critics say that she Read More…

Breeders Cup: A look at the Classic

By The Rex Factor There will only be a maximum of nine horses on Breeders Cup headed to the post on Saturday in the world’s most prestigious race. This bodes well for the morning-line and sentimental favorite, American Pharoah (4). The Triple Crown winner undoubtedly benefits from the champion mare being sidelined by an illness. That Read More…

Breeders Cup: A look at the Turf

By The Rex Factor This shapes up to be the strangest race on the card based upon one “if”. The 3-year-old brilliant Golden Horn (1) has decimated the European competition so badly throughout the campaign that most of the connections decided it would be best to stay at home rather than to fight this monster. Read More…

Breeders Cup: A look at the Juvenile

By The Rex Factor Breeders Cup with only one European 2-year old in this race, and an outclassed one in Waterloo Bridge (14), it’s a matter of whether you believe in the prep races in California, Kentucky or New York having the most merit in deciding the likely 2-year old champion. Somehow (I’ve got a Read More…

Breeders Cup: A look at the Mile

By The Rex Factor A look at the Mile One of the more diverse fields of the day will hit the Keeneland lawn to kick off the late big guaranteed Pick-4. Defending Mile champion Karakontie (11) has ran just twice since winning the race last season, failing to fire in his first start and being Read More…

Breeders Cup: A look at the Sprint

By The Rex Factor The fastest of the fast dirt horses on Breeders Cup in the world take to the Keeneland oval; sometimes the speed can outlast them all as it did for 2014 winner Work All Week. If likely favorite Runhappy (5) breaks badly (dead last) like he did in his last two starts, he Read More…

Breeders Cup: A look at the Filly & Mare Sprint

By The Rex Factor Another 2014 champion returns to defend a title on Breeders Cup in this race, which has never been won in gate-to-wire fashion. Judy The Beauty (11) was a game second in this race two years ago for trainer Wesley Ward before scoring at Santa Anita last fall. She’s had just two starts Read More…

Breeders Cup: A look at the Turf Sprint

By The Rex Factor The Breeders’ Cup added this race in 2008 when it expanded its card, and it’s likely the most exciting minute of the entire weekend, although not quite as dramatically as when they run it down the Santa Anita hill. Bobby’s Kitten (2) became the first 3-year old to win this race Read More…

Breeders Cup: A look at the Juvenile Fillies

By The Rex Factor At least for one race, to set the tone for the Breeders’ Cup Saturday card, we get a west coast/east coast showdown. The top fillies from each coast are undefeated and should go off as the two top choices. Songbird (10) will break from the outside in the 10-horse field and Read More…
