    The Biggest Handicapping Headlines From The 2017 Breeders Cup (BC) Are In “The Headlines” (11/5/17)

    Another day after the Breeders Cup to sit here and digest all the things that happened over the last two days.  The great performances from Gun Runner and Forever Unbridled which reinforced their emergence as the best of their generation; the mystifying performances of the Euros whose favorites barely lifted a hoof and whose long [...]
