It's a soggy, chilly November morning under the Spires at Churchill Downs, a day before the Breeders' Cup World Championships kick off and two before acclaimed filly Havre de Grace takes on Uncle Mo and the boys in the $5 million Classic under the lights at the legendary Louisville track.
Last year's Classic was a race for the ages, as Zenyatta-- piloted by Mike Smith-- brought her undefeated record to the Falls City, only to fall by a head to Blame and Garrett Gomez.
