This Is Horse Country [Breeders Cup]


Tonight is the big night, the Breeder's Cup begins. I have to confess that I am no more knowlegable about this event than I was on Monday when I asked my husband "Babe, just what is the Breeder's Cup?". He looked at me and said, "It's horse racing. Your're in horse country." Well, duh. I knew that. Still, I tried to do a little research and other than hearing about the amazing record that Zenyatta hopes to maintain (and from Regis Philben on "Regis and Kelly", no less) I still don't have much to add that hasn't already been said by my fellow writers. So saying, I think you should check out the following write-ups that have been posted here at
