Monday's Breeders' Cup news round-up

Check out the TwinSpires blog for what Shug McGaughey thought of Honor Code's (A.P. Indy) work, why Artemis Agrotera (Roman Ruler) is trying the Filly & Mare Sprint (G1) off a year-long layoff, future plans for Lea (First Samurai), Kiaran McLaughlin and Christophe Clement's Breeders' Cup contingents, and the latest on the international front.

Da Big Hoss seeks fourth straight in Sycamore

Da Big Hoss (Lemon Drop Kid) will attempt to remain undefeated for his present connections on Thursday when he faces 10 others in the $100,000 Sycamore (G3), a 1 1/2-mile grass stakes for older horses at Keeneland.

Claimed for $50,000 by Skychai Racing and trainer Mike Maker in June, the four-year-old enters the Sycamore on a three-race win streak that includes a two-length score in last month's Kentucky Turf Cup (G3).

Dear Readers,

There have been significant changes to the Handicapper's Edge and Bloodstock Journal newsletters. These changes are meant to produce more analytical content for our readers as well as handicappers who use the information in the newsletters.

Nearly everything has been migrated over to the Blog section on, including Dick Powell's Handicapping Insights and John Mucciolo's Notebooks. These features are still available, and for free like everything in the newsletters, but are just located in a different place now.

If you have any questions or comments on the new format, please feel free to contact us. Thank you for following the Edge and Journal.
