Scully previews Breeders' Cup storylines

Breeders' Cup pre-entries will be released Wednesday and James Scully takes a look at some key storylines surrounding this year's event.

In the first in a series of profiles looking at the main candidates in the upcoming TwinSpires.com Breeders' Cup Sprint (G1), Lord Nelson is poised to run a big one for owner Spendthrift Farm and trainer Bob Baffert.

John Mucciolo has a theory on Breeders' Cup Juvenile (G1) contender Theory.

The date for Beemie Awards on Twitter is set for December 9.

California Chrome aiming for history in Classic

Former Horse of the Year and dual classic winner California Chrome is looking to rewrite the history books in this year's Breeders' Cup Classic (G1). Kellie Reilly writes about the drought that has affected past winners of the Dubai World Cup (G1) and Pacific Classic (G1) in the country's richest race.

Vance Hanson gives a brief overview of the Breeders' Cup's main two-year-old races and notes the Juvenile (G1) is highly contentious while the Juvenile Fillies (G1) is a head scratcher.

In other Breeders' Cup news, Kellie Reilly discussed Tepin and Vyjack possibly squaring off in the Mile (G1) and the rarity of siblings running against each other in the Breeders' Cup.

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 TwinSpires.com Blog section on TwinSpires.com, 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.
