Breeders' Cup Preview: 'Future Stars' card set for Friday

Sports
Oct. 31 (UPI) -- When Breeders' Cup officials decided to group all five championship races for 2-year-olds on Friday's program, they created a "one-stop shop" for future stars in both North America and Europe -- and a massive handicapping challenge.
