In HRT we bring the latest information about horse racing. Here is a video that summarizes the most important events that will happen during the weekend. Here are our HRT HIGHLIGHTS #25.
There were many amazing performances this week. However, the highlight goes to the six-year-old mare Ce Ce, trained by Michael McCarthy and ridden by Victor Espinoza.
The talented 2021 Eclipse award winner as top female sprinter went to the gate as the 2 to 5 favorite and demolished the field by six and a half lengths.

HRT HIGHLIGHTS #25 Breeder Cup Classic future book
This week we look at the Breeders Cup turf which is a race that has been dominated by European invaders who have taken six of the last 7 runnings.
This year is still very much up in the air as four horses have already qualified but none have committed to making the trip to Keeneland.
Currently, Village King from Argentina at 60/1, the State of Rest from Ireland at 20/1, Nautilus from Brazil at 50/1, and Japan’s Titleholder is 40/1 and is expected to pursue the L’Arc de Triomphe rather than make the trip to the Breeders Cup.
Last year’s champion Yibir currently at 8/1
