Of the $15,715,478 gambled on the races at Del Mar on Saturday through transparently reportable sources, $31,413 of it was bet on the debut of the Head-to-Head proposition offered in the featured Eddie Read. This figure represented 0.19 % of the total pool (okay, let's round up and call it 0.2 % -- looks better), which is just about where it belongs until, hopefully, it is put out of its misery.

At first glance, it seemed as if the news about the latest addition to the Breeders' Cup program was purposely and very effectively buried during a week in which the Mavs reigned marvelous, Rory saved golf, and the Bruins ruined life as we know it for Western Canadians.
