It's been a harrowing week for most of us in the New York area, but it appears that our site has finally recovered from the devastating power of Hurricane Sandy.  We apologize for the inconvenience. Our annual Breeders' Cup HandiGambling exercise will go on hiatus until next year.  I will select a race for next week's contest in the next blog entry.

Pace made the race in two of last weekend's important grass events. In the Grade 1 Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup going nine furlongs at Keeneland, DAYATTHESPA, the lone confirmed speed on paper, made some quality rivals pay by setting dawdling splits of 24.52, 49.11 and 1:13.96 before turning on the afterburners at the quarter pole.  No filly was making up any ground due to those fractions and you may want to forgive the poor running lines put up by horses like STEPHANIE'S KITTEN.
