The Saturday column ( www.drf.com/news/steven-crist-will-take-charge-follows-rarely-taken-path-championship ) discusses the remarkable turnaround of Will Take Charge's 2013 campaign, which is about to be rewarded with a Champion 3-year-old Eclipse Award and is even garnering him some support for Horse of the Year, despite his distant finishes in all three Triple Crown races.

12:45 pm: More than two hours until the first of today's nine Breeders' Cup races, but just 30 minutes until the start of the biggest pick-5 pool in the bet's history, with just over $891k carried over afternobody hit the wager amid the longshot parade in yesterday's early races.

4:30 pm (ET): I normally don't play SoCal carryovers, even if they start with $439k in the kitty like today's does, but since it's the eve of Breeders' Cup Friday, I might as well follow along and it's not as much fun to follow along if you're not playing, so I've quick-capped it and will be putting in some tickets shortly.

Here's your annual Breeders' Cup pre-entries cheat sheet, an at-a-glance summary of the preliminary lineups for the 14 races and the records of the 172 horses pre-entered for them. This chart is the source for today's column (click here) on the leaders and combined stats of the entire pre-entered group.  The table should be self-explanatory. The "HWL" column header stands for "Highest Winning Level," referring to the top level of race won by each horse.
