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.

12:55 pm: Here we go again go again go again. A triple carryover of $485,964 into Friday's card will create the third seven-digit Pick-6 pot of this carryover-crazy Belmont fall meeting.

1:15 pm: Happy Jockey Club Gold Cup Day at Belmont Park, where it's fast and firm, sunny and 73 degrees. A few housekeeping notes about the 11-race card, which includes 5 of the 9 Grade 1 races at the meeting:

12:55 pm: A $539,765 triple pick-6 carryover, and a peculiar pick-5 with four stakes races including two steeplechases, will make for an unusual and challenging Thursday afternoon of exotic wagering at Belmont Park. The first two races on the 10-race card, the $75k William Entenmann and the $150k Lonesome Glory (a G1 steeplechase) are over the fences. Those are the first two legs of a pick-5 that continues through a four-horse $100k Parlo Stakes in the 3rd and a seven-horse Spite the Devil stakes for statebred milers in the 5th.

1:15 pm: It's a hot and humid Wednesday at Belmont Park, where nobody picked six opening weekend, creating a $137, 011 pick-6 carryover for the third day of the meeting. Time to jump in the pool.
