Weekend Warrior for Oct. 11: Picks for QE II Challenge Cup, Knickerbocker, Cal Distaff


With the major Breeders’ Cup preps behind us, the stakes pickings are slim Saturday. The only two graded stakes on the schedule are the Grade 1, $500,000 Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup at Keeneland and the Grade 3, $200,000 Knickerbocker at Belmont. Both races are scheduled to be run on turf, but both might be run on courses affected by rain.
