Weekend Warrior for Oct. 12: Picks for QE II Challenge Cup, Knickerbocker, In Reality


Things are much quieter on the stakes front Saturday than they were the last few weeks. Keeneland has the big race of the day with the Grade 1, $400,000 Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup, and Belmont Park has a Grade 3, $200,000 stakes doubleheader with the Athenia and Knickerbocker. Those two races, like the QE II, are scheduled for the turf, and weather threatens to be a factor.
