Weekend Warrior for Saturday, Oct. 15: Picks for Pebbles, Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup, California Distaff


You could call it the calm before the Breeders’ Cup storm, but Saturday’s stakes schedule is the lightest by Saturday standards in months. There are just two graded events, the Grade 1, $500,000 Queen Elizabeth II Challenge Cup at Keeneland and the Grade 3, $200,000 Futurity at Belmont, which drew a field of only five.
