Breeders&rsquo; Cup fever is contagious and leading to curious decisions regarding the Grade 3, $500,000 BC Marathon.\r\nDespite finishing 16th in his most recent start Oct. 16 at Newmarket, European long-distance specialist Precision Break will run in the 1 3/4-mile Marathon, his connections said. It will be his first start on dirt.\r\nDespite finishing last by more than 90 lengths Oct. 2 at Hawthorne, California-based Temple City also will run in the Marathon. The Hawthorne Gold Cup was his first start on dirt; reportedly, he did not handle the surface. Perhaps he will like Churchill Downs.\r\nFinally, improving Where&rsquo;s the Remote remains under consideration for the Marathon, notwithstanding $60,000 in eligibility fees for a chance at the $300,000 winner&rsquo;s share of the $500,000 purse. The alternative is stay home to race as one of the favorites a week later in the $250,000 Hollywood Turf Cup on Nov. 13.\r\nWhere&rsquo;s the Remote was purchased by owner Greg Unruh in July. Four starts for Unruh and trainer Mike Mitchell have produced two allowance wins and a runner-up finish in the Grade 1 Clement L. Hirsch.\r\n&ldquo;He was a great buy,&rdquo; Mitchell said. &ldquo;We don&rsquo;t want to do something stupid.&rdquo;\r\nMitchell entered Where&rsquo;s the Remote in a turf allowance Thursday at Hollywood Park and will not decide until Monday whether to supplement to the Marathon &ndash; Where&rsquo;s the Remote has never raced on dirt &ndash; or go in the Turf Cup.\r\nLaaheb, a Europe-based gelding once considered the tepid Marathon favorite, has been withdrawn from consideration, but a European might still end up as the favorite. Tastahil, five-length winner of a Group 3 on Oct. 16, reportedly is pointing for the race.
