  The Breeders’ Cup will be run on November 4 and 5 at Keeneland Race Course in Lexington, Kentucky. In all, there will be fourteen races run in these world championships over two days. What does it mean when the best of the best from every division comes together?.... Longshot winners are more prevalent and the adrenaline she is a flowing. Will we see the likes of Arcangues (133 to 1 1993 Classic), Court Vision (64 to 1 2011 Mile) Take Charge Brandi (62 to 1 2014 Juvenile Fillies), or Order of Australia ( 73 to 1 2020 Mile) ?... Let’s look at some runners that might just shake up the world.
