The Breeders' Cup is just two days away and with all the entries finalized, everyone now turns their attention to start seriously handicapping the field on every race.
Whether you are an old and wise handicapper or are just starting to figure out how to read the past performances, the Breeders' Cup, just like any other horse racing event is a challenge in itself.
There are many tools to handicap thoroughbreds. A lot of people prefer to read between speed and pace figures; others add in pedigrees, forms, tracks, trainers, jockeys, etc.
But in the end it comes down to whether you want to play for easy money or the big payday, and that is all about identifying who are the favorites and dark horses.
Let's take a quick look at who are those horses in this weekend's event so you can get started.
