Though two big European names, Powerscourt and Motivator, will not be running on Breeders' Cup World Thoroughbred Championships day, the contingent of foreign-based horses is quite strong, Nick Clarke, retired head of the International Racing Bureau, said from Belmont Park Sunday morning.
By late Sunday afternoon, all of the European horses scheduled to compete in the Oct. 25 Breeders' Cup World Thoroughbred Championships had arrived in Southern California. As they arrive, they are finding the weather much warmer than where their flights originated.
