Group I winner Twice Over makes his 2011 debut March 3 in the Al Maktoum Challenge Round III. Gitano Hernando will start in the same race; his performance will decide whether he starts in the Dubai World Cup March 26.

Countdown to the Cup: Early Angles

Countdown to the Cup: Early Angles

As we all know there is always an angle or two we can latch on to in the Breeders' Cup. The trick is finding them among the morass of stakes horses that line up for the 14 races. There probably are more chances of landing a longshot on a synthetic surface, because, in all honesty, does anyone really know how to handicap these races?

Countdown to the Cup: Zenyatta's Turn

Countdown to the Cup: Zenyatta's Turn

Now that Rachel Alexandra is through for the year, it is time for Zenyatta, the defending Queen of all Turfdom, to take center stage, and her presence will be a welcome sight in a year where the Breeders' Cup has gone a bit haywire.

Gitano Hernando Pointing for Belmont

Team Valor International and Gary Barber's Gitano Hernando, who is being prepared for the Belmont Stakes (gr. I) by trainer Marco Botti at Newmarket in England, easily won his 3-year-old debut March 29, going a mile and a quarter on turf at Doncaster.
