Bernardini and Skippy beside one another

How's this for funny? Woodbine's lone hope at the Breeders' Cup, longshot SKIP CODE, is stabled right beside superstar BERNARDINI (??) at Churchill Downs. Trainers Mark Casse and Tom Albertrani are friends from many years ago. Perhaps Skippy will get some helpful hints from the Classic favourite.

Woodbine has 11 races on-track on Saturday with the last post at 5:05 (first post is 11:55). The track and the teletheatres is essentially the only place other than your house and HPITV to watch the Cup as the Canadian network TSN is only showing the ESPN broadcast on high definition television. Ridiculous.

A drying out Churchill Downs surface means what for Cup day? Best to tab the results today and tomorrow to get an idea on the success of speed, closers and Polytrack runners.
