On this week’s Off to the Races podcast, we focus on the Breeders’ Cup, with a peek around at other news.

In our Win-Place-Show news segment, our three news stories in the money were:

  • a wrap-up of the just completed Virginia racing season with Debbie Easter, president of the Virginia Equine Alliance;
  • a visit with Carol Holden of West Virginia Breeders Classics to chat about Ruby Notion, the West Virginia-bred filly entered in the Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Filly Turf;
  • and a conversation with Ted Black, who recently spoke with 22-year-old jockey Nik Juarez, who has his first Breeders’ Cup mount aboard Valid in the Dirt Mile (which, contrary to the conversation, takes place Friday).

We discuss why Pennsylvania-bred Favorite Tale is our Big Mover of the Week.

And finally, we talk with Linda Dougherty, Gary Quill, Derby Bill Watson, and Nick Hahn in a handicapping roundtable focusing on four key Breeders’ Cup races, as well as their other top picks of the weekend
