Breeders Cup 2009 - Nov 6, day 1 in the books

It was 16 of 18 top threes in day one who were descendants of our little Dancer. They took home over 80% of the $7,000,000 purse money. I think it's fair to say they will take home the majority of the $25,000,000 available this weekend. All this from the little guy nobody wanted for $25,000 when he was a yearling in 1962. The live coverage on the Breeders Cup website was outstanding. I wonder if Ted Beare made it down to Santa Anita this year? He has been to every Breeders Cup since he retired from our Brantford Expositor some 15 plus years ago and an inspiration for my book. You can click on the chart from each race to enlarge them. The earnings were just approximated.
