HORSE RACING UPDATE:
If you're thinking you'd like to get in on the action and don't want to wait until 2010 to start your new pursuit, the exciting "season-ending championship of Thoroughbred racing" is this weekend!
The Breeder's Cup is a young race but has now become "the richest two days in horse racing" every year with a purse of over $25 million!! (I wonder WHICH celebrity the equine winner will be dating after collecting that loot!)
My boy, Mine That Bird, will be there trying to sneak past undefeated Zenyatta. Zenyatta, a mare, is the latest story of girl power at the races. (Rachel Alexandra was the tough girl on the beat this summer).
Mine That Bird's Derby win
Zenyatta's Lady's Secret Stakes win
