It was a beautiful day and great racing,  except my horse (Almost a Factor) stumbled out of the gate (in the Golden State Juvenile Fillies) and lost all chance.”Future Stars Friday featured five Breeders’ Cup races for two-year-olds, the second consecutive year of grouping all the juvenile races on the same day since the event expanded to its current two-day format in 2007.Friday’s all-sources handle was a record for a Breeders’ Cup Friday and represented a 5.4 percent increase over last year’s 10-race Future Stars Friday at Churchill Downs. Handle on Santa Anita’s 10-race program Friday was $6,340,351.CEDILLO LEADS PRAT BY ONE IN JOCKEYS’ RACEWith two racing days remaining in the 23-day Autumn Meet that concludes tomorrow, Southern California newcomer Abel Cedillo leads Flavien Prat, already a four-time Santa Anita champion, in the race for the riding title, 21-20.Cedillo is named on four horses today, Prat nine. On Sunday, Prat has four mounts while Cedillo serves the first day of a three-day suspension.PROSPECT OF MASSIVE SATURDAY PICK SIX POOL OF $5 MILLION IN PLAYThe best is yet to come. A slogan from several years ago, but no more relevant than tomorrow at Santa Anita Park, as players will be greeted not only by a total of nine Breeders’ Cup World Championship races, but they will also go to the races knowing there’s a very real prospect Saturday’s total one dollar Pick Six pool could approach $5 million, as there’s a mandatory payout accompanying a carryover from today of $489,379.With a festive on-track crowd of 41,243 attending day one of the two-day Breeder’s Cup today, the Pick Six began with race four and ran through race nine, which was the Grade I, $2 million TVG Breeders’ Cup Juvenile.Just one post time favorite came home on top today and the Pick Six was bookended by big longshots, as trainer Jeff Bonde’s Tap Back opened proceedings with a $30.00 score in race four, the $200,000 Golden State Juvenile Fillies and Peter Eurton’s longshot Storm the Court took race nine, the TVG Juvenile, to the tune of a $93.80 mutuel.The Pick Six and the 2019 Breeders’ Cup World Championships will finish with a crescendo as the 12th and final race on the card is the Grade I, $6 million Breeders’ Cup Classic.  Bob Baffert’s McKinzie is the 3-1 morning line favorite among a field of 11 at 1 ¼ miles. Approximate post time for the Classic is at 5:44 p.m.SHUBACK’S ‘HOLLYWOOD AT THE RACES’ AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE SUNDAYLongtime DRF columnist and foreign correspondent Alan Shuback will be on hand to sign his newly released book, “Hollywood at the Races,” Sunday, beginning at 11:30 a.m. near the Gift Shop in the East Paddock Gardens.Horse racing was so popular and influential between 1930 and 1960 that nearly 150 racing themed films were released, including “A Day at the Races,” “Thoroughbreds Don’t Cry,” and “National Velvet.”This fast-paced gossipy history explores the relationship between the Hollywood film industry, the horse racing industry, and the extraordinary participation of producers, directors and actors in the Sport of Kings.Celebrity presence at the racetrack generated a bevy of attention from eager photographers and movie columnists, as well as free publicity for their new films. Moreover, entertainment titans such as Louis B. Mayer, Bing Crosby, Fred Astaire, Betty Grable and Don Ameche were all major Thoroughbred owners, while Mickey Rooney, Chico Marx and John Huston were notorious for their unsuccessful forays to the betting windows.“Hollywood has gone nuts over horse racing, and by the same token, horse racing has gone nuts over Hollywood,”–Ed Sullivan.FINISH LINES: Daylight Saving Time ends Sunday. Turn your clocks back one hour tonight . . . Sad news from Las Vegas: Norm Kelley, retired longtime Director of Race and Sports at Sam’s Town Hotel Casino, passed away Friday after suffering a massive heart attack at his home in Henderson, NV. A Covina, CA native, Kelley was a lifelong horseplayer and spent a good deal of his youth at The Great Race Place.LATEST CONTENT FROM XBTV:FEATURES:Horses to Watch in the Breeders’ Cup Mile at Santa Anita Park on November 2nd, 2019Horses to Watch in the Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Sprint at Santa Anita Park on November 2nd, 2019Horses to Watch in the Breeders’ Cup Classic at Santa Anita Park on November 2nd, 2019BREEDERS’ CUP WORK OUTS:Covfefe (Cox) 10-30-19Matera Sky (Mori) 10-30-19Heavenhasmynikki (Hess Jr.) 10-30-19Omaha Beach (Mandella) 10-29-19United (Mandella) 10-29-19Ambassadorial (Chapple-Hyam) 10-29-19Shekky Shebaz (Servis) 10-29-19Blue Chipper (Young Kwan) 10-29-19 BREEDERS’ CUP PICK SIX COULD HIT $5 MILLION $140,175 2 1 44% 5 Abel Cedillo118 8 $577,822 3 Eddie Truman4 13% 61% John Shirreffs16 $247,063 11 14% 3 6 14% $357,912 15% Simon Callaghan23 $287,556 21 7 19% 11 Carla Gaines21 8 15% 4 24% 8 5 45% 33% 7 $316,951 38% 4 1 3 9% Vann Belvoir16 3 7 13% 54% $94,185 4 3 19 6 Flavien Prat87 3 $812,456 59% Evin Roman44 2 11 17% 26% 5 3 $241,219 8 Peter Eurton14 7 $629,384 5 18% 33% Drayden Van Dyke50 19% 21% 3 6 48% Mario Gutierrez37 2 8 $122,308 36% Jack Carava24last_img
