The under-card is done and it’s time for the start of the 2011 Breeders’ Cup at historic Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky. The early races didn’t give a whole lot of clues as to how the main track, listed as ‘Muddy’ earlier today, is playing. The two sprint races finished in quick times that resembled more a “Fast” track. The other two races, however, were on the slow and tiring side.
Following the fourth race,, Churchill Downs upgraded the main track to Good. The turf course is still listed as Yielding.
