HORSE RACING

The 'Rider Cup' during the Breeders' Cup

The Times has put together a U.S. vs. Europe showdown, Ryder Cup style.

November 06, 2009|John Cherwa

The Times has put together a U.S. vs. Europe showdown, Ryder Cup-style (or is it Rider Cup?) for the Breeders' Cup. In each of the Breeders' Cup races two European horses will be matched against two U.S. horses. If one of those four horses wins the race, one point will be awarded to that team. If none of the four horses wins, half a point will be awarded to the highest finishing horse among the four. If only one European horse is entered, the U.S. will enter only one horse. The horses are drawn by morning-line odds. Post position in parentheses:
