Southern California horse racing has chosen a fitting way to open up a crucial meeting. It named a race for Eddie Delahoussaye. Santa Anita will be back in business Friday, for a meeting highlighted by the first of two straight Breeders' Cups. Around here, the best way for the sport to separate itself from the muck that has stalled recent growth is to put on two more dazzling Breeders' Cups, as it did in 2008 and '09. There is no Zenyatta to carry the show this time, but putting a spotlight on Eddie D. on opening day is a smart and worthy gesture.

It has been longer than he'd like, longer almost than he can remember since jockey Eddie Delahoussaye has been on a horse he likes so much, been on a horse he trusts and understands, been on a horse he thinks can win a big stakes race.
