In the mad scramble leading up to Friday's 3:35PM (ET) first post, there is more information available than ever before to read and view before launching into your first wager. This influx of information is wonderful and almost entirely overwhelming.
One can't possibly absorb everything there is to see online, but I'd like to point my readers to the places I've visted most in the past few weeks.
Steven Crist has charted out each horse's highest winning level, top Beyer Speed Figure on any surface, and top Beyer on the BC race's surface (synthetic or grass.)
Claire Novak sent me an email earlier this week to advise, "that Garrett Gomez will be blogging for us during the Breeders' Cup over at ESPN.com." Check out Claire's post from November 2nd for an introduction from Garrett.
Ernie Munick is the official video blogger of the Breeders' Cup
