Looking over the Breeders' Cup card I began to see a trend.  Colts that ran well in their own edition of the Cup make good broodmare sires.   Ten of the Broodmare Sires represented were winners of 11 Breeders' Cup races.   Here are some stallions that will be represented this weekend (BC plus the Las Palmas), not all were winners, but they all ran races that could have made them winners on the day.
