 d through 300 tackles this year, with Andrew Fifita acco

ARCADIA, Calif. -- California Chrome is undefeated in six starts this year. Arrogate is 4 of 5 and won the Travers with the fastest time in the races 147-year history.The 2014 Horse of the Year and the young challenger are set to face off in the Breeders Cup Classic.The 1 \\-mile Classic worth $6 million is the richest of 13 races to be run Saturday at Santa Anita, the ninth time the track has hosted the world championships. The race will be shown live in prime time on NBC.California Chrome is the early even-money favorite with a chance to expand his career earnings of more than $13.4 million, which already make the 5-year-old horse the richest in North American history.Arrogate is a late-developing 3-year-old gray colt who didnt run as a juvenile. His first start didnt come until April, when he finished third. Hes won his four subsequent starts by over 23 lengths.His record speaks for itself, his jockey Mike Smith said. Hes been training unbelievably. Hell need to repeat the race he ran in the Travers to beat California Chrome and the others, but hes got the talent.Arrogate drew the far outside post in the 10-horse field. He is the 5-2 second choice and will try to deliver a record third straight victory in the Classic for trainer Bob Baffert as the only 3-year-old in the race.California Chrome will break from post No. 4 under Victor Espinoza, who rode American Pharoah to Triple Crown glory last year.Hes going to be very difficult to outrun, Smith said. If theres anyone that has a chance to upset the apple cart, I think Im on the right horse.California Chrome finished third in the Classic two years ago at the end of his 3-year-old season, in which he won the Kentucky Derby and Preakness and finished in a dead-heat for fourth in the Belmont.He only got beaten a neck, but he wasnt at his best mentally, trainer Art Sherman said of Chromes previous Classic run. He shipped around a lot that year and went through the Triple Crown races. Theres such a difference between how hes coming into this years Classic and then.Now hes got his game face on when he gets to the paddock. Hes all business; he knows what he has to do. He brings his `A game. Chrome is bigger and stronger than ever. The way he runs now, hes become a push button horse; hell do whatever Victor asks of him, Sherman said.Arrogate exploded onto the national scene in the Travers in August, winning by 13 \\ lengths at Saratoga while setting a track record in the process.Hell have to be really good to beat Chrome, Baffert said. Now I know how the other guys felt last year when I had American Pharoah.Baffert won last years Classic with Triple Crown champion American Pharoah and the 2014 edition with Bayern.Besides Arrogate, Baffert will saddle Jockey Club Gold Cup winner Hoppertunity in the Classic.Other Classic starters are: last years runner-up Effinex; Met Mile and Whitney winner Frosted; Keen Ice (fourth last year); Gold Cup winner Melatonin; Shaman Ghost; War Story; and Win the Space.In the $2 million Filly & Mare Turf, Lady Eli tries to continue her successful return from a life-threatening illness as the early 5-2 favorite for the 1 \\-mile race.The 4-year-old fillys career was stalled for 13 months because of laminitis, a hoof ailment that led to the death of 2006 Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro. Lady Eli, winner of the 2014 BC Juvenile Fillies Turf, beat the odds and returned in late August to finish second in the Ballston Spa at Saratoga.She followed that up with a victory in the Flower Bowl Invitational at Belmont last month. Her owners plan to keep her racing next year.It already is an incredible story, but it would have an incredible new chapter if she is able to do this, trainer Chad Brown said. It would secure her place in history as one of the all-time greats.In Saturdays other Breeders Cup races:- Trained by Baffert, Noted and Quoted is the early 9-2 favorite in the 12-horse field for the $2 million Juvenile Fillies.- Masochistic is the early 2-1 favorite in the $1.5 million Sprint.- Ireland-bred Obviously is the early 6-1 favorite in the $1 million Turf Sprint that includes Undrafted, co-owned by former NFL star receiver Wes Welker.- Not This Time is the early 7-2 favorite for the $2 million Juvenile, whose winner is often tabbed as the winter favorite for next years Kentucky Derby. The 2-year-old colt is trained by Dale Romans and ridden by fellow Kentuckian Robby Albarado. The 11-horse field includes Syndergaard, named for New York Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard. Three-time Juvenile winner Baffert saddles Klimt.- Britain-bred Flintshire is the early 5-2 favorite for the $4 million Turf, a race typically dominated by European-based runners. Flintshire is one of two entries trained by the New York-based Brown, along with Money Multiplier. Irishman Aidan OBrien also has two entries: Found and Highland Reel. Both are co-second choices at 3-1.- Haveyougoneaway is the early 3-1 favorite in the $1 million Filly & Mare Sprint. Brown has a pair of entries: Irish Jasper and Wavell Avenue.- Ireland-bred Limato is the 7-2 early choice for the $2 million Mile. OBrien saddles three horses: Alice Springs, Cougar Mountain and Hit It a Bomb.A.J. Brown Titans Jersey . The judges scored it 48-47, 48-47, 49-46 for Jones (19-1). It was the champions closest call. Despite the loss, it was a remarkable show by the confident Swedish challenger, who had the best of the early rounds and then hung on in the fourth and fifth. Bruce Matthews Womens Jersey .Y. - General manager Billy King says the Brooklyn Nets are looking to add a big man and confirmed the team worked out centre Jason Collins, who would become the first openly gay active NBA player if signed. . And when it opened, every player was at his stall. Thats a sure sign that a team is in a slump and is searching for answers. "Its embarrassing to be at home and play the way we did," said defenceman Josh Gorges. Ryan Tannehill Womens Jersey . Two pressure cooker bombs exploded near the finish line of the April 15 race in an area packed with fans cheering the passing runners. Three people were killed and more than 260 injured, including at least 16 who lost limbs. Marcus Mariota Youth Jersey . -- About a third of the way through the regular season, the Washington Wizards are at .KEY TO YOUR NRL CLUBS FINALS SERIES SUCCESSMELBOURNEStrength: Their no-fuss style. Missed the least tackles and made the least errors this year. Its why they finished first and were 50 points better than any other defensive outfit.Weakness: They only lost four games while close to full-strength, but they were to Canberra, Canterbury, Cronulla and Brisbane - all teams they could face in the next month.CANBERRAStrength: Their attack. They scored more points (688) this season than any other team than in the past decade and have still scored 96 points in the past fortnight without injured playmaker Blake Austin.Weakness: That 20-minute switch-off. They got away with it against Parramatta and Manly in recent weeks, but it wont wash in finals football.CRONULLAStrength: Their forwards have busted through 300 tackles this year, with Andrew Fifita accounting for 82 of them. He and Paul Gallen have also cracked the 3000-metre run mark, while the team has produced 340 offloads.Weakness: Theyve missed the second-most tackles (669) of the finals teams, and their two highest counts have come in the past month against Melbourne (41) and St George Illawarra (35).NORTH QUEENSLANDStrength: Rejuvenated Johnathan Thurston. Was quiet by his standards in the Cowboys mid-season slump, but has set up five tries and six linebreaks in the three wins leading into the finals.Weakness: Have lost to each of the other top-five teams, who they are likely to only meet between now and the decider. Also provide the least offloads of all teams in 2016, which the best defensive teams will know and rely on.BRISBANEStrength: Theyll make the opposition worrk for every opportunity.ddddddddddddThe Broncos have conceded the least penalties (5.5 per game) and made the second-least errors (8.7 per game) of all teams this year, making field position hard to come by.Weakness: Halves Anthony Milford and Ben Hunt can be inconsistent. Hunt has failed to set up a try or a linebreak in nine games this year, including in four of the past five weeks. Milford has done likewise on six occasions.PENRITHStrength: Finals matches are generally tight, and no-one wins more close ones than Penrith. Theyve won seven matches by four points or less this year, more than any team in the competition.Weakness: Only the Titans have a worse defensive record of all top-eight teams, while Penrith have also missed 32 tackles per match.CANTERBURYStrength: Sam Kasiano returns from suspension. He often provides much-needed momentum off the bench, as evidenced by the fact the Bulldogs score more points than any other team between the 20th and 40th minute.Weakness: They have the worst attacking record of any team in the finals, including an average of just 13.8 points per match since their second bye.GOLD COASTStrength: They love the grind. Work their way into almost every match and have beaten Canberra and Penrith doing that this year, before drawing with the Sharks.Weakness: Theyre still adapting to a game plan with late arrival Jarryd Hayne at the back, and wont have much more time to learn with an elimination final against Brisbane on Friday.*Stats courtesy Fox Sports Stats.
