=== Race order finalized for 29th Breeders' Cup ===
 Arcadia,  CA  (Sports Network) -  The official  order of this year's Breeders'
 Cup  races has  been finalized.  The  two-day Breeders'  Cup will  be held  on
 Nov.  2-3 at  Santa Anita  Park and  for the  second time  will have  15 races
 worth  $26  million. This will  be the first of  two straight years that Santa
 Anita will host the event.
 There  were  some changes from the  tentative schedule for the second day that
 was  announced earlier this month, The Dirt Mile (formerly race 8) will go off
 as  the sixth race,  the Breeders' Cup Juvenile (formerly race 10) will now be
 run  as the eighth race and the Breeders' Cup Sprint (formerly race 6) will be
 run as the 10th race on the program.
 "With  the Sprint drawing  a large and talented field this year, we thought it
 would be best for our fans to bolster the latter portion of Saturday's card by
 placing  it  in third to  last position, preceding  the Mile and the Classic,"
 said  Bob Elliston, Breeders' Cup Chief Operating Officer. "Closing Saturday's
 card  with  the  Turf,  Sprint,  Mile and  Classic  should  reward  the  sharp
 handicapper with big value returns."
 Saturday's  Breeders' Cup  races begin with the Juvenile Turf, followed by the
 Filly & Mare Sprint, Dirt Mile, Turf Sprint, Juvenile, Turf, Sprint, Mile, and
 The first day's order remains as earlier announced: Juvenile Sprint, Marathon,
 Juvenile  Fillies Turf,  Juvenile  Fillies,  Filly &  Mare  Turf, and  Ladies'
