The Breeders’ Cup World Championships at Keeneland provided an exclamation point for the racing season this past weekend, and American Pharoah is once again a unanimous No. 1 choice after a dominant performance in the Breeders’ Cup Classic. There was a shake up throughout the rest of the poll, as Runhappy, Tepin, Songbird and Nyquist all jumped into the top 10 while several others dropped in ranking or became unranked entirely.
