Racing fans came out in large numbers Friday for the first four races in 2015’s end-of-year championships. Among them was Bud Ferguson from Lombard Illinois, just outside Chicago. He won in an earlier race and told WEKU’S Stu Johnson he expects an upset in Saturday’s final race, the Breeder’s Cup Classic.
“Do you think American Pharoah’s gonna do it?,” asked Johnson.
“No, I think this Irish colt, Glenn Eagles, trained by Aidan O’Brian and ridden by Ryan Moore. He’s number one in Europe. I think he’s gonna take it,” said Ferguson.
