The eyes of the horse racing world normally focus on the Albany area every summer, then look elsewhere for the rest of horse racing season. However, thanks to Mechanicville trainer Chad Brown, it will be represented with 11 horses in the Breeders' Cup.

In an interview with Tim Wilkin of the Times Union, Brown acknowledged that winning these high profile races would be a challenge, but he would be disappointed if he failed to secure some victories on this stage.

Brown, who has won two straight training championships at Belmont's fall meet, has won two races at the Breeders' Cup in his time as a trainer. He will have eleven chances to increase that total at this year's event, more than any other trainer, including legendary trainers Bob Baffert and Todd Pletcher.

The Breeders' Cup, referred to by some as the World Series of horse racing, is another huge opportunity to validate the Albany area as one of horse racing's truly great locations. It begins on Friday, November 1 and runs through Saturday, November 2 in Santa Anita, California.
