Abrams Seeks Rare Double With Lethal Heat

Barry Abrams plans an unprecedented first when the Oak Tree Racing Association hosts the Breeders' Cup World Championships at Santa Anita on Nov. 6 and 7.

"I’m going to run Lethal Heat in the Ladies’ Classic on Friday and down the hill on Saturday," said Abrams, apparently not expecting Zenyatta to defend her crown in the Ladies’ Classic.

That's hysterical... yes, he's done this many, many times. I've even seen when he's run Saturday and then a holiday Monday... but never in 24 hours.
...and most trainers won't wheel a horse back in three weeks! Gotta love the old school thinking. Good luck Lethal Heat and Mr. Abrams.
