HALLANDALE, Fla. -- Ninety-two horses were entered for the Breeders' Cup -- 71 American, 21 European. For the first time there are European-based horses in every race. But the Florida heat is expected to hurt their chances, just as it did at Gulfstream in 1989 when the European contingent was winless.* Pleasant Tap is the lukewarm favorite to win the Classic. He has run in three previous Breeders' Cup races without winning. He was sixth in the '89 Juvenile with Eddie Delahoussaye riding; eighth in the '90 Turf with Jerry Bailey up; and second in the Sprint last year with Delahoussaye again in the irons.
