Lo Duca Still has a chance at a Championship?

Mets catcher Paul Lo Duca still has a shot at a championship in late October; but it won’t be a World Series. In case you forgot, the Mets suffered the second worse collape in MLB history a short month ago. Nowadays, he’s focusing his attention on another sport.
Lo Duca co-owns a horse that is racing in the Breeder’s Cup Juvenile Fillies division tomorrow. His name is Grace Anatomy — an obvious homage to the hit ABC show Grace Under Fire — and he’ll take on a field of 13 other Fillies at Monmouth Park in New Jersey.
As of this morning, the odds of a Grace Anatomy win is 10-1 and ESPN’s Jeremy Plonk actually lists Grace as his favorite at a respectable 5-2. But knowing Lo Duca’s track record against other Fillies this year, I’d look for Grace Anatomy to sustain a lead for the first mile or so and eventually fade into second down the stretch.
For the record, I’ll pick Indian Blessing to Win, Grace Anatomy to Place & Proud Spell to Show. Now cough up $18, head to the Turf Club and put a $3 trifecta box on it. Trust me.
