Volponi, Jose Santos up (second from right, blue and pink silks) charges to the lead on the final turn of the Breeders' Cup Classic last Saturday, passing War Emblem (3) and Medaglia d'Oro (with Jerry Bailey up, in red and white cap). Volponi's win was his first in five starts, and he went off at 43-1, the longest odds in the field.
Holy Cross defensive tackle Nicholas Nelthorpe can only watch from the sideline as the clock runs out during his team's rain-soaked 21-12 loss to Lehigh in Worcester, Mass., last Saturday.
