Here's a look at Lost in the Fog's competition for Horse of the Year honors.
YEA: Four-year-old filly has three Grade 1 victories in 2005. Second place or better in Breeders' Cup Distaff pushes her past Azeri as all-time leading money-winning female.
NAY: Only three fillies have won Horse of the Year since 1936.
YEA: Four-year-old colt (above) comes in with impressive back-to-back wins (Pacific Classic and Jockey Club Gold Cup) and hasn't run a clunker all year.
NAY: Those two races are his only wins in six starts since February.
ROCK HARD TEN
YEA: He's 3 for 3 as a 4-year-old. Victory in BC Classic would make it four straight, and that was enough for Ghostzapper last year.
NAY: The Breeders' Cup will be only his second race since March and his first outside California this year.
