ARCADIA, Calif. -- The Breeders Cup is a family affair for the OBriens

ARCADIA, Calif. -- The Breeders Cup is a family affair for the OBriens from Ireland.Horse racings international festival, the Breeders Cup features 13 season-ending championships worth a combined $28.5 million over Friday and Saturday at Santa Anita.Once again, many of the best runners in the world will assemble for the prize money and the prestige of taking home a trophy.Not surprisingly, the foreign contingent is led by Aidan OBrien who brought 12 horses from his Ballydoyle training center in Ireland.OBrien is the leading international trainer in the Breeders Cup with 10 wins, ranking third overall. OBriens horses have earned a collective $17.2 million in the series.OBrien also brought along son Joseph, a former Breeders Cup winning jockey, now following in his fathers footsteps as a trainer.Joseph OBrien rode St. Nicholas Abbey to victory in the 2011 Turf for his father. Now OBrien, 23, could make history as the youngest trainer of a Breeders Cup winner if Intricately takes the $1 million Juvenile Fillies Turf.Joseph OBrien retired from the saddle this summer after a losing battle to maintain riding weight.The last few months I was riding became quite hard weight-wise. I dont really miss it (the riding) and I love training now, OBrien said.Joseph OBrien will have brother Donnacha aboard Intricately, a 6-1 shot who most recently captured the Moyglare Stud Stakes at the Curragh in Ireland.Josephs biggest obstacle could be his father. Aiden OBrien saddles two runners in the race: Roly Poly, the 4-1 choice and Hydrangea at 6-1.The star of Aidan OBriens Breeders Cup crew is Found, the brilliant 4-year-old filly who returns to defend her title against the boys in the $4 million Turf.She rallied from far back to win last year over a rain-softened course at Keeneland. Conditions should be firm this weekend in sunny Southern California.As if Found wasnt enough firepower, OBrien will also send out Highland Reel, the Arc runner-up.The Turf, the richest grass race of the weekend, also features Ulysses, trained in England by Sir Michael Stoute.Other notable international stars in the Breeders Cup include:-Aidan OBriens Seventh Heaven in the $2 million Filly & Mare Turf on Saturday. The 3-year-old has already captured the Irish Oaks and the Yorkshire Oaks this season. The race also includes Japanese mare Nuovo Record, a career winner of just under $5 million.-Mongolian Saturday,returning to defend his title in Saturdays $1 million Turf Sprint.

Andrew Luck lost his favourite target and the Indianapolis locker room lost one of its most revered leaders when Reggie Wayne was diagnosed Monday with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee that will cost him the rest of the season. A look at whats happening all around the majors today:---ROCKIN WRIGLEYIts been 71 years since the Chicago Cubs reached the World Series. They can finally halt the drought with a victory at home against the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 6 of the NL Championship Series at 8 p.m. EDT. Anticipating a long-awaited pennant, excited fans at jam-packed Wrigley Field will certainly be on the edge of their seats.THE MARQUEE MATCHUPStanding in the way of a huge Cubs party is rested Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw, perhaps the best pitcher in baseball. Shaking off his previous playoff struggles, the three-time Cy Young Award winner is 2-0 with a 3.72 ERA in three starts and one relief appearance this postseason. With the Dodgers down 3-2 in the best-of-seven NLCS, will he rescue them again or flop in October once more? Game 7 would be Sunday night, if necessary.Weve won two games in a row before, Los Angeles first baseman Adrian Gonzalez said. Nothing says we cant do it Saturday and Sunday.Kyle Hendricks, who led the majors with a 2.13 ERA this season, gets the ball for Chicago. Kershaw beat Hendricks 1-0 in Game 2 at Wrigley Field.ON THE MENDAll-Star starter Danny Salazar plans to throw a three-inning simulated game, and the AL champion Indians will assess his status before deciding whether to put him on their World Series roster. Salazar hasnt appeared in a major league game since Sept. 9 because of tightness in his right forearm. But hes thrown well in recent bullpen sessions and could be an option in the Fall Classic -- even if that means working in relief. I think hes ready to pitch, manager Terry Francona said.ddddddddddddCleveland also hopes Trevor Bauer will be available after his Game 4 start in the ALCS lasted less than an inning when his stitched right pinkie opened up and he had to be replaced because of excessive bleeding. Bauer said his finger is healing and hes confident the added rest before the Series will allow him to pitch. Game 1 is Tuesday night in Cleveland.PUT ME IN, COACHWild Thing is stuck in the bullpen. While actor Charlie Sheen, who played Ricky Wild Thing Vaughn in the movie Major League, offered to throw out the ceremonial first pitch before one of this years World Series games, Major League Baseball said the choices were already made. A spokesman said MLB worked with the Indians to identify former franchise greats to do the honors in Cleveland. There had been a movement by fans on social media for Sheen to throw out a first pitch and be part of pregame festivities. Released in 1989, Major League is a fictional account of the Indians finishing in first place with an unconventional group of players, including Vaughn.TIGER TALKDetroits new batting instructor is a familiar face in Motown. The team hired former Mariners and Pirates manager Lloyd McClendon as hitting coach and Leon Durham as assistant hitting coach on Friday. McClendon returns for his second stint with the Tigers after serving as bullpen coach in 2006 and hitting coach from 2007-13. He managed the Tigers Triple-A affiliate in Toledo this season, guiding the team to a 68-76 record.
