Paul Lo Duca made it into Thoroughbred News last month – albeit for being sued by a Kentucky farm over a dispute that a stud fee hadn’t been paid involving former Breeders Cup star filly Storm Cat.
“It’s a total misunderstanding,” said the former Dodgers catcher. “When I get back (to New York) my lawyers and I will get it done.”
There’s no misunderstanding Lo Duca’s love for horse racing, and as the 37-year-old is getting into shape for a comeback try with a big-league team next spring, he’s focused on the Breeders’ Cup at Santa Anita this weekend, working as an analyst for TVG.
He’ll be on today’s TVG Breeders’ Cup preview show (5:30 to 6:30 p.m.) getting the lines on Friday’s races (repeated several times before the actual event begins on ESPN2 at 10 a.m.) and on Friday’s preview show (5:30 p.m.) for Saturday’s races.
