Handicapping the presidential race at the Breeders Cup.

A benefit of having the 33rd running of one of thoroughbred racing's most prestigious international events, the Breeders Cup World Championships at Santa Anita Park (Saturday for a record, 9th time) Hollywood, California is the celebrities who'll mingle among the horse-people. 

DemoCast asked some of the celebs who came to predict the winning horses who they like to win the presidential race. Of particular note is actress Susan Sarandon, a social activist who publicly broke with the liberal party line to reject Hillary Clinton as 'way more dangerous than Donald Trump.' She said, in an interview with the BBC, based on what she saw during the primaries, the DNC is "so corrupt, it's not worthy of our votes."

Finally, Kevin Dillon, star of "Entourage" TV series and motion picture walked down the red-carpet with his wife, actress Jane Stuart and discussed his appreciation for a good horse race track day.

Local favorite stallion, California Chrome (the all-time leading North American horse in earnings won) was upset by Arrowgate final furlongs of the Breeders Cup Classic. Will the political underdogs, Donald Trump or Jill Stein, catch such a break this Election Day?
