ARCADIA, Calif. (AP) - D. Wayne Lukas, a high-school basketball coach in Wisconsin before turning to training horses, is well-versed in the old cliche that records are made to be broken.

The Hall of Famer knows that his Breeders' Cup records will someday fall, even though he has set the bar pretty high.

The 77-year-old Lukas has won 18 Breeders' Cup races, double the total of Shug McGaughey, his closest pursuer. His horses have won over $20 million in the season-ending championships. Bill Mott is next with $14.4 million.

Lukas hasn't surrendered yet. He has four horses running this weekend in the Breeders' Cup at Santa Anita and would love to lift his marks further out of reach.
