Although former Pixies bassist Kim Deal is the only original remaining in the band, the five current Breeders play as equals. At Tuesday's Trocadero show, drummer Jose Medeles sat front and center, flanked by Deal and her guitarist twin sister, Kelley. Bassist Mando Lopez and guitarist Richard Presley - both of early L.A. punk band Fear - capped off each side, creating almost perfect symmetry. It was soon clear that this visual crispness would not be matched by the merrily shambolic sound offered by the group.

Forget about the nine-year gap between the Breeders' last record, the ricochet-rocking smash Last Splash, and their moody new Title TK (4AD/Elektra), the sturdiest, most honorable rock CD of 2002, a blunt, nonchalantly mid-tempo work recorded with a pure-analog, first-take feel by Steve Albini. After all, forgetting about the gap is what guitarist Kelley Deal is doing. "Thank God we're still releasing records and that people love that we're still raw," she said about the band's frenzied rock resolve.

The main objective was fun Friday night at the Theatre of Living Arts, where the Breeders made their first Philadelphia appearance in two years. It was like hanging out with old friends at a house party. When an audience member from the capacity crowd yelled out a garbled request, effervescent bandleader Kim Deal requested that she repeat it. When the reply was "Never mind," Deal playfully retorted, "Chicken!" While Deal and the band posed as laid-back partygoers, they certainly didn't play that way, unveiling new songs from a soon-to-be-recorded effort, their first in four years.

ARCADIA, Calif. _ Bob Baffert is one trainer who never hides his feelings. When he thinks he has a special horse, he lets everybody know. It has been clear for weeks he is in love with American Pharoah, the certain favorite for Saturday's $2 million Breeders' Cup Juvenile at Santa Anita and the trainer's best hope for the 2015 Kentucky Derby. The Derby is still possible, but Baffert announced yesterday morning that American Pharoah won't make the Juvenile. "He has a deep foot bruise in his left front," Baffert said.

TTWO TEXAS quarter-horse breeders want a federal jury to rule that their cloned animals should be registered by the American Quarter Horse Association, something the organization has banned since 2004. Panhandle, Texas, rancher Jason Abraham and Amarillo veterinarian Gregg Veneklasen sued the 280,000-member organization last year in an attempt to overturn the prohibition of cloned horses from the registry. AQHA spokesman Tom Persechino said the antitrust lawsuit, to be heard in Amarillo beginning this week, will be closely monitored by horse breeders and registries worldwide because no registry currently allows clones.

LEXINGTON, Ky. - The key to the Breeders' Cup for me is to identify a few races in which I feel really confident and build my bets around those opinions, keying a horse in a multirace bet and using him on top in exactas and trifectas. Price doesn't matter all that much. I just want to be right and then try to frame bets correctly. Some of these 13 races are always impossible, and this year is no different. Not sure I have any 20-1 winners, like Work All Week last year, but I am selecting a few bombs along with what I hope are very logical winners that serve as means to an end, the end being cash, as much cash as possible.

Philadelphia animal-cruelty officers say six Lancaster County breeders sold sick, defective dogs at an Ohio auction last October and should be prosecuted for animal abuse. The breeders say the investigators fabricated phony abuse in a stunt to fan media attention and spur donations from pet-lovers. A judge will decide who's right, because the breeders have filed a federal lawsuit against the Pennsylvania Society for the Prevention of Cruelty Against Animals (PSPCA) and Main Line Animal Rescue.

Sue Johnson needed little time to make up her mind about Jenny. The Chihuahua sported a black-and-white coat and little tufts of reddish-brown fur over her deep, dark eyes. "She's very sweet," Johnson said. "How could you not?" Jenny met one more criterion that was essential for Johnson, of Quakertown, who got the dog for her sister Saturday at the Pets Plus Natural store in Lansdale: The animal came to the store from a rescue shelter. The big-eared pup was one of at least 10 rescued animals customers had adopted at the store by 5 p.m. Following the lead of hundreds of other pet stores nationwide, the owners have vowed to stop selling animals from commercial breeders at all 10 of their stores by the end of 2015 - converting them one by one to stores that handle adopted dogs and cats only.

Karen Mackay of Pitman saw some red flags before she bought a puppy almost two years ago from a dog broker in Salem County, particularly an inoculation record that didn't seem to come from a veterinarian. But Mackay adored the collie and decided to take it home for the holidays that December. By the time they got there, the dog, which Mackay had been told was in treatment for routine kennel cough, was vomiting and had diarrhea. "I should have known better," said Mackay, who has owned other dogs, including a collie mix. This month, the broker, Jessica Durkin of Salem, was sued by the New Jersey Attorney General's Office on behalf of four other dog owners who allege Durkin sold them sick puppies, including one so ill that the family had it euthanized.

With rescue dogs all the rage and shelters overflowing with homeless dogs, it seemed a little ironic to hear veterinarians talk Saturday about how to solve canine fertility problems. But their audience was a serious, sophisticated group of about 40 dog breeders who had traveled from as far away as North Carolina to learn about reproduction, genetics, behavior, and the dog microbiome at a scientific conference at the University of Pennsylvania. Specialized vets now monitor hormones closely to improve the odds of conception.

Federal regulators have launched an investigation into a Montgomery County farm accused by animal rights activists of mistreating animals it breeds for pet stores. Tanya Espinosa, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Department of Agriculture, said the agency began investigating Holmes Chinchilla Ranch of Douglass Township last month for possible violations of animal welfare laws. Holmes, which breeds hamsters and other small animals, came under scrutiny after People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals released videos and testimony alleging improper treatment and deaths at the farm.

LEXINGTON, KY. - Owner Paul Conaway and trainer Lupe Preciado considered putting their prized 3-year-old Favorite Tale on a plane for California last October to run in the $2 million Breeders' Cup Sprint at Santa Anita. But it would have been a last-minute decision without any planning. The horse stayed home on the backstretch at Parx Racing while owner and trainer pondered the future. They put together a plan when 2015 began to get their horse to Saturday's Sprint at Keeneland.

TORONTO - It is no surprise to find Howard Taylor's name among the owners of horses racing in Saturday's 12 Breeders Crown championships at Woodbine Racetrack. But even Taylor himself is surprised by the number of times his name appears. Taylor, a Philadelphia attorney and longtime harness racing horse owner, owns pieces of eight Breeders Crown contenders, including 8-5 morning line favorite Control The Moment in the $600,000 event for 2-year-old male pacers. "Frankly I'm shocked," Taylor said.

Susan H. McKean, 69, of Chester Springs, a dog kennel owner and breeder of bearded collies, died Saturday, Aug. 22, of cancer at her home. Mrs. McKean owned Talamore Kennels, Chester Springs, which bred and showed bearded collies. The breed, which originally came from Britain, is of medium size, with a medium-long coat and quizzical expression. The American Kennel Club (AKC) describes the dogs as smart, charismatic, and bouncy, although they can be stubborn. Mrs. McKean named the kennel for the Ambler family homestead of Thomas McKean, governor of Pennsylvania from 1799 to 1808, from whom her husband's family can trace his lineage.

OCEANPORT, N.J. - The crowd around the winner's circle got a little antsy. Those two women wearing the ornate Pharoah headgear they'd bought for $25 on a costume website. The guys next to them drinking their Bud Lights. American Pharoah was going around the back stretch at Monmouth Park, sitting easily in second place. The crowd had waited all day to let out a roar. One of the guys actually said, "Maybe not this time. " In the grandstand, trainer Bob Baffert saw his Triple Crown winner moving easily, even though the pace in the Haskell Invitational was fast.

For years when she was a child, Cozette McAvoy would ask her mom for a pony. One day years later it hit her that, hey, a high-powered corporate lawyer can buy her own horse. Since that revelation, McAvoy has become an owner, trainer and breeder of harness racing horses. She even shoes her own horses. And while many lawyers own horses, it's not as common to find ones who train and shoe them. "I don't really know any other attorneys that do this," said McAvoy, a Coatesville resident who received her undergraduate degree from West Chester, a master's from Lehigh, and law degree from the University of Georgia.
