Friday Breeders’ Cup Selections


Bet the 2 yr old races with caution. Most are racing without Lasix for 1st time. We don’t know how they’ll react.

SA RACE 4 ~ BC Juv Sprint ~ (2 star)

#5 SUPER NINETY NINE – the fastest horse, can stalk or bust it
#3 MERIT MAN – the one to beat, may regress with big jump in figures
#6 HAZARDOUS – freaked 1st dirt after claim and lots of vet work for new barn
#7 SWEET SHIRLEY MAE – working very well, proven closer

SA RACE 5 ~ BC MARATHON ~ (3 star)

#9 ALMUNDENA – been in US pointing for this for months, gives above average appearance on track this week
#10 ELDAAFER – the one to beat, working his way back to best shot
#6 CALIDOSCOPIO – also been in US for months pointing for this, didn’t give best appearance after last work
#12 WORTH REPEATING – 2/2 on dirt, stalks, will make presence know in stretch

SA RACE 6 ~ BC JUV FILLY TURF ~ (2 star)

#5 SPRING VENTURE – unbeaten and untested
#3 SKY LANTERN – strictly the one to beat
#6 WATSDACHANCES – a very good filly, won 3 in a row
#1 KITTEN’S POINT – ONLY US horse to NOT run with Lasix prior, big late mover

SA RACE 7 ~ BC JUV FILLY ~ (2 star)

#3 SPRING IN THE AIR – a real closer in a race packed with speed
#5 DREAMING OF JULIA – should revert to closing tactics, feel she might bounce
#2 EXECUTIVEPRIVLIEGE – big question mark and last few works have not been good
#6 ALMOST AN ANGEL – 1st time dirt, may clunk up for a share

SA RACE 8 ~ F&M TURF ~ (4 star)

#4 THE FUGUE – fresh, been pointed for this for months, 2/2 at distance
#10 RIDASIYNA – don’t know if she’ll excel on firm turf
#9 MARKETING MIX – the best chance for the US horses
#6 LADY SHAMROCK – 3/3 at SA, 1/1 at distance but seems a tad over matched


#2 MY MISS AURELIA – will rate of serious pace, stays unbeaten
#1 GRACE HALL – almost put her on top, closes stoutly, can take advantage of hot pace
#6 ROYAL DELTA – has never put 2 big figure wins together, may bounce and still hit the board
#5 AWESOME FEATHER – a stalker, may be one to catch at the 1/8th pole


About Author

TOP PICKS & SUGGESTED WAGERS I handicap the races and list Four Horses per race (plus another in case scratches) in order of preference starting with the Top Pick so multi-race and inter-race wagers can be formed. Currently, I am focused on KEENELAND AND BELMONT PARK  providing my Pick5, Pick4 and Pick3 wagering strategies. My selections for turf races are 2nd to none. I find value and Double Digit Top Pick Turf Winner as my specialty.. Spot Plays may also be included in the daily selections, weekends more probable. Tracks for potential Spot Plays include SANTA ANITA, CHURCHILL DOWNS, LAUREL PARK, GULFSTREAM PARK, and CANTERBURY DOWNS. I'll focus around turf races looking to cash nice tickets.
