Welcome to week three of our Breeders’ Cup Predictions! We’ve got a massive weekend coming up as Santa Anita opens up on Friday, and has FIVE “Win and You’re In” races on Saturday. Belmont Park has two “Win and You’re In” races on the card for Saturday as well, so it will be a busy week of watching and studying. As for last weekend we saw the incredible Songbird dominate the Cotillion so she will remain our my pick to win the Breeders’ Cup Distaff. Here are the rest of this week’s predictions:
The Classic – California Chrome
2016 Record: (4) 4-0-0
Trainer: Art Sherman
Jockey: Victor Espinoza
Analysis: He returns this week in the Grade 1 Awesome Again Stakes at Santa Anita. At this point it’s still very clearly a two horse race between him and Arrogate. We’ll see if this weekend changes that in any way…but I highly doubt it does. Looking forward to seeing Chrome romp this weekend.
