Breeders Cup Predictions #3

Breeders Cup Predictions #3

Four changes this week…

Classic: Game On Dude – He remains my pick for a third straight week, but will this weeks action sway my opinion?

Ladies Classic:Questing – I’m still going to stick by her.  The track at Parx was strange, and she did spot My Miss Aurelia some weight.  What a race this is going to be!

Mile: Wise Dan – Dominating performance in the Woodbine Mile, next stop…Breeders Cup Turf Mile.

Turf: Optimizer – Hey, what can I say, I’ve got a weak spot for this horse!  Obviously he’s found his niche, and is there any doubt he can run all day on the lawn?  I think he’ll do what his daddy did, win this thing in wire to wire fashion.

Juvenile: Know More – Really impressed with his second place effort at Del Mar last time out.  Felt like he was the best horse.

Dirt Mile:Rail Trip – Looking for a change here….will be watching this weekends races closely.

Turf Sprint: Bridgetown – Changed it up a bit this week.  This is really wide open…

Sprint: Amazombie – I really want to pick a long shot here, but just can’t go against Amazombie.

Filly and Mare Sprint: Dust and Diamonds – Asmussen has handled this horse with extreme care, and it could pay off in a huge way.

Juvenile Turf: Brown Almighty – It looks like he’s heading for a rematch with Java’s War in the Bourbon Stakes at Keeneland.  That race will tell us a lot.  I felt like Brown Almighty got a very suspect ride in his last race.

Filly and Mare Turf: Zagora – Her performance at the Spa last time out was really strong.

Juvenile Filly: Executiveprivilege – She’s still my top choice, even though Dreaming of Julia looks awfully tough as well.  This is a very deep division, but you have to love the consistency and class Executiveprivilege has shown.

Juvenile Filly Turf: Speedinthruthecity – Really like her last race as a felt like she got the worst of the trips in her third place effort last time out.

Marathon: Eldaafer – Redeemed has been retired, so Eldaafer is now the selection mainly because it’s a real question mark as to who will even be in this race.

Juvenile Sprint: Carried Interest – If they can get him 100% healthy, he could be a force.  His maiden win was one of the more impressive ones I’ve seen this year.
