Breeders Cup Predictions #5

Breeders Cup Predictions #5

Five changes this week as we get closer to the big day.

Classic: Game On Dude – Still my pick for another week.  Too many factors going his way right now.

Ladies Classic: Royal Delta – Now I’m hearing Royal Delta will run in this spot, so she’s my top choice.  However, this is going to be a very difficult race.  She is not a slam dunk like some people think.

Mile: Wise Dan – Just brilliant at Keeneland over the weekend.  I’ve heard some people pushing for him to run in the Classic, but I think that would be a mistake.  He’s a monster at a mile.

Turf: Optimizer – He worked a bullet last Monday.  Getting ready!

Juvenile: Power Broker – I was impressed with Shanghai Bobby this weekend, but I like the home track advantage of Power Broker.

Dirt Mile: Shackleford – I’m still searching hard for someone else to pick in this race, but as of right now Shackleford is the choice.

Turf Sprint: Bridgetown – Big win for him at Keeneland so I’ll stick by him for another week.

Sprint: Coil – Yet another Bob Baffert horse that should have a major shot to win on Breeders Cup day.

Filly and Mare Sprint: It’s Tricky – Many of you probably were disappointed with her effort this week against Royal Delta, but I was not.  Why?  Because now I think they’ll spot this horse where she belongs…the Filly and Mare Sprint OR the Dirt Mile.  She’ll be tough in either one.

Juvenile Turf: Noble Tune – There are a lot of names to choose from here, but I think Noble Tune has been the most impressive of the group.  Still believe Brown Almighty can compete as well with a clean trip.

Filly and Mare Turf: Nahrain – Not thrilled with this selection, but her win in the Flower Bowl is enough for me to keep her in this spot.

Juvenile Filly: Executiveprivilege – The competition is going to be really stiff, but I just can’t pick against Executiveprivilege

Juvenile Filly Turf: Watsdachances – Chad Brown is loaded with 2 year old turfers…can’t go against him.

Marathon: Eldaafer – He wasn’t good in the Hawthorne Gold Cup this weekend, but he’s still my pick until we find out who will actually be pointing towards this race.

Juvenile Sprint: Beholder – What an eye-popping performance by her this week.  Yet another filly that I think can beat the boys in this one.
