Welcome to week two of our Breeders’ Cup Predictions! We had six win and you’re in races over the weekend, and two of those race winners are on our list this week. This weekend we have two win and you’re in races overseas at Newmarket, at well as the Grade 1 Cotillion and the Grade 2 Pennsylvania Derby from Parx which are not win and you’re in races but will serve as preps for several three years. Here is how we see things going into the weekend:
The Classic – California Chrome
2016 Record: (4) 4-0-0
Trainer: Art Sherman
Jockey: Victor Espinoza
Analysis: It’s almost impossible to go against him at this point as he’s shown several times that he’s in a class by himself this year. Our second choice, Arrogate, did have a big workout this weekend which does build more and more hype to what could be a match race type of scenario. The Awesome Again Stakes will be California Chrome’s final prep race.
