Breeders’ Cup fever is here with the announcement of the pre-entries for next week. We are just over a week away from the biggest weekend in the sport. On Thursday afternoon, Ricky’s Rockets are live from Belmont Park and Churchill Downs with two fantastic cards!
Also included below: my 10-race preview of Churchill Downs!
Best of luck!
Race 6: $40,000 Maiden Claiming for 3-year-olds and upward going 7 furlongs on the dirt OFF TURF
TURF RUNNERS SCRATCHED! WILL BE USING: #14 TENDERFOOT AND #15 MY FIRST GRAMMY.
Race 7: Maiden Special Weight for fillies and mares 3-year-olds and upward going 7 furlongs on the dirt
#4 Tactical Move hit the gate from the start, and was dead last for the early portion of the race. She’s shown plenty of speed in the mornings, evidenced by her bullet works, but needs to show that speed in the afternoons. #6 Undine finished just ahead of Tactical Move on October 2, in her 2020 debut. Look for her to be better in her second start this year.
Race 8: $80,000 Allowance Optional Claiming for 3-year-olds and upward going 6 furlongs on the dirt OFF TURF
TURF RUNNERS SCRATCHED! WILL BE USING: #4 WICKED TRICK AND #12 WENDELL FONG.
