Digging “Miner” On Day 2 Of Breeder’s Cup At Churchill (11/5)

Nov 4th, 2011 | By | Category: Breeders Cup, Churchill, Today's Picks

I assume it will be fast and good for the ultra-competitive Saturday BC card — lots of surprises on Day 1 with some big prices so I’m sure that will be the case on Day 2.  Had two winners on top on Friday, but my top choices ran second twice and my second choices won twice. I also had a $916 trifecta if you boxed my horses in race 6.  Not a great day, but ok.  Let’s see how I do today.

In race 3, The Grade 3 Marathon, A.U. Miner (#11) ran great in the Jockey Club Gold Cup against the best in the country. likes the local surface and will appreciate the extra ground — key in all multi-race wagers and play an exacta box with #’s 4 and 10.

In race 6, The Grade 2 Turf Sprint, Regally Ready (#8) loves the local course and has run well on less than firm turf –can rate just off a sizzling pace and win this at 3-1 or better.  Key in all multi-race wagers and play an exacta box with #’s 10, 9 and 14.

In race 5, The Grade 1 Sprint, Amazombie (#7) can sit a perfect trip behind dueling leaders and may even be better on regular dirt — key in all multi-race wagers and play an exacta box with #’s 5 and 8.

In race 11, The Grade 1 Classic, Flat Out (#2) has strung 4 sensational races together, is working well and will appreciate the 1 1/4 distance — key in all multi-race wagers and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 11.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 5 with 8 and 1

Race 2: 8 and 3

Race 3: 11 (Best Bet) with 4 and 10

Race 4: 6, 10 and 13  (use 12 and 8 if expanding your ticket)

A “Can’t Miss” Breeders Cup At Churchill (11/4)

Nov 4th, 2011 | By | Category: Breeders Cup, Churchill, Today's Picks

Sloppy and yielding on day 1 of the Breeders Cup at Churchill.  The main track should dry out and may even be fast later on in the card, but changing conditions can complicate things.  Speed has been ok on both the main and turf courses and my feeling is horses do have an advantage being within 5 lengths of the lead, but keep an eye out for any biases.  Saturday should be fast and good since the weather will be ok, but let’s stick to Friday where several big favorites will be on display.

In race 8, The Grade 1 Juvenille Fillies, My Miss Aurelia (#9) is the speed of the field and should be ok trying two turns for the first time — hope for 2-1!  Key in all multi-race wagers and play an exacta box with #’s 11 and 7.

In race 9, The Grade 1 Filly & Mare Turf, Nahrain (#5) has fired big every time in short career and has the most upside of the Europeans.  Key in all multi-race wagers and play an exacta box with #’s 2 and 7.

In race 3, The Grade 3 Ack Ack Handicap, Equestrio (#7) moves way up on a wet track and will be a decent price so hopefully will give us more money to play with during the BC races — key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #2.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!

Race 1: 5 and 9

Race 2: 9, 6 and 1

Race 3: 7 (Best Bet) and 2

Race 4: 11, 4 and 5

Race 5: 6 and 3

Race 6: 4, 6 and 14 (use 5 and 2 if spreading ticket)

Race 7: 6, 3 and 7

Race 8: 9 (Best Bet) with 11 and 7

Race 9: 5 (Best Bet) with 2 and 7

Race 10: 2, 6 and 8
