Showing Good “Judgement” On Breeders Cup Day 2 (11/1/14)

Nov 1st, 2014 | By | Category: Breeders Cup, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for day 2 of the Breeders Cup.  The good news is that there was no huge speed bias yesterday on dirt or turf (although Tapiture might have run down Goldencents on any other track), and as predicted, horses marooned on the outside in those mile turf races did not run well.  My best bet and pick 4 single, Lady Eli also won. so the day went well, but not great.  Let’s see how I do today.

In race 5, The Filly and Mare Turf, Just The Judge (#2) comes back in two weeks off a big win at Woodbine after a problem trip in first U.S. start — can keep it going with a good stalking trip behind a moderate pace.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s and play an exacta box with #’s 3 and 7.

In race 7, The Turf Sprint, Silentio (#2) could have run in the Turf Mile, but instead, his connections decided to cut him back — he will get a very fast pace up front and will be flying at the finish with a clean trip.  Key in all doubles and pick 3′s, play a nice wager across the board and an exacta box with #’s 11 and 1.

In race 10, The Sprint, Mico Marguerite (#7) is in the best form of his life and has the right style to close from about 5 lengths off the lead at a huge price — key in all doubles and pick 3′s, play a nice wager across the board and play an exacta box with #’s 6 and 4.

In race 12, The Breeders Cup Classic. Candy Boy (#12) will be a big price, but he may be sitting on a big race and was flattered when Tapiture ran big in the mile yesterday — play a nice wager across the board, use in pick 3, pick 4 and pick 6 tickets.  Even though Don’t Tell Sophia and Taputure put in nice closing runs yesterday, I still don’t think a rally from far back will be effective on this track in this race, so I’m minimizing the chances of Zivo and Tonalist!  Here’s the entire card and good luck!
