Giving My “Approval” On Day 2 Of Breeders Cup At Del Mar (11/4/17)

Nov 4th, 2017 | By | Category: Breeders Cup, Today's Picks

Fast and firm for Day 2 of the Breeders Cup — not a bad day yesterday with 3 winners on top, including my best bet, and a flat bet profit.  Also had a nice pick 3 to end the day — remember that the main track is still favoring speed and the turf course is playing fairly, so play accordingly.  Forever Unbridled’s win in the Distaff was by far the best performance of the day because she did it against the bias with a sweeping move on the turn — I picked her on top but she would have been a best bet if the bias wasn’t on my mind.  I guess the message today is that class will prevail despite the bias!  A great undercard as well, so let’s see how I do today!

In race 9, The Grade 1 BC Mile, World Approval (#5) has found his calling with his turnback to a flat mile and he can sit right behind a brutal pace and get the jump on the closers — anything in the 4-1 range is a great price.  Key in all doubles, pick 3′s and pick 4 and play an exacta box with #’s 10, 7 and 8.

In race 6, The Grade 1 BC Filly & Mare Sprint, Skye Diamonds (#12) is perfect on the local surface, has a great stalking style from perfect post to run these down — trainer won Sprint with my best bet Amazombie in 2011 and Unique Bella will be a short price so I will get 5-1!.    Key in all multi-race wagers and play an exacta box with #’s 11 and 10.

Just a word on the Classic — if Gun Runner (#5) keeps his current form, he will win this.  If they go very fast early, maybe Mubtaahij (#6) can pick up some pieces at a price.  Don’t think this is Arrogate’s best surface.  Here’s the entire card and good luck!!!!
