  • #10 AFFIRMATIVE LADY (6-1) should improve off the first start and appears to be a major player in this race. She is well bred for this spot. This one has to be respected going out for the combination of Motion and Velazquez.
  • #11 ADIVA (5-1) makes sense on speed figures. This one seems to fit well enough here.
  • #6 KLASSY BRIDGETTE (5-1) is likely to take a step forward off the debut effort. She ran really well which isn’t easy at first asking. This one has the pedigree to be a major player in this spot.

  • #9 ARABIAN LION (7-5) goes out second time and appears to be a major player in this race. His debut effort was good enough to beat this group. This one has the top overall power rating in the group.
  • #11 TRES SOLES (5-1) ran a very productive first effort and should take a step forward off that one.
  • #7 TAP IN FORMATION (10-1) is a price horse and feels like a fringe contender in this spot.

  • #3 CUPID’S CLAWS (20-1) is a price horse and could be in with a shot in this race based on the stamina he’s shown in prior races. This one may not win but is a good one to have underneath in exotics.

Breeders’ Cup- Race 6

Post: 3:00 PM ET; $1000k Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf Sprint going 5 1/2 furlongs on turf; Entries: 15

  • #11 SPEED BOAT BEACH (6-1) looks best here if he can work out a trip. He will likely be in the first flight of runners and should be in with a chance late. This one has proven to be able to handle these conditions in previous starts.
  • #2 LOVE REIGNS (4-1) appears to be a major player in this race. She drew much better than many of the other speeds. This one goes out for Ward who always has them ready to fire.
  • #9 SHARP AZA TACK (15-1) is a price horse and appears to be a factor here. He definitely likes to wing it, but most of the speed horses drew to his outside which may mean if he’s fast enough, he can get the lead and try to hang on.
  • #7 OXYMORE (8-1) has proven to be able to handle these conditions in previous starts. This one comes into the race in really good form.

Selections: 11- 2 – 9 – 7

Post: 3:40 PM ET; $2000k NetJets Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies going 1 1/16 miles on dirt; Entries: 14

  • #3 AND TELL ME NOLIES (8-1) gets the top selection. She has proven to be able to handle these conditions in previous starts. This one makes sense on speed figures.
  • #10 CHOCOLATE GELATO (7-2) appears to be a major player in this race. She has been really solid in recent starts and should be ready to run a big one here. This one has races good enough to beat this group.
  • #2 YOU’RE MY GIRL (10-1) has to be respected going out for the combination of Terranova and Velazquez. This one comes into the race in really good form.
  • #8 ATOMICALLY (12-1) is a price horse and feels like a fringe contender in this spot. This one goes out for the Pletcher barn and gets Saez in the irons.

Post: 4:20 PM ET; $1000k Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf going 1 mile on turf; Entries: 16

  • #3 LAST CALL (20-1) is a price horse and looks like a major upset threat. She shouldn’t have trouble with the 1 mile distance. This one has been good at these turf miles.
  • #1 COMANCHE COUNTRY (15-1) is another price horse with a shot. She has proven to be able to handle these conditions in previous starts. This one has been really solid in recent starts and should be ready to run a big one here.

Breeders’ Cup- Race 9

Post: 5:00 PM ET; $2000k FanDuel Breeders’ Cup Juvenile presented by Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance going 1 1/16 miles on dirt; Entries: 10

Cave Rock | ABR
  • #3 CAVE ROCK (4-5) towers over this field on paper. Weird things can happen in racing, but betting on prayer is a long term losing strategy. Single race wagers may be tough to make money on here, but pairing this one with a price in the previous race may be your best bet to cash on this likeliest Friday winner.
  • #10 NATIONAL TREASURE (8-1) goes out for the Baffert barn and gets Velazquez in the irons. This one shouldn’t have trouble with the 1 1/16 mile distance.
  • #5 VERIFYING (10-1) is a horse that makes a little sense for the minors.
  • #4 FORTE (4-1) is in good form, but is just unlucky to run into a beast. The fact that this one will be 2nd choice in the odds makes him a tough value pill to swallow.

Selections: 3 – 10- 5 – 4

Breeders’ Cup- Race 10

Post: 5:40 PM ET; $1000k Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf going 1 mile on turf; Entries: 14

  • #4 SILVER KNOTT (3-1) looks like a potential monster in this race. Charlie Appleby has been extremely high on this horse the races speak for themselves. On speed figures this won is a deserving favorite.
  • #2 PACKS A WAHLOP (6-1) is drawn inside and should get the best of the pace if the favorite didn’t travel well. He has proven to be able to handle these conditions in previous starts.
  • #6 ANDTHEWINNERIS (5-1) appears to be a major player in this race. He seems to fit well enough here.
  • #13 MAJOR DUDE (10-1) is a price horse and should be competitive in this spot. He has run against some really good horses and been successful at the turf mile before.

Selections: 4-2 – 6- 13
