Check out my Fri/Sat (Nov 2-3) Breeders’ Cup analysis (available now) at TodaysRacingDigest.com. Upcoming analysis – Breeders’ Cup from Santa Anita (Nov 2-3) and Churchill Saturdays (Nov 10, 17, 24).
SA 1 (BC Juvenile Filly Sprint Preview, 7f) #3 Truly Marie (5-2) graduated in a 5.5f synthetic sprint at Del Mar and built up her stamina in back-to-back flat mile turf events . Sadler excels turf/dirt and Rosario ends up here. #1 Bares Tripper (9-5) is the inside speed and she romped in her lone dirt try at Fairplex (Barretts Deb.). #4 Unusual Way (3-1) ran out of her mind when switched to dirt in NoCal last out. Bonde is struggling here but she has some talent and Dominguez hops aboard. The Plays: #3 to win, Exacta 3/1-4, Exacta 1-4/3
SA 2 (BC Juvenile Turf Sprint Preview, 6.5T) #12 Mico Margarita (8-1) ran well in his 5.5f turf spring bow at the Spa and went all the way in his dirt sprint graduation run at Big Sandy Sept 15. I love early-pressing types from outer posts in downhill sprints and Asmussen saddled hillside winner Unbridled’s Note from this post earlier in the meet. Rosario strings along. I have to give #5 Gabriel Charles (20-1) a longshot look. I liked him in his last pair but he disappointed both times. I had a feeling that they might try the green and he sports two local turf bullets for this engagement. Dam has tossed a turf winner and Mullins shows a profit first turf. #7 Moulin De Mougin (6-1) ran to her strong downhill pedigree Oct 7 and there could be plenty more in the tank. The Plays: #12 to win, Exacta 12/5-7, Exacta 5-7/12
SA 3 (Damascus, 7f) #7 Sir Bond (3-1) finished well to land the place behind quality rivals (Saratoga Snacks, Hierro) in both one turn starts. Asmussen took over the training duties last time and patient rider Leparoux knows him now. #3 Politicallycorrect (3-1) ran well in both extended sprints and today’s pilot Rosario guided him to a place finish in May. A tactical trip is anticipated. #4 Mile High Magic (2-1) has been 1-2-3 in all six outings but he might prefer a bit less ground. In the hunt throughout under Bejarano. The Plays: #7 to win, Exacta 7/3-4, Exacta 3-4/7
