Plays Breeders’ Cup Friday
The Breeders’ Cup is finally here, and Friday has four BC races on a big Keeneland card. Here is how I’ll play, but don’t let me pull you off a good horse. There are a ton of them to choose from. And keep the weather in mind. It’s been raining this week in Lexington, and track conditions could change the outlook. Nevertheless, here are my Friday picks:
All of my favorites here drew posts toward the outside in a 14-horse field here, but I’ll still go to the window with No. 12 Camelot Kitten (12-1). He came from way back in the Grade 3 Bourbon Stakes at Keeneland to score second, and a better start should put him over the top.
No. 8 Airoforce (4-1) won that race and should get some attention, but No. 14 Hit It A Bomb (9-2) is an Aidan O’Brien trainee who is two-for-two in Ireland. I’ll try to beat the morning line favorite, No. 13 Cymric (7-2).
12 across the board
14 to win
There is a lot of speed in this one, with No. 3 Liam’s Map (1-1) leading the way. If he’s pushed, I think the race sets up for a closer. No. 1 Red Vine (6-1) and No. 8 Wicked Strong (5-1) are ones to take that role. We’ll go with Red Vine.
1 to win
If Liam’s Map goes off at 2-1 or better, I’d put him in a three-way exacta box – 1-3-8.
Juvenile Fillies Turf
No. 8 Harmonize (7-2) is the ML fav here, and her outing in the G3 Jessamine at Keeneland makes her a temptress. But the handlers of No. 9 Nemoralia (15-1) have chosen this event over the Juvenile Fillies, and more and more she’s getting my attention. She comes over from the UK, and I think she’ll like the grass.
9 across the board
My favorites, No. 14 Sheer Drama (9-2), drew the outside post, and Untapable will be a scratch. This gives No. 12 Got Lucky (6-1) a clearer path, and I’ve liked this 4-year-old all along, because of her improvement this year. We’ll try an across-the-board ladder on her, and hope it pays.
12 - $2 to win, $4 to place, $8 to show (based on a minimum bet)
