Breeders’ Cup 2009: Turf

#, Horse, Trainer, Jockey, ML odds

1 Telling, Steve Hobby, J. Castellano, 20-1
Sword Dancer winner is competitive with American turf runners, if not often in the winner’s circle.

2 Conduit (IRE), Sir Michael Stoute, R. Moore, 7/5
Wins almost every time he does not face Sea the Stars – a worthy returning champion.

3 Red Rocks (IRE), B.J. Meehan, J. Leparoux, 20-1
2007 winner of this race has struggled to find his best form this year.

4 Allegre, Brian Koriner, J. Velazquez, 50-1
Big step up in class; distance may also be a concern.

5 Dar Re Mi (GB), John Gosden, L. Dettori, 3-1
Second to Zarkava last year and beat Stacelita (let’s be honest) – good result in the Arc (pictured).

6 Presious Passion, Mary Hartmann, E. Trujillo, 4-1
Best US-based chance in the race; always gives his all.

7 Spanish Moon, Sir Michael Stoute, K. Fallon, 5/2
Very solid European performer (although American by birth) is a strong threat here.

8 Monzante, Mike Mitchell, R. Bejarano, 30-1
Recent form does not suggest a huge threat here.

Picks: Dar Re Mi, Conduit, Spanish Moon, Presious Passion
