Breeders’ Cup Juvenile

2 year olds. On dirt. Cue often-misguided early Derby buzz.

Post Horse Jockey Trainer ML Odds
1. Take Charge Indy James Graham Patrick B. Byrne 30-1
Looked very tired in his last race (and I say this as a fan of his dam, Take Charge Lady).
2. Dullahan Kent Desormeaux Dale L. Romans 8-1
Half to Mine That Bird tries the dirt. Looked good on turf, but will his form translate?
3. Crusade Julien Leparoux Aidan P. O’Brien 12-1
European invader also a dirt debutant.
4. Drill Martin Garcia Bob Baffert 8-1
Still learning, but worth keeping an eye on.
5. Hansen Ramon Dominguez Michael J. Maker 10-1
Undefeated in two starts and generating some buzz.
6. Prospective Luis Contreras Mark E. Casse 30-1
Won two out of three at Woodbine.
7. Creative Cause Joel Rosario Mike Harrington 7-2
Looks bred for turf, but seems to love the dirt. Impressive Norfolk winner.
8. Speightscity Corey Nakatani Gary Contessa 20-1
Big step up in class, but they are all only 2.
9. Alpha Garrett Gomez Kiaran P. McLaughlin 15-1
Second to Union Rags in the Champagne.
10. Union Rags Javier Castellano Michael R. Matz 2-1
Undefeated buzz horse looks a strong favorite here.
11. Daddy Long Legs Ryan Moore Aidan P. O’Brien 12-1
Another European horse, but with a very American pedigree.
12. Fort Loudon Luis Gerardo Stanley Gold 20-1
Very experienced, but another taking a jump up in class.
13. Optimizer Robby Albarado D. Wayne Lukas 15-1
Another who looks like he could go for either turf or dirt.

Predictions: Union Rags, Dullahan, Creative Cause, Alpha
Longshot: Prospective
