Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf

Look! 2-year-olds on the turf – lots of them! This should be an interesting betting race.

Post Horse Trainer Jockey ML Odds
1. Gung Ho Michael Maker Mike Smith 20-1
Has some winning experience, but wasn’t quite up to it when tested last time out. Update: scratched.
2. Fantastic Song Chad Brown Javier Castellano 20-1
Only two races so far, but he showed promise.
3. Shkspeare Shaliyah Doodnauth Shivmangal Alex Solis 15-1
Never out of the money – so far.
4. Farraaj Roger Varian Neil Callan 15-1
Decent in Europe; should be a threat.
5. Wrote Aidan O’Brien Ryan Moore 12-1
Another solid European performer.
6. Coalport Wayne Catalano Junior Alvarado 15-1
And another good-looking, lightly-raced son of Kitten’s Joy.
7. Caspar Netscher Alan McCabe Kieren Fallon 6-1
UK-based colt has more wins than some in this field have starts.
8. Majestic City Peter Miller Garrett Gomez 4-1
Still learning, but has shown some talent.
9. Daddy Nose Best Steve Asmussen Julien Leparoux 30-1
Big step up in class.
10. Animal Spirits Al Stall Jr. Robby Albarado 8-1
Comes in off a win in the Bourbon, but can he beat the Euros?
11. Excaper Ian Black Emma-Jayne Wilson 30-1
Canadian-based colt sticks with his regular jockey.
12. Lucky Chappy Graham Motion Joel Rosario 10-1
Third in his first US start, but a winner in Italy.
13. Finale  Todd Pletcher John Velazquez 5-1
Has three consecutive wins to his credit.
14. State of Play  Graham Motion Ramon Dominguez 5-1
Undefeated (in two starts), has the right tools.
15. Tequila Factor Wayne Catalano Rafael Bejarano 30-1 (AE)
Unlikely to start, and has never faced this sort of company. Update: Makes the field! Still a longshot.

Predictions: Caspar Netscher, Wrote, Lucky Chappy, Coalport
Longshot: Fantastic Song

  • An outstanding wagering race!
    I’ll be looking closely at Fantastic Song as he hails from a barn that I follow.

    Hoping for a few scratches to simplify the routine and hopefully clear the hurdles for the best late kickers.

    I don’t think more than twelve green two year olds should be allowed on the Churchill Downs turf course. Anything more is an accident just waiting to happen.
