Breeders’ Cup 2009: Mile

#, Horse, Trainer, Jockey, ML odds

1 Court Vision, Richard Dutrow, Jr., R. Albarado, 12-1
Looked good last time out, but this is a tall order.

2 Whatsthescript (IRE), John W. Sadler, K. Desormeaux, 15-1
Third in this race last year; has not won since August of the same.

3 Cowboy Cal, Todd Pletcher, J. Velazquez, 6-1
Won the Oak Tree Mile last time out; as with Court Vision, the distance seems a better fit for him, but it’s a big stage.

4 Delegator (GB), Saeed Bin Suroor, L. Dettori, 3-1
A notch below horses like Sea the Stars and Mastercraftsman, but could snag a win if Goldikova has an off day.

5 Karelian, George R. Arnold II, R. Maragh, 20-1
Second to Court Vision last time out; big step up in class.

6 Courageous Cat, William Mott, G. Gomez, 20-1
3-year-old seems to be developing nicely – perhaps next year.

7 Ferneley (IRE), Ben Cecil, R. Bejarano, 20-1
Beat Allicansayis Wow, second to Ventura. Likely to finish behind Goldikova.

8 Zacinto (GB), Sir Michael Stoute, R. Moore, 8-1
Most recently second to Rip Van Winkle at Ascot.

9 Gladiatorus, Saeed Bin Suroor, A. Ajtebi, 20-1
Formerly the world’s highest-rated racehorse (according to Timeform), he’s been hit and miss since then.

10 Justenuffhumor, Kiaran McLaughlin, A. Garcia, 10-1
Ultra-consistent until last time out.

11 Goldikova (IRE), O. Peslier, 8/5
The reigning champ (pictured) should equal Miesque’s feat and repeat.

Picks: Goldikova, Zacinto, Delegator, Ferneley
