Breeders’ Cup 2011: Saturday Wrap-up

No doubt Goldikova’s final race will be many people’s chief memory of the day – add in some truly bizarre results throughout the weekend, and this year’s Breeders’ Cup looks like a bit of a head-scratcher in retrospect. But think of the high points: Joseph O’Brien (surely, the only jockey in the world who […]

Breeders’ Cup 2011: Friday Wrap-up

Some quick highlights from Friday: Secret Circle looked sharp, but Shumoos was perhaps more exciting finishing just behind him. And there were some great longshot wins from Musical Romance and Perfect Shirl. My Miss Aurelia looks to have a bright future, and I really need to make back all I lost with a strong showing […]

Breeders’ Cup Mile

The moment you have all been waiting for – the Goldikova show! With the exception of the connections of the horses running against her (and one would imagine that even some of them are hoping she’ll make history), it would be hard to find anyone not looking for the French star to end her career […]

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 […]

Breeders’ Cup Turf

Insert ‘European Vacation’ jokes here…and expect a blanket finish from the stars who have flown in from across the pond.

Post Horse Jockey Trainer ML Odds 1. St Nicholas Abbey Joseph P. O’Brien Aidan O’Brien 9-2 Certainly very accomplished, but I think Sarafina has his number this time. 2. Sarafina Christophe Lemaire Alain De Royer-Dupre […]

Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile

Or, the race that Uncle Mo should have been running in. You know this.

Post Horse Jockey Trainer ML Odds 1. The Factor Martin Garcia Bob Baffert 7-2 Bad luck last time out, but has he returned to his best form? 2. Shackleford Jesus Castanon Dale Romans 7-2 Ran out of gas before, but this […]

Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint

Some old rivals return to the turf for a little speedwork…

Post Horse Jockey Trainer ML Odds 1. Grand Adventure Javier Castellano Mark R. Frostad 20-1 It’s been a long time since he’s found the winner’s circle. 2. Holiday for Kitten Joel Rosario Wesley A. Ward 30-1 Has some good experience, but with lesser company. […]

Breeders’ Cup Sprint

On to the grown-up speedsters…Big Drama is looking to defend his title.

Post Horse Jockey Trainer ML Odds 1. Euroears Rafael Bejarano Bob Baffert 4-1 Had a bad trip last time out, but has otherwise had a convincing campaign this year. 2. Giant Ryan Cornelio Velasquez Bisnath Parbhoo 8-1 He’s won six in a row […]

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 […]
