Free Selections – Breeders’ Cup – Friday – 11/1/19

The big weekend is only a handful of hours from going to post at Santa Anita. The weather is supposed to be in the ’80s and sunny. It sounds like a perfect day for wagering and watching the action. – Here are some free selections to whet your appetite and get you ready to download your E-Z Win Forms to do battle with the best two days of racing of the year.


Santa Anita


Race #5 – The B/C Juvenile Turf Sprint -5f on the turf – 4:12 pm EDT

#7 – Kimari = A runner who has a stiff late kick and if you saw the Indian Summer at Keeneland she beat the boys after getting knocked around quite a bit. After getting settled, she set down and circled the entire field. Cuts back in distance and having John Velasquez back in the saddle is a strong plus.


Race #6 – The B/C Juvenile Turf  1 mile – 4:52 pm EDT

#14 – Hit the Road = A son of More Than Ready for trainer Dan Blacker with Flavien Prat getting the nod. He is 1/1 at SA that is a plus on this day. He exits a strong late win in the Zuma Beach and is 2/2 on the turf. The move to Prat may be the answer as he is winning 23% on the turf.


Race #7 – The B/C Juvenile Fillies – 1 1/16 – 5:32 pm EDT

#4 British Idiom = She comes from the red-hot barn of Brad Cox with Javier Castellano in the saddle. He was a winner of the G1 Alcibiades which has served as an important prep for this race. She is a perfect 2/2 and has the look of stalker just waiting to inhale the competition.


Race #8 – The B/C Juvenile Fillies Turf – 1 mile on the turf – 6:12 pm EDT

#12 – Sweet Melania = A daughter of American Pharaoh for the Todd Pletcher barn with Jose Ortiz getting the assignment. 3rd start off the layoff and exits an impressive win in the G2 Jessamine at Kee. She’ll be up close and Ortiz wins 20% with his early runners.


Race #9 – The B/C Juvenile – 1 1/16 – 7:03 pm EDT

#1  – Dennis’ Moment = Irad Ortiz has the call for Dale Romans and is a dangerous son of Tiznow. They are seeking three-in-a-row and exits a winning effort in the G3 Iroquois. Romans feels they are sitting on “go” and he is a versatile sort who can easily put out the lights.
