The Breeders’ Cup Classic is this Saturday, Nov. 5th and you can use my Breeders’ Cup Classic trifecta pick to win big. Some great horses are scheduled to run in the Classic. Arrogate and California Chrome look like locks to win straight up. But a dog could get into the trifecta. Keep reading for my trifecta bet on the Classic!
Breeders’ Cup Classic Trifecta Pick
What: 2016 Breeders Cup Classic
When: Saturday, November 5, 2016
Start Time: 8:30 PM ET
Where: Arcadia, CA
Stadium: Santa Anita Park
Stream: NBC Sports Live
Top of My Breeders’ Cup Trifecta Pick
- Arrogate – His 1:56.36 time in the Travers makes that race the best by any horse this year. Arrogate has every right to win the BC Classic on Nov. 5.
- California Chrome – Chrome has beaten the best of the best, save for Arrogate, so far this year. He dominated Beholder and Dortmund in the Pacific Classic this past August winning the race by 5 lengths.
Second Slot In My Breeders’ Cup Trifecta Pick
- California Chrome
- Melatonin – The David Hoffman’s trainee has enough speed to stay closer to Arrogate and California Chrome early in the race than a lot of the others entered. Melatonin, if he wants to run for third place, could pick up third place money.
Third Slot In My Breeders’ Cup Trifecta Pick
- California Chrome
- Gun Runner – I liked the way he closed in the Travers and the Pennsylvania Derby to finish third in the Travers to Arrogate and second in the Pennsylvania Derby to Connect. In both races Gun Runner made up ground while nobody else did.
- Hoppertunity – Only California Chrome consistently puts in an honest race the way that Hoppertunity does every time he steps onto the track.
- Shaman Ghost – He turned the page with his brilliant win in the Woodward Stakes where he out fought Frosted to the wire.
