2015 Breeders Cup Betting Cheat Sheet
Race 3 – Breeders Cup Juvenile Fillies
Win: Songbird 7/5 – The 7/5 chalk has won her first 3 races by a combined 16.25 lengths. She can run any way that she wants. She can take the lead or lie right off.
Place: 9-Rachel’s Valentina 7/2
Show: 2-Tap to It 8/1
Race 4 – Breeders Cup Turf Sprint
Win: 12-Ready for Rye 12/1 – His record of 5-2-2 out of 10 lifetime races makes him one of the most accomplished animals in this. He can run with the leaders, lie right off, or lay 4 to 5 lengths off before making a run.
Place: 4-Lady Shipman 5/2
Show: 1-Purse Sensation 6/1
Race 5 – Breeders Cup Filly and Mare Sprint
Win: 7-Wavell Avenue 12/1 – This Chad Brown charge lost by only a half-length to La Verdad in the Grade 2 Gallant Bloom in her last. La Verdad is one of the favorites in the Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Sprint while she’s offering double-digit odds on the morning line.
Place: 14-Cavorting 3/1
Show: 2-Dame Dorothy 10/1
Race 6 – Breeders Cup Filly and Mare Turf
Win: 9-Miss France 6/1 – She finished a head behind Impassable, a contender in the Breeders’ Cup Mile, in her last race. Trainer Andre Fabre is one of the top trainers in the world. Plus, she’s offering much better odds than Legatissimo.
Place: 3-Legatissimo 8/5
Show: 12-Secret Gesture 8/1
Race 7 – Breeders Cup Sprint
Win: 10-Salutos Amigos 12/1 – There is a ton of speed in this race. Salutos Amigos is arguably the best closer in it. He’s a warrior with 32 races under his belt and he should get the perfect set up for his devastating closing kick.
Place: 13-Private Zone 5/2
Show: 8-Wild Dude 10/1
Race 8 – Breeders Cup Mile
Win: 7-Tepin 12/1 – Her First Lady victory over the Keeneland turf was a brilliant run. She might get the same give in the ground on Saturday. She can lead or stalk and jockey Julien Leparoux really knows what buttons to push to get her to run her best race. The odds are juicy on Tepin to win the Mile.
Place: 12-Time Test 6/1
Race 9 – Breeders Cup Juvenile
Win: 14-Waterloo Bridge 30/1 – Trainer Aidan O’Brien and owner John Magnier don’t spend money to ship horses to the U.S. to run unless they feel that they can win. There is nothing that says that this guy will like dirt. But in the most wide-open BC race on the card, why not go for the longest shot in the race?
Place: 3-Greenpointcrusader 4/1
Show: 4-Unbridled Outlaw 15/1
Race 10 – Breeders Cup Turf
Win: 1-Golden Horn 4/5 – His only loss was in the Juddmonte International where Arabian Queen beat him by a neck. Yes, he’s chalk, but he’s also the only real sure thing on Saturday’s Breeders Cup Card. Hey, if anything, you just found your key horse for your Pick 4, Pick 3 and Pick 6 tickets.
Place: 9-Found 8/1
Show: 7-Big Blue Kitten 8/1
Race 11 – Breeders Cup Classic
Win: 10-Beholder 3/1 – She can lead if need be, stalk, or come from behind. It all depends on the pace. She’s got a hall of fame trainer in Richard Mandella and a hall of fame jockey in Gary Stevens. Her win in the Pacific Classic was devastating. She has the ability to start and stop. Plus, she’s going to go off at better odds than American Pharoah.
Place: 4-American Pharoah 6/5
Show: 5-Gleneagles 20/1
