11/4 (DMR): 34th Breeders’ Cup ~ Saturday

Fun start to the BC weekend Friday with Forever Unbridled capping the day under Johnny V. in a well-orchestrated Distaff triumph. While a 3-start campaign doesn’t sit well with purists, no one can argue with the result produced by Dallas Stewart’s deliberate Championship path. Nice though that she’ll go forward into a 6yo season with the unusual Mr. Fipke eager to try some ambitious spots.

Wagering bumped along throughout the day with Rushing Fall ($8.00) & Best Performance (16-1) keying a great Juvy Filly Turf outcome that produced big returns. Chad Brown and Bob Edwards repeated in the event (New Money Honey in ’16) and have a shot to upset Bolt d’Oro today with Good Magic.

DEL MAR ~ BREEDERS’ CUP FRIDAY

Some will come away delighted and some maddeningly frustrated, but all should approach these races as the curious and challenging puzzles they’ve become.

Remember that you could be taking an ‘0-fer’ well into Saturday and get it all back (and more) in the weekend’s waning moments. But no matter how the ledger looks when it’s over, appreciate that your ability …

33rd Breeders’ Cup ~ Saturday 11/5/16

There’s not a lot to say about what we were treated to Friday. Beholder and Songbird put in a display that will take it’s place among the great races of our lifetime. For Songbird, there will be other big moments, but for Beholder, this was the last moment. She was going to retire as an all time great no matter the outcome, but for B. Wayne Hughes and Richard Mandella and everyone that loves her, adding this final glory was a true fairy tale ending.

A raucously fun day Friday and got some nice pops out of good notions with the surfaces playing nice and even for everyone. The big multi tickets were unproductive as …
