Breeders' Cup Day 2 selections
I missed day one, but here are my selections for day two. Horse-Races.net has links to free past performances for all Breeders' Cup races except for the Marathon.
I'll bet Zappa in the Marathon. There's very little early speed in this race. Zappa might be able to win it wire to wire, as he won the Cougar II Handicap at Del Mar in July.
I'll bet True to Tradition in the Turf Sprint.
Well Armed looks like a deserving favorite in the Dirt Mile which, despite its name, will actually be run on Pro-Ride.
Goldikova looks formidable in the Mile, but she's never raced on firm turf. I'll bet Daytona, who is 2 for 3 at the distance and is undefeated on the turf at Santa Anita.
I'll bet Square Eddie in the Juvenile. Square Eddie has won around two turns and appears to like syntetic tracks.
The undefeated Bittel Road looks like a deserving favorite in the Juvenile Turf.
I'll bet In Summation in the Sprint.
I'll bet Red Rocks in the Turf. Red Rocks won this race two years ago, and has run well in all of his previous North American starts.
Curlin loks like a deserving favorite in the Classic. the only question is whether he likes the Pro Ride surface.
