Betting Breeders Cup – Turf Sprint Preview

Posted by Brian Mulligan on 10/16/2012 6:27:39 PM

What: Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint Preview
Where: Santa Anita
When: Saturday, November 3

The accent will be on speed and a million-dollar purse will be on the line in the about 6 and a half-furlong Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint so don’t blink or it will be too late to capitalize.

The winner of this horse betting race last year, Regally Ready, came to Churchill Downs off a clever score in the Neartic at Woodbine going 6 furlongs on a yielding course and proceeded to come from slightly off the pace to post a winning 102 Beyer. 

If one of the entrants in this race has shown an affinity for this course, he demands an extra look. Traditionally, unless a runner has either commanding or very good tactical speed, the inside post can be extremely trecherous.

Runners that can stalk and even milers that are cutting back, have had good online betting success on the hillside over the decades. And the rider has to know the tendency of his rivals as time and time again, a jockey has sat on the rail 4 or 5 off the lead and then then the runners cross the dirt at the top of the lane, they tend to spread out and open up the fence. Beware of this style.

California Flag has been training like he is sharp as a tack right now.  Although this guy has :21 and change speed, he doesn’t absolutely need the lead to win and there is nothing wrong with style options in this game.

This runner is proven fresh, has trained fast for this including two best of the morning drills of late. His best asset may be the fact that he has won on this tricky hillside course in this very race in 2009.

Unbridled’s Note just made his turf debut on the hillside and came away with a clever win coming from 3 lengths off the pace to post a 92 winning Beyer in the Grade 3 Eddie D. This colt was already Grade 1 placed this year so there is class to draw from the pedigree.
Bridgetown just went to town winning the Woodford at Keeneland with a 99 Beyer. This guy invents ways to win as his 9 for 19 slate suggests and he brings :43 flat speed to the party. And  he is versatile in that he doesn’t absolutely need the lead to win.

A couple of likely longshots that are coming to the race extremely sharp must be considered in this race.

Great Attack, who is trained by Wesley Ward, also recently posted a 99 Beyer taking the Turf Sprint at Churchill, a Grade 1 event where this guy came from second to last. Attack will be in revenge mode as he was fourth in the BC Turf Sprint last year.

Ben’s Cat could be on the prowl too. This guy is a flat out win machine. This gelding has plied his trained back East all of his career and he has won 11 of his 16 turf starts and 18 of 27 starts overall.

Cat will bring an ideal stalk and pounce style to the online sports betting table.
The bottom line here for online sports players is to look for a runner that can be his own best friend, be fairly close to the pace, and then have the ability to quicken at will.
