Breeders Cup Betting – Breeder’s Cup Lessons Saturday

Posted by Brian Mulligan on 11/6/2012 5:55:03 PM

Breeders’ Cup prices were all over the horse betting board on Saturday and it started with the 9-1 Euro George Vancouver, who split runners in the Juvenile Turf to inch away late. The runner was compromised most of the year but soft going and he clear enjoys to hear his feet rattle.

And again Aidan O’Brien proved he knows what it takes to get horses to win in this country.

A star was not exactly born, as she was freaky good already, but Groupie Doll stamped herself as the real deal taking the Filly and Mare Sprint drawing off for fun late. This miss bided her time early, took over at the top of the lane and the race was over.

Steve Asmussen has won a ton of races in his career and has watched his star Curlin win Horse of the Year honors but he looked like the cat that swallowed the canary after his trainee Tapizar upset in the Dirt Mile. Under an excellent ride by Corey Nakatani, this runner rebounded from a poor effort in the Kelso back East and the runner raised his record to 6 for 14 while paying $32 and change.

Rosie Napravnik became only the second woman; Julie Krone was the first, to win a BC race when she put up one tremendous rider about the chalk Shanghai Bobby. Because of Hurricane Sandy, his arrival in California was delayed a day and he had not trained in 3 days.

Rosie proved she knows her horse. The runner lost concentration once he made the lead Saturday and was looking around like he wanted to date somebody in the infield. Instead of panicking, Napravnik waited till horses came to Bobby knowing that he would re-engage and re-engage he did winning by a game head.

Bobby becomes the leader in the online betting clubhouse with a look to the Kentucky Derby and the discussion has already begun if he can handle the classic distance.

Those that have watched Jim Rome know he is never for a loss for words but that all changed when his runner Mizdirection came from 11th to take the Turf Sprint. She not only beat the boys, but the lesson she taught was that on the tricky hillside course at Anita, experience is key. She is now unbeaten in 3 starts on that course.

Little Mike did something in the Turf that many thought he could not do and that’s get a mile and a half. He got an ideal three-hole trip, relaxed perfectly, quickened to get the lead and held sway. Again, tactical speed will give runners a puncher’s chance more often than not.

The Sprint again proved to be a scramble as Trinniberg got a great ride from Willie Martinez to kick off a superfecta that was a life changer. The super came back nearly $55,000 and again, it is prove that this is a race to spread in.

Wise Dan made his case for Horse of the Year honors when he did what he does best in the Mile and that’s just win. What we also gleaned from this race is that trainer Graham Motion knows this game as he had Animal Kingdom run second off an extended layoff.

The appetizers were finished, the salad was off the table and now it was down to the meat and potatoes of the Classic. Nobody told Game on Dude is was time to eat as he threw in a clinker with a bit of trouble.

It opened up the barn door for Fort Larned to lull them to sleep on the front end and take them wire-to-wire at 9-1.

When the smoke cleared, the Pick Six paid nearly $420,000 and he fans went away treated.

It was a good sports betting show and the talk of the Triple Crown will soon be in the air.
