Horse Racing Betting – Filly and Mare Turf Preview

Posted by Brian Mulligan on 10/9/2012 6:58:43 PM

What: Filly and Mare Turf Preview
Where: Santa Anita
When: Friday, November 2

The top long-fused ladies on the planet will square off at the classic distance of a mile and quarter on the grass in the $2 million Filly and Mare Turf and online betting fans should expect a hotly-contested event with emphasis on some sharp American runners and the recent second beaten only a neck in the Group 1 Yorkshire Oaks in The Fugue.

John Gosden, who had great success in California years ago, will saddle The Fugue, who did something you don’t see everyday and that’s break her maiden in a Group 1 race. The Fugue was also flattered when a horse she crushed came back to win the Flower Bowl.

Gosden also will be bringing the second in the Group 1 at Deauville in Izzi Top.
Again, a couple of Western runners should be prominent as Lady of Shamrock beat Grade 1 foes in the Del Mar Oaks and Quiet Oasis proved best in the Grade 2 Royal Heroine.

Marketing Mix will also be a serious threat. She is fresh from a cleve win in the Grade 1 Rodeo Drive and she posted a solid 98 Beyer that day for trainer Tom Proctor.
Several hard knocking Easterns incluuding Hungry Island and Tapitsfly can not be underestimated.

The Flower Bowl, which was run recently at Belmont, may go a long way in positioning these contenders on BC Day.

It was a roughly run online horse betting race and Zagora had the lead turning for the wire but she could not hold off the rally of Nahrain with Dream Peace completing the trifecta.
Nahrain ran her record to 5 for 9 career and she is no stranger to the big stage as she was second in this very race last year at Churchill. On that day Nahrain was the runner that had the lead at the top of the drive but could not hold off  Perfect Shirl.

Nahrain has plenty of back class as she won a Grade 1 last October and she showed signs of life in her Ireland finale, then put it all together in New York. She figures to be a handful.

Zagora may have moved a bit prematurely in the Flower Bowl but she is consistent and classy.

She was only beaten a half at a mile and a quarter on grass in a Grade 2 last year, has run well at a number of different venues and should take the the Anita course.

Dream Peace and Zagora are both trained by Chad Brown and both are players. Can’t fault those that give Peace a chance.

She was hung wide in her 2nd start of 2012 but has not raced thrice with Lasix and has run huge every single time with that addition.

I’m a Dreamer is consistent and will be dangerous. The horse that beat her only a half length in July won her next start in a Group 3 in Ireland.

Dreamer has won at Newmarket, run well at Woodbine, cashed in Chicago in the Beverly D and has a right to take the California sunshine. Coming to the Cup lightly raced is probably a good thing for this gal and any miss that has had a light campaign. You can’t squeeze the sports betting lemon dry in this sport.
