Saturday 2015 Breeders Cup race selections

Beginning the Saturday action is the BC Juvenile Fillies, a race on my Enlightened Derby Trail. The top 4 earn extra points in the Trail’s Heartland Division.  Top 3:
Rachel’s Valentina comes in with excellent breeding (Bernardini/Rachel Alexandra, by Medaglia D’Oro) 2 wins in 2 races at Saratoga, one of which was the Spinaway.   Layoff since that race should help immensely.  Prior stretch-out win, and good works entering, 4 in all, 3 at Keeneland, 2 of those 3 very fast. Slight concern of a bounce as she increase from 87 to 94.
Nickname won an 83k maiden race 2nd time in class,then won the Grade 1 Frizette at Belmont last time out 4 weeks ago. Paired up Brisnet speed figures in the 80, measured as fastest of the field by pace.Proven winner while stretching out, good work tab and prior shipping win.  As with Rachel’s Valentina, she was faster at the 2nd call.
Dothraki Queen has 2 wins (maiden, Alcibiad) and a 2nd (Pocahontas). Best track performance of this field,an 83. Turn time between those races was 24 seconds, impressive to contend, along with his drop in speed figure.
Suggested odds:  Rachel’s Valentina 6-5; Tap To It 29-1;Songbird 6-1; Dothraki Queen 5-1 (overlay)  Nickname 10-1  Not much value here, tho I don’t like favorite Songbird to factor.

Next is the 1000k Turf Sprint 5.5 furlongs for 3YO+. My top 3
Marchman is fresh off 2 month layoff and reclaim by Bret Calhoun.  Won the Turf Sprint at Churchill in May of 2014 and the Shakertown a month prior. Best track/surface/distance performance of the field coming from that race, 103 Brisnet. Robby Albarado was aboard for both those wins and he comes back to align again. Very capable of winning after coming out from route distance and having once exceed track par speed.

Jimmy Bouncer is a CA bred has 4 wins in 6. Impresses with :22 turn time, reclaimed by Doug O’Neill to start off the year.
Stacked Deck probably has had the toughest trip among non-winners coming in, a 99 Brisnet score and 3rd place in the Woodford here on 10/3. That score represents a small new recent top, only horse in the field to do so..nice advantage there.
Suggested odds: The Great War 29-1; Stacked Deck 7-2 (overlay); Marchman 6-5 (overlay); Jimmy Bouncer 3-1 (overlay)
The FILLY/MARE SPRINT is for 3YOs+,going 7 furlongs, 1000k.
Taris with strong AWD numbers (Flatter/Comedy out of Irish horse Theatrical; Best distance/track numbers of this field,winning the Raven Run here last with a sparkling 115, a 9-length win.  Fastest of field as measured by pace. Prior stretchout win, nice works coming in (2 at Santa Anita, both fast, one a bullet.); Stevens/Callaghan combo haven’t appeared yet during the meet.   Impressed me at first call with 103 Brisnet, much better than 88 Brisnet before this along with layoff.One of two who increased turn time while lowering speed figure.
The other horse in that category is my 2nd choice Super Majesty. 4-3-1-0 record,winner of the Dogwood last time out in September at Churchill.  Bounced to a 94 in that race. 5 works since then, 4 of 5 at Keeneland all fast, 1 with bullet.  Solis/Hollendorfer no experience this meet. Gained full second of turn time in the Dogwood.
Stonetastic won the Grade 2 Prioress last year. Comes out of a 40k allowance race winning by 15 at 6.5 furlongs 2 months ago at Parx,109 Brisnet.  Only horse in field to recently make small new lifetime top compared to 2014 races.   Prior win while going up in class, and her 2 month wait to stretch is longest of field Question mark about the 109 and if she will bounce from that.
Suggested odds: Taris 5-2 (overlay); Wavell Avenue 9-1; Stonetastic 3-1;  Dame Dorothy 14-1; La Verdad 14-1; Super Majesty 7-1; Room For Me 12-1
Another great race I’m totally ignoring the favorite (Cavorting) in.
FILLY/MARE TURF is 8.5 furlongs, 3YO+,2000k. Top 3:
Secret Gesture makes 3rd US start Prior races were across Western Europe at top level.Stateside she has won the Grade 1 Beverly D and last year’s version of this race at Santa Anita.   Prior winner straight off layoff, I rate her fastest of these based on available pace numbers (Brisnet doesn’t have pace parameters for horses racing outside North America, a shame)
Elektrum is one of the also-eligibles.Winner of the JC Mabee in August and a stakes race in France last year. One of two horses who recently forged a lifetime best mark. That was 2 races ago in the Mabee, a 98. After bouncing to 88 in the Rodeo Drive, I feel she can bounce back here well into the 90s.Best turn time gain and adjustment compared to Brisnet of this field.
Dacita is 10-7-1-1, and won her US debut at Saratoga last time out in the Ballston Spa,a 91 Brisnet score. Prior races were at Santiago in Chile.  Also has prior wins from layoff.  Best work tab of this field; 7 works in all, most of them on Belmont turf. Best turn time also at 23 seconds
If Elektrum does not make it to the show,I’ll add Legatissimo.She is 10-5-3-0 lifetime, and makes her US debut; all prior races in GB and Ireland at top level. Loses 6 lbs to 120, she has won in a prior adjustment. Brings back Ryan Moore as jockey, who won with this horse earlier in the year. Also owns shipping wins, and is a first time Lasix user for this race.
Suggested odds: Bawina 44-1; Sentiero Italia 7-1 (overlay); Talmada 44-1; Stephanie’s Kitten 3-1 (overlay); Elektrum 9-1 (overlay); Secret Gesture 3-1 (overlay); Legatissimo 8-1; Dacita 8-1
UPDATE: With the scratch of Elektrum, my top 3 are now Secret Gesture, Dacita, Legatissimo
BC SPRINT is 1500k race, 6 furlongs for 3YOs +     Top 3:
Kobe’s Back made 1 start here,winning the Grade 3 Commonwealth in April. I like the alternating pattern of Brisnet scores here and slight gain on leader last time out. 22 second turn time is best of the field.
Salutos Amigos is 32-10-3-4, a sharp 114 lifetime best at the distance.   Jose Ortiz won with him prior and is back aboard, tho nor he or trainer David Jacobsen have any record this meet.  Ran 2nd with a  104 Brisnet last timeout in the Vosburgh Invitational, overcoming a squeezed start.
Wild Dude I only really like for his great turn time and gain (22 seconds, up 2/5) between last 2 races.
Suggested odds:  Private Zone  2-1; Wild Dude 7-1; Big Macher 13-1 (overlay); Stallwalkin’ Dude 13-1; Salutos Amigos 17-1;  Kobe’s Back 5-1 (overlay); Runhappy 19-1; Masochistic 19-1.
BC MILE is for top 3YOs+, 2000k, Grade 1.
Top 3:
Mondialiste raced across Europe before making his American debut in September, winning the Woodbine Mile. earning a 97 Brisnet. Best breeding of the field (Galileo/Occupandise, 2 Irish horses, by Kaldoun,based in France). Prior win first off layoff.  Track bias may be in favor.  In 11 raceis70is70s, deep closer have won 3, and 11% wins are coming from posts 4 through 7.  23.3 turn time matches best of the field.
Mshawish has best works of the field, 3 here, 3 at the Spa, all very fast.  Wide trip running 5th in the Fourstardave last time out, but posted a 99, so maybe has a better trip here.
Impassable makes his US debut after 7 races in France, with 4 wins, the last 2 at Grade 2.   Lowest weight of the field at 120, and first time Lasix.   Maxime Guyon returns to ride; owns prior win in the Prix de Sandringham.
Suggested odds:
Mondialiste 5-2 (overlay); Mshawish 4-1 (overlay); Karakontie 7-1 (overlay); Grand Arch 4-1 (overlay) Impassable 4-1 (overlay)

Breeders Cup Juvenile is for top 2YOs going 8.5 furlongs, Grade 1, $2000k.

Nyquist undefeated in 4 races, winning at the distance last time in the Grade 1 Front Runner. Fastest horse as measured by overall Brisnet speed, and good close pattern of scores as well.  Each of his Graded victories, this plus the Del Mar Futurity and the Best Pal, saw Swipe finishing 2nd.
Greenpointcrusader won an 83k maiden race at Saratoga, then took the Grade 1 Champagne at Belmont on 10/3, 97 Brisnet.  May benefit from track bias: Deep closers at this distance have won 11 of the 36 races here, 31%. 7 races have been won from the first three posts.
Cocked and Loaded is my overlay pick. Winner of the Iroquois at Churchill at this distance, as well as the Tremont at Belmont.  1 prior win first off layoff. 4 works since the Iroquois, 2 of them very fast, 1 a bullet.
Suggested odds: Waterloo Bridge 11-1 (overlay); Unbridled Outlaw 7-1 (overlay); Nyquist 6-1; Brody’s Cause 14-1; Cocked & Loaded 6-1 (overlay); Greenpointcrusader 6-1; Isotherm 10-1 (overlay); Ralis 11-1.
BC TURF is run at the classic 12-furlong distance.  3000k  for 3YO+
Cape Fighter recently posted small new lifetime best of 100, nearly wiring the Knickerbocker Stakes field at Belmont 3 weeks ago. Only early-presser pacer in the field, so he’ll have command of the backstretch.   Turn time of 23.4 is best of the field, along with the 1.6 second gain from previous race. Hasn’t been out of the top 4 in some time.  He should not be 34-1 like last time.
Big John B has won 14 out of 34 lifetime including 3 straight. Prior winner first off layoff. Also has won with a similar noticeable weight gain, and is waiting the longest among those stretching out.
Ordak Dan, another longshot I like here, makes his US debut after years of racing in his native Argentina vs top competition. I’m mainly sold on his workouts. Off since May, he’s got 5 in all, 3 here, one a bullet. Also is a first-time gelding.
Suggested odds: Found 44-1; Slumber 44-1; Twilight Eclipse 17-1; Big Blue Kitten 17-1; Red Rifle 9-1; Cage Fighter 5-2 (overlay); Big John B 3-1 (overlay); Da Big Hoss 44-1; The Pizza Man 44-1; Ordak Dan 5-1 (overlay)

BC CLASSIC won’t have Beholder or Smooth Roller but it will have 8 other challengers, including American Pharoah, in the Triple Crown winner’s final race. 5000k at stake for this 10 furlong race of champions.

Keen Ice won the Travers after having mixed results in Graded stakes going back to a year ago.  He’s the lone early closer, so watch him at the far turn and early stretch.  Tripled up in Brisnet scores last 3 races…have to wonder if he’s subject to bounce here.   Also, best turn time of 23.2 and gain (1.2 seconds) from prior race

American Pharoah truly has nothing left to prove.   Finished 2nd to Keen Ice in the Travers, and I see that result here again.   Only horse in field to win first after layoff; fastest of these as measured by his early-pressure pace.   Best works coming in; all 6 of them at Santa Anita, 4 very fast, 1 a bullet .

Honor Code always a threat: 10-6-2-1 record, with wins in the Whitney, the Metropolitan and the Gulfstream Park Handicap.  Ran 101 in the Kelso a month ago with a lot of trouble, both at the gate and running 5 wide.   His performance in the Kelso is better at 2nd call as compared to prior, a good sign for horse 1 race after layoff. Also is one of two who had recently bounced.
Suggested odds: Gleneagles 44-1;Honor Code 9-1Tonalist 8-1; Effinex 22-1; Hard Aces 22-1 (overlay); American Pharoah 12-1; Keen Ice 3-1 (overlay); Frosted 9-1.

Breeders Cup 2015 (Friday) selections/analysis

The big weekend, Breeders Cup Weekend, has arrived at least. In this post I’ll give you analysis and selections of my top 3 choices for the 4 Friday races, plus suggested odds. On my Clammr feed you’ll hear my top choice and suggested odds for my picks among each field. www.clammr.com/app/user/27316
BREEDERS CUP JUVENILE TURF is a mile race for 2YO colts/geldings, Grade 1, $2000K.  15 in the field, Shiek of Shieks the one also-eligible to drop in in the event of a scratch.   Here’s my top 3:
Hollywood Don shines with pace form here. 3 races on the Del Mar turf course, breaking maiden, then peaking to 94 in the Del Mar Juvenile Turf, then stretch to 8.5 furlongs while switching to dirt in the Grade 1 Front Runner..finished 3rd there. Back to a mile and turf here, 2 wins at the distance with the 94 Brisnet score, bounced to an 88 in the Front Runner. I’m playing the bounceback angle here at good price.
Airoforce won both lifetime starts, 6 furlongs here at nearby Kentucky Downs and 8.5 furlongs here at Keeneland, that on yielding turf. Track and turf speed of 92 in the Grade 3 Bourbon last time out is the best of this field.Paired with his debut of 95 Brisnet he’s easily the speed of the field.
Conquest Daddyo won the Summer Stakes with a 94 Brisnet at Woodbine, good for 250 points in the East Coast division. Prior to that, he was 2nd in the restricted Vandal Stakes, and a 56k maiden win, both at Woodbine also.   The 94 Brisnet is the best for the distance of the field. On 7 week layoff and having won his debut, he is very capable of winning today. Very good worktab, with 3 works at Keeneland during layoff.
Suggested odds: Shogun 29-1; Sky Marshal 29-1; Conquest Daddyo 4-1 (overlay); Hollywood Don 9-1; Airoforce 7-1; Manhattan Dan 10-1 (overlay); Azar 10-1; Highland Sky 8-1 (overlay); Ray’s The Bar 10-1 (overlay); Hit It A Bomb 8-1.
Lots of value in this race where the morning line fave Cymric is 7/2 and nowhere in my plans. Airoforce should do well among the low-price choices. A number of directions to go in between the overlays.

LAS VEGAS BREEDERS CUP DIRT MILE is for 3YO+s, Grade 1, 1000k.
Liam’s Map deserves the top slot here. 1/1 morning line pick has 5 wins and 2 2nd lifetime. Wins include the Woodward and Harlan’s Holiday.  3 wins in 3 route starts, peaking at 105 in the Harlan’s Holiday, best of this field.Only horse to recently forge and set a new small top, referring to his 109 in the Whitney. Prior winner while cutting back in distance, as well as with weight gain . You have to love a horse with 5 straight triple-digit Brisnets. Even with slight drop to 106 in the Woodward, he gained in turn time from 25:2 to 23:4.
Lea won the HalHope twice and the Donn Handicap at Gulfstream. Best pedigree of the field (First Samurai/Greenery, out of Irish horse Galileo). Prior winner off layoff. Ony horse in field to win at similar stage of Keeneland of this field.  Also has prior wins from gain in weight.   Gained 2 full seconds in turn time from last race.
Bradester mainly races in Monmouth.Winner of the Ack Ack, the Salvatore Mile and the Monmouth Cup.Prior wins off layoff, Best works of the field;5 of them during layoff, 3 bullet works, 2 at Keeneland

Suggested odds: Red Vine 11-1; Bradester 8-1; Lea 4-1 (overlay); Street Strategy 22-1 (overlay);  Liam’s Map 2-1; Valid 7-1; War Story 18-1 (overlay); Mr. Z 14-1 (overlay)
Another race with overlay but I actually like the big fave on top. Still enough value underneath to play with other pools in.
Next is the JUVENILE FILLIES TURF, one mile for top 2YO fillies,Grade 1, 1000K.
Ruby Notion 3 wins in 4 races, the only blemish a 5th place finish in her lone race overseas and her turf debut. Won the Colleen and Selima Stakes. Forged sharp lifetime best of 94 last time out, but high risk of bounce. Only filly here to win while gain in class. Has prior win with stretch out (today from 5.5 furlongs). Brings back Rafael Herndandez, who has been aboard 2 of her 3 wins.   Loses blinkers for this race.  Waiting the longest to stretch out. Fine work tab: 3 works at Keeneland, 2 very fast, 1 bullet.
Harmonize is the lukewarm 7-2 morning line choice.  2 wins and 1 second lifetime; won the Jessamen (Grade 3) right here and PG Johnson. Both races gave him paired up Brisnets in the 90s. 90 is best at Keeneland of this field.  Best speed of the field as measured by overall Brisnet scores. Only early-presser horse of the field.
Catch A Glimpse 2 wins in 3 lifetime including the Grade 2 Natalma last time out, with a dazzling 98 Brisnet, and 250 EDT points for that effort.  The 98 is best of the distance and surface in the field.  4 works during layoff, 3 of them here, 2 of the early works very fast.  Real risk of bounce as the par speed figure for the distance is 95. I usually go the other way if a horse spikes beyond this
Suggested odds:Ruby Notion 4-5 (overlay); Alice Springs 29-1; Sapphire Kitten 29-1; Catch A Glimpse 7-1; Harmonize 3-1    I love seeing Ruby Notion in this spot for the win; enough value to go around using the weak favorite
here.
EOT impact: Nemoralia enters with 100 points out of the East Coast division.
LONGINES BC DISTAFF is for top 3YO+ fillies/mares going 9 furlongs, 2000k. Top 3:
Wedding Toast has had a dazzling career, winning the Comely, the Miami Shores,the Ruffian, the Ogden Phipps and the Beldame.  8 wins in 12 starts, just one out of the money. With a 97 in the Madison, then up to 103 in the Ruffian, 104 in the OPhillps then down to 99 in the Beldame, I’d believe shed rise again for this race.  Fastest of the field as measured by overall Brisnets, not to mention the low variance of scores. Nice turn time as well, 24 seconds.
I’m A Chatterbox won the Silverbulletday,, the Fair Grounds Oaks, the Rachel Alexandra, the Cotillion, and the Coaching Club American Oaks.  2 races removed from her lifetime best of 99. Prior win while stretching out, along with prior shipping wins and her maiden win over this track last year.
Gained 1/5 turn time between last 2 races while losing 2 points in Brisnet.
Peace And War draws into the field as also-eligible and I’m hoping she will, as she does have good stats. With trainer Graham Motion, she’s become a different filly than before with Brisnets in the 90s.  Also has shipping wins, won the Alcibiad here a year ago too. 3rd in the Cotillion, and gained slightly at 2nd call than prior race…so she may be in great form here.
Should Peace and War not draw in, I have Stellar Wind for 3rd. 5 wins in 7 races, include the Torrey Pines, the Summer Oaks, the Santa Ysabel and the Santa Anita Oaks.  2 straight wins off layoff, and prior stretch-out win. Waiting since August 30 to stretch out.  Only concern is that the Espinoza/Sadler connection hasn’t run during this meet yet.
Suggested odds: Got Lucky 29-1, Frivolous 29-1,Untapable 14-1, Stopchargingmaria 6-1, Yahilwa 4-1 (overlay); Wedding Toast 3-1; I’m A Chatterbox 11-1; Stellar Wind 11-1; Peace And War 11-1 (overlay).
Another excellent race. My top pick actually morning-line favorite at 4-1, so value might be a premium.
That’s enough for now.  Tomorrow I’m recording the latest IS podcast and will present thoughts on all 13 races.

Ranking the top MLB classic games (initial study complete)

I’ve completed both phases of my ‘classic’ MLB games study. I’ve changed the name from ‘greatest’ because of a certain level of subjectivity.  Truly a game can be great, but saying one is classic is one that gets talked about for ages, even if just among a team or their hardcore fans.    293 games in the regular season and 84 in the postseason all met these 2 standards: combined Pitching Game Score of 150, and average Leverage Index of 3.00.  4 out of every 5 games were extra-inning affairs, and virtually all were strong pitcher duels with low scoring.   I’ve yet to understand the blank from the 90’s to the 2000’s where no regular season games qualified.  That will be the subject of a future mini-study. I’ll also get into team rivalries and other such circumstances.
When you examine the attached spreadsheet, you’ll see some numbers in bold. Those games involved the top 25 in either variable. I am outlining 3 games here in particular, plus one that went the conventional 9 frames.
9/21/45: Detroit and Philadelphia finish at dusk after 24 innings, tied at 1.
9/13/69  Braves and Astros score all their runs in the 13th, with Bob Aspromonte delivering a walk-off walk.
9/27/74: Orioles defeat Brewers 1-0 in 17. Great pitching duel between Jim Colborn and Jim Palmer. Bobby Grich scores on a fielders choice with bases loaded.
8/13/76 ranks as the best 9-inning game with no peer.  Rangers defeat Indians 2-1, as Jim Umbarger outduels Dennis Eckersley. Toby Harrah comes through twice in the game for each run.  Umbarger would pitch in the 1981 Pawtucket Red Sox game that went 33 innings. He pitched 10 innings of shutout baseball in that true classic.
To be fair, every one of the games in the spreadsheet is a classic. My aim to separate the lower-case classic from upper-case is just about accomplished.

As for the postseason, the Jack Morris 10-shutout game with the Gene Larkin finish won out as the only game to hit the top 10 on either side, making it the most classic of playoff games.

Enlightened Trails update(Northlands Park)

The Enlightened Trails return this week,up north of the 48 to Edmonton, Alberta  and Northlands Park, within the Minor divisions
The Freedom Of The City Stakes involves 2YO fillies going 1 mile, with 50k at stake.  Here’s my top 3:
Bootleggers Wife is a staggering 1/2 morning line favorite and impossible to rule out of the top spot for me. 3 races here, all winners, and none very close, the latter two also against fillies at the same level.  Only big difference is that she moves from sprints to routes. She was on layoff since 9/4; appears to be the best speed based on overall figures and close ones at that to each other. 3 works during the layoff also.
Raise a Dancer is a worthy value pick.  2 wins in 4 races, winning a 20k claimer, then 2nd in the Bird of Pay last time before layoff. Paired up Brisnet scores in the 70s for 2 lifetime bests. One of 2 horses (Bootlegger’s Wife the other) to win after gain in distance. Convincing work tab, including a bullet in 4 furlongs last time.  Also waiting since 9/4 to stretch. Turn time from last race is as strong as the big fave.
Image Of Perfection may hit as a longshot.2 wins in 4, a 12k claimer, wiring a field of 6 here over 6 furlongs just 6 days ago, then got claimed. Best breeding of the field (Cowtown Cat/Heaven Sent by Halo’s Image). This sprinter has best early fractions and best for pace overall in the field.  Big dark horse
Suggested odds Bootlegger’s Wife 1-1. Image Of Perfection (overlay) and Raise a Dancer 5-1. Leena: 29-1.
If odds form holds, Bootlegger’s Wife may only be best to play with my value and overlay choices, those other 2 being fair win bets.  Should be level playing field as track bias not too kind to outside posts.
Saturday’s race there is the Canadian Juvenile, special weigh stakes for 2YOs, going 1 mile, also 50k.  Top3:
Victory Day  in the money all 4 races, winner of last 2, state maiden 16k level, and the Alberta Premier Futurity.  Paired up Brisnet scores in 70’s in those wins.  Track bias is kind to sprinters here. Waiting longest of these to stretch out, 5 weeks. Prior win while stretching out too.  2 great workouts out of 3 since last, including 1 bullet.
After him it is very difficult to separate 5 horses for two more spots.   Here’s what I have as the best of the rest:
Perfect Gent is dangerous as the lone closer of this 10 horse field. Never mind that he’s got one podium finish in 4 races. Impressive pedigree here, son of Irish horse, Perfect Soul,a champion turf horse in Canada, by Sadler’s Wells.
Ready Intaglio comes out of both his maiden breaker and an allowance race, 2 wins where he sets big lifetime numbers in the 80s. Seems to be fastest here as measured by overall Brisnets. Had a tough trip last time out, tho remained in contention. I’m willing to forgive that trip here.
Suggested odds:
Awesome Slate 6-1; Perfect Gent 11-1 (overlay); Ready Intaglio 11-1; Ripple 4-1 (overlay); Autumn Song 14-1; Schramson 14-1; Victory Day 3-1
Victory Day is 3rd in morning-line, so slight possibility of this race being rather attractive, as I’m not factoring in big fave Awesome Slate at all.  And then there are the 2 overlays to consider.
