Seems like Turbulent Descent in the F&M Sprint is the most locked down of them all.
top 3 in the breeders cup classic will be havre mo and flat out..
Hands down, Flat Out
I just hope that it does rain for the BC meet. Rain changes so many element.
yes. A very classy filly.
...and I love her chances!
Sarafina just confirmed on Racing Post for the BC Turf!
Won a lot of money on Flat Out over the years, Jasen ... and I know you like him too. Thinking the race will set up well for him.
The over is a lock!!!I'm in agreement on 6 of them....I love Stacelita & Finale! I'm also with you on Turbulent Decent, Goldikova, & Jackson Bend. Finally, Flat Out? Please tell me I swayed you a little bit in that pick. =)
Hey, who else has early BC picks? Brian, we did have 5 picks in common. Will any of them win?
Solid, AS ... I have a few more longshots in there, but let's see who has more winners ... apparently zxswordxz likes your chances ;-)
Hi Andy....I like your list more....:-)
Here is my 15, unlike Zipse I make no guarantees. C-Uncle Mo, LC-Plum Pretty, Turf-St. Nick Abbey, FMTurf-Stacelita, Mile-Strong Surf, Dirt Mile-Jacksons Bend, Spr-Euroears, TSprint-Ben's Cat, FMSprint-Turbulent Descent, Juv-Union Rags, JuvTurf-Dullahan, JuvFillies-My Miss Aurelia, JFTurf- Elusive Kate, JuvSprint-Secret Circle, Mar-Cease
It's a one-turn race at Churchill, but The Factor is supposedly headed for the Sprint, not the Dirt Mile.
I forget but do they run the Mile out of the chute or wire to wire at Churchill? Out of the Chute, I'd go with The Factor if he goes but Jackson Bend definitely has a shot and wouldn't surprise me at all. but I think the whole scape changes if its a wire to wire (2 turn) mile
Thank you ... Jennifer, he has run twice since we saw him. The first was an impressive stakes win in Iowa before a layoff. He came back with a 3rd at Remimngton with a wide trip. Love him as a longshot!
I definitely remember Jake Mo! Has he really not run since June?
Wow, you are ambitious! I'm still holding out hope they'll run Winter Memories in the Mile of F&M Turf. I like your Mile, Dirt Mile, F&M Sprint, Juvenile and F&M Turf selections.
If anyone can pick winners 22 days early it is Zipse!
