This is one race where I would hit "All" in any Pick (4,5,6) bets.
Strange that Include Me Out has been excluded from your latest poll. I still think she has a tremendous chance in the Ladies Classic. With the likes of Questing, Love And Pride, and Awesome Feather all going to the front, the race could set up nicely if Include Me Out can track the leaders. Though it may not seem like much, 9 furlongs is a different ballgame than 8.5 and I think Include Me Out will fire her A race in the Ladies Classic. There's no better setting than the Breeders Cup to find a bargain price on a horse, and 12-1 on Include Me Out is far more than a bargain, it's a steal!
im sticking with Questing
I'll take My Miss Aurelia at 6-1!
Watched the Zenyatta a few times & still think Amani can compete at a huge price. It was a speed favoring track & a super slow pace, everything was going against her. Top contenders shouldn't be taken lightly, but if it stays like this that pace will be real hot & Amani is one who could fatten up all exotics.
