Retired and bred to Street Cry this year
Short and sweet, and simply stated, Informed Decision is the second best mare in American racing today. Behind only the great and legendary Zenyatta. I love this mare. She has a ton of talent, and is always difficult to beat in any race that she's in. She really is blessed with great ability. I look forward to seeing her race as well in the 2010 racing season. This is a mare that rarely loses, and if she is beaten, almost certainly is never off of the board. JMO.
I really feel that Informed Decision gave one of the better performances of the Breeders Cup. No doubt, Zenyatta took the top honors for the weekend, and probably Godikova and Conduit repeating in their divisions would be next, but of the Friday races especially I thought Informed Decsion looked great. She broke well, settled in, and coming by with the close up of her and Julien Leperoux sitting aboard just stone faced. They both exuded confidence and she just looked like a horse that wasn't going to be beaten on that day. And Ventura makes for a very tough foe to take a title from.
Nice hit! She definitely seemed more likely to run well versus Forever Together.
I bet Informed Decision to win the Breeders Cup F&M Sprint. I had her on a $10 to win ticket which paid $44. Not a big haul, but it was the first race that I bet on in Friday's card. I just felt that on the pro-ride that Informed Decision was the horse to beat, now 7 for 7 lifetime on the surface. I think Ventura is an awesome filly, equally as talented, but on the pro-ride surface I did and most likely would always give Informed Decision the edge. From the time she broke, and the close up shot of Leperiox's face aboard her, they both just exuded confidence as if this was a horse that wasn't going to be beaten on that day.
Having won 5 of her last 6 races with 1 third, this is definitely the horse to beat Friday in the F&M Sprint. I know many think Ventura is the horse to beat, but given that the race is on synthetics and Informed Decision is a synthetics specialist, I'd have to give her the nod in this race. I think she's coming in fit, confident, and ready to run. It will take a huge race from Ventura to beat Informed Decision, imo.
Of all the Breeders Cup races that will be ran on Friday, Nov.6th, this is the one race that I have a hunch we're going to see something special. Informed Decision really seems to just keep getting better and better in each race. She's 6 for 6 lifetime on this surface, and given her recent form and racing triumph's, I just don't see her losing this race. From 2008 to present day, she has 13 starts with 10 wins and 2 third's. She just seem's to have hit her best stride at the right time. I don't, however, think that the race will be a cake walk for Informed Decision. I thoroughly expect Ventura, a great filly herself, to bring her "A" game to town and give Informed Decision a rough go of it. But in the end, I really think Informed Decision prevails in this race and goes home 2009 Breeders Cup F&M Sprint champion.
Having won 5 of her las 6, Informed Decision has really gelled at the right time, and being a synthetic track specialist, is, to me, the clear choice to win the B.C. Filly & Mare Sprint. I do however, expect a very stiff challenge from Ventura for her in this race. But when all is said and done, Informed Decision wins.
Informed Decision loves the fake dirt though. All of her higher rated performances were on synths not conventional dirt. So, I wasn't too surprised by her inability to win... but I was surprised by the winner's performance and the lack of fight from Indian Blessing. Dubai travel takes its toll again!
Was a bit surprised to see her get beat in the Ballerina by Music Note - and Indian Blessing finished ahead of her, too. Going into the race, she had been a perfect 3 for 3 in 2009.
