Breeders’ Cup Countdown: The Friday Slate

We’re less than three weeks away from the 27th Breeders’ Cup, contested over two days at Churchill Downs on November 5th and 6th.  Each week leading up to it I’ll run down my top 5 in each division, which will be updated based on defections and different choices made by connections.  Here’s Part I, with Friday’s races as today’s focus.  Saturday’s races will be posted tomorrow.

MARATHON: 

1.) A. U. Miner – Greenwood Cup winner finished a game third at Hawthorne and should appreciate
the longer trip under the Twin Spires.


2.) Prince Will I Am – Jamaica winner could end up here and he can seemingly run all day.  Sire won the Belmont and he broke his maiden over this track.


3.) Bright Horizon – Coolmore shipper just won a 2 mile event at The Curragh.  How he’ll handle the dirt is a huge question mark.


4.) Eldaafer – 2009 Brooklyn winner scored at Turfway in September and is actually better on conventional dirt.


5.) Alcomo  – 2010 Brooklyn winner can run all day but will come in fresh as he hasn’t been seen since July.
