Can We Beat the Euros?

Each year, it seems the Breeders’ Cup Turf (gr. IT) paints the same bleak picture for the American grass horses. Whether it’s Conduit, who captured the last two BC Turfs, or the 10-1 Red Rocks in 2006, or the 1,2,3,4 Euro blitz in 2005, the Americans have had a tough time defending their home turf.

Difficult, but not impossible. Goldikova is still on top of her game. But she has lost a step from her 2008 and 2009 Breeders Cup Mile-Turf victories. I think the 2010 B.C. Mile-Turf will prove to be Goldikova at her most vulnerable in any of her three attempts. If Sidney's Candy run's the 8 furlongs of the B.C. Mile anything at all like he ran the 8-1/2 furlongs of the La Jolla Handicap, setting a new Del Mar turf course record for 8-1/2 furlongs in his only lifetime start on turf, I think he has a big chance. He ran those 8-1/2 furlongs like he was in a 6 furlong sprint race. Also, if the Court Vision that showed up and won the 2010 Woodbine Mile run's that well in the B.C.Mile-Turf? He's got a very realistic chance at beating the Euro's as well. I'd say the Euro's have an advantage. But America does have a couple of turf mile contenders in Sidney's Candy and Court Vision that are more than capable of springing the upset. JMO.
