Zensational looms large

Zensational wins the Triple Bend at Hollywood Park
Zensational may be out of sight, but he's certainly not out of the minds of the connections of any other horse with designs on this year's Breeders' Cup Sprint.

Zensational, who is expected to be the odds-on favorite to win the Sprint, has not started since capturing Del Mar's Grade 1 Pat O'Brien on Sept. 6, The victory was the fourth in a row for Zensational, who has not been defeated at distances of seven furlongs or shorter over artificial surfaces in five starts, including his maiden win over the Pro-Ride surface at Santa Anita earlier this winter.

Well... I think Zensational is a bet against to be honest. He'll (hopefully) face some real pace pressure when entries are drawn, something he's never seen before, and is a totally different ballgame than freewheeling on the lead.
I agree with your assessment completely. With apologies to Quality Road fans, I have always viewed Quality Road as an imposter much like Chocolate Candy and Pioneerof the Nile...quality horses but not top tier. Zensational will be the most difficult favorite to beat in the Sprint. Look for more analysis on our www.bcdashboard.com in the coming days.
I have seen other's comments on different web sites saying that Quality Road, because of his impressive track record in the Amsterdam St. at 6-1/2 furlongs should run in the Sprint against Zensational. Quality Road has a second and a third in his last 2 starts, both on muddy tracks. Pletcher know that if he takes to the synthetics that Quality Road, on a dry track could be sitting on a big race. He's going to go for the big payday with Q.R. imo. Zentational has really came into his own at this distance and looks nearly unbeatable. I think even at the Sprint distance it would be difficult for Quality Road to beat Zensational.
