Breeders Cup 2015

There is a rain forecast this coming weekend. If the rain does continue through next week (but stop on BC day), we may have a semi off track like what we saw earlier this year at the Santa Anita Handicap.
From the AtTheRaces.com web-site: Trainer Aidan O'Brien has confirmed that first preference for Arc heroine Found at this year's Breeders Cup will be in the Breeders Cup Classic. Highland Reel was also included in the 14-strong pre-entry for this year's Classic, but O'Brien said to no surprise that he'll likely run in the Breeders Cup Turf instead. I assume the pre-entry of Highland Reel into the Classic field is just to give Coolmore an extra "standby" option in the race should something unforeseen go wrong to where Found wasn't able to contest the race.
Also from today's AtTheRaces.com web-site: Trainer David O'Meara announces that this year's G1 Arlington Million winner, Mondialiste, will likely run in the G1 Breeders Cup Turf in preference to contesting the Breeders Cup Mile for a second year in a row.

That is just too much for me to handle. I will ALWAYS REMEMBER YOU CAVORTING, The BEST FEMALE horse in the world SINCE ZENYATTA

  • sczen50 · I agree with you Thirsty! Yeah; since Zenyatta? Top 10 for sure. · 3 hours ago
How frustrating. Cavorting had shapen up to be a beautiful horse, and I was really looking forward to watching her run in the Breeders Cup. I hope she enjoys life as a broodmare. At least she's still at Stonestreet,
  • sczen50 · Yes Katie! Very frustrating! I honestly believe should would have made a dent in the top 3 in the Cup! Maybe even two of them. But now we'll never know. :( But at least she's doing okay now. Her health biggest concern. · 3 hours ago
Looks like the Turf Mile is his first preference, but he needs to draw in. Hope he does, much better shot there in my opinion, as opposed to the Dirt Mile, even with the Dirt Mile coming up lighter, just don't like that spot for him.
Would have to think he would go to the Dirt Mile? I hope so at least. He has a huge shot in that race turning back, where he has literally no shot in the Classic. 1 1/8 mile seems like his limit.
Although pre-entered, it doesn't look like Acapulco will get into the Breeder's Cup Turf Sprint. Does anyone know how the selection committee picks who gets in amongst the pre-entered besides the win and you're in races? Acapulco is likely 20th on the list and I'd pick her as the favorite. What a disappointment if she doesn't get in to have only an allowance race at turfway park and a $60k stakes race at Churchill for her 2016 campaign after winning at Ascot last year. Is Wesley kicking himself for at least not one prep?
Do you know what are the best career final fractions of each horse's competition in mile and a quarter races? California Chrome - 24.44 2016 Pacific Classic. Career in 1 1/4 Mile Races: 6 Starts 4-1-1-0. Fastest 1 1/4 Mile Time: 1:59.93 (calculated) – 2014 BCC. Melatonin - 24.27 2016 Gold Cup race at Santa Anita. Career in 1 1/4 Mile Races: 2 Starts 2-0-0-0. Fastest 1 1/4 Mile Time: 1:59.79 – 2016 Gold Cup at Santa Anita. Beholder - 24.65 2015 Pacific Classic. Career in 1 1/4 Mile Races: 1 Starts 1-1-0-0. Fastest 1 1/4 Mile Time: 1:59.77 – 2015 Pacific Classic. Arrogate - 23.84 set a Travers Stakes & Saratoga track record. Career in 1 1/4 Mile Races: 1 Starts 1-0-0-0. Fastest 1 1/4 Mile Time: 1:59.36 – 2016 Travers Stakes. Wish Beholder was racing in this year's BCC. She would definitely beat some of the boys.

  • sczen50 · Chrome's in the Pacific could've been wayyy faster! I agree that Beholder wish she was in. Oh, darn right she could beat some of these boys. Dortmind could beat some of these guys. · 5 hours ago
It is highly IMPROBABLE if not impossible, to compare "pressed" segmental velocity times to "alone on the lead" times. Many a horse, all by itself, run like tigers only to falter when battling through those first 4 furlongs. Before you can support a horse that is a front runner (like Affirmed for example or Lady's Secret) is to watch and compare the fractions the animal OVERCAME to get that lead. Once they show that (i.e. War Emblem was an example who needed to be alone on the lead or he faltered) adaptability, you can project, but the need to lead animals have a large Achilles Heel.

She is incredible. Winning G1s from 7 furlongs to 10 furlongs this year. Wow.

Looks like rain this weekend to Art is moving up Chrome's workout to Thursday before shipping to Santa Anita this weekend. Keep up the good work Chrome and we'll see you in the winner's circle! :)
