A great run by Little Mike! He deserves the victory, holding off Point of Entry and St. Nicholas' Abbey in the manner that he did. Little Mike showed stamina throughout the race, grit and determination in the stretch. He has the heart of a champion.
Treasure beach\POE for the win with optimizer as long shot possibility

The more I handicap this race the more I'm convinced this year's BC Turf is St Nicholas Abbey's to lose. He hasn't looked particularly good in his last 3 or 4 races, but consider the circumstances. 2 of them were in races at 10f, and SNA has never been world class at 10f. The races where he's been defeated lately at 12f have been going right handed and largely over soft ground. Everything SNA needs to be seen at his best he'll have at Santa Anita on Saturday. The ground will be good bordering on firm, he's got a great PP draw, he's back at 12f, and most important of all he'll be racing left handed again. SNA has shown an electric turn of foot in his 12f races going left handed on firm turf, and he's got 2 G1 Coronation Cups and a G1 BC Turf to prove it. Box SNA in with Point of Entry and the Aga Khan filly, Shareta to complete the BC Turf tri-fecta and you're cooking with Crisco, IMO!!
I have heard or read several people saying Abbey isn't the same horse. I think the bog of the Arc isn't a fair guage and aside from that, I think Abbey has been in decent form. I have a feeling she may sneak a bit under the raydar and what should be a 3-1 or less horse, may get us 9/2 or 5/1 or higher. I will be using Abbey very liberally in all my pik wagers and vertical wagers.
