I forgot this was a holiday weekend and submitted my vote before Monday's races. We definitely have some variations in our Top 10, especially #6-10.
I think some of our tracks here in the U.S. should follow Woodbine's lead and implement some right-handed turf racing. We already see some of the best of Europe's runners, but imagine how many more we could potentially see stateside with the right incentive.
I'm not saying Arrogate can win, but in playing the devil's advocate here, I'd like to point out that at some point in time, most of the horses in the Classic field only had one stakes win to their name.
Regardless of whether or not she actually races in the Classic, not mentioning the possibility would be poor journalism on my part. Rumor or not, it's worth mentioning and discussing.
Matt, you think Found will go to the Classic over the Turf?
Since Lady Aurelia isn't likely to take home an Eclipse, I'm hoping for a Cartier instead.
It's not speculation. Several reputable sources (besides myself and HRN) have reported it. Off the top of my head, I remember seeing headlines from the Irish Times and Paulick Report as well as the Breeders' Cup website itself.
Personally, I think 2-YO Filly is Lady Aurelia's to lose.
The big difference between the AA and the PC is that Dortmund drew right alongside CC rather than drawing the far outside post. That'll make a huge difference at the break of the AA.
