Expert picks: Betting Breeders' Cup Saturday on a $100 bankroll

By Jarrod Horak, (@jchorak)

On Friday, I covered Breeders' Cup Day 1 with a $100 bankroll and I will use the same key horse method for my Saturday wagers. The most probable winner on the Saturday card is possible 2-year-old champion and early Kentucky Derby 2018 favorite Bolt d'Oro in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile (Race 10). 

#11 Bolt d'Oro is 3-for-3 and looked sensational in his romping Grade 1 FrontRunner victory on Sept. 30. He is 2-for-2 at Del Mar and wins this for fun if he runs back to his last. Post 11 is meaningless if he is as good as advertised. He could be even money or less, so I will skip the win wager and concentrate on exactas, trifectas, and superfectas.  

Other Juvenile Win Contenders: #2 Solomini#5 Free Drop Billy#6 Good Magic

Underneath: #3 Firenze Fire#8 Bahamian
