Post Breeders Cup 2017
I've handicapped Friday's BC races. I'm leaning towards these horses but things may change by post time.

Friday
--------

Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf - Significant Form / A typical Chad Brown beast with a monstrous late kick.

Las Vegas Breeders' Cup Dirt Mile - Cupid / I must say I like the looks of Cupid on paper. Appears to be hiding under the radar with two nice preps for this. You'll get a good price too.

Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf - Mendelssohn / Racing pattern suggests they have him primed for this. Ships into US off a recent run which is my preferred angle for UK shippers.

Longines Breeders' Cup Distaff - Elate / Has hit peak form running at the longest distances of her career. Very hard to go against.

I think if mor spirit is in the same form as when he won the met mile, there’s no way he can lose the dirt mile. I like catholic boy in the juvenile turf, looked really good last time, has a great turn of foot, although I think Mendelssohn and Masar havevrral good chances too. September for me in the fillies juvenile turf, so unlucky not to win the fillies mile and will like the ground more than happily I think, of the Americans I like rushing fall, she looks pretty nice. I agree with elate in the distaff, will be hard to beat stellar wind but I was very impressed by elate last time.

We don't hear anything in Oz about the Breeders Cup - most because the Spring Carnival ramps up big time this weekend.

If possible can you post up a link or two to the main race/s?

Be interesting to watch.

I don’t think they should run the breeders cup at del marvever again, horrible track for genuine races, a horses chances are not based on how good the horse is, particularly on the turf course

Post Re: Breeders Cup 2017
Its certainty a brilliant event but my god i may as well have been betting on the 2.00 at Wolverhampton on a Wednesday afternoon. Del Mar just isn't the track for a huge event like that. A beautiful course but no different to Chester really. It just seemed far to sharp for most European horses who didn't have the gate speed to grab a early position and that was game over really. Several horses could be granted unlucky losers flying up the short straight to finish in the placings.

Finally PJRhodes please please stop the boys running horses like Churchill on the dirt..

I didn't bet I rarely bet on the Breeders Cup but that track is not a Grade 1 Track I could run Greyhounds around that who ever made the decision should be shot I can see less European Horses going over if they run on Tracks Like that in the future.

Post Re: Breeders Cup 2017
I have to agree, I doubt I have seen a more beautiful track in the US, Del Mar is truly gorgeous, but that short stretch... they definitely shouldn't have extended the track inwardly making turns sharper (and the stretch even shorter I believe if my logic is correct?). It could have all easily been averted by expanding the track outward instead and by moving the finish line further down the track, special finish lines used to be used in bygone times (haven't heard of it being done in the US recently) but there is precedent for it at the least. These moves would have made a much fairer Breeders' Cup at Del Mar, the finish line one would have involved no real effort either.
