SANTA ANITA

BREEDERS’ CUP FRIDAY

Race 1

No.3 Segway exits our HTW list off a horrible trip last time out off the layoff. He will go better today. No.4 Big Bane Theory won his last start when exiting our HTW list and fits with these. No.6 Saint Loup is in from France for trainer Julio Canani. This colt looks to have some class about him and gets top NY jock Javier Castellano. No.9 Swift Eagle got good at Del Mar and has been working very good. This is a very wide open race. 3-4-6-9

Race 2

No.5 Warren’s Amber has won two of her four starts here. Bejarano takes his shot aboard No.9 Magical Band who just may offer a good betting price. 5-9

Race 3

No.2 Plenny of Henny never got the pace to run in his last start. He likes this course and will get the pace today at what will be a nice price and he exits our HTW list. No.4 Seven Bridges is on the improve and will like this 7 furlong distance. No.6 Northern Iowa also exits our HTW list and gets Bejarano in the irons for trainer Cerin who is having a good meet. No.8 Sir Allison showed a new dimension in his last start when coming from the back of the pack making a six wide run to get the big win. 2-4-6-8

Race 4

THE 500K BC Juvenile Sprint

No.7 Sweet Shirley Mae comes off a good second in the Grade 1 Spinaway at Saratoga. She gets Rosario today and he will sit right off the hot pace set by several in here including No.3 Merit Man. There is no telling how good No.5 Super Ninety Nine is as Baffert moves her in with Grade 1 company after the maiden breaker in his first start. We will opt for the filly to beat the boys in the sprint and key on Shirley Mae. 7 with 3-5

Key exacta box 7 with 3-5 and 3-5 with 7

Race 5

THE 500K BC MARATHON

The great one trainer Aidan O’Brien ships in the very consistent 6yo No.2 Fame and Glory who is the one to beat. No.11 Commander will be out winging it looking for his 7th straight win. No.12 Worth Repeating has the home field advantage and will be tracking the Commander. No.8 Romp who is 30/1 on the morning line will be the long shot play in here. 2-8-11-12

No.2 win and place and a tri key 2 with 8-11-12

Race 6

THE 1 MILLION BC JUVENILE FILLY TURF

No.8 Tara From the Cape who is listed at 12/1 on the morning line is a real good looking 2yo filly who gets JR in the saddle for Todd Pletcher. The price is right, the connections are right and she has two works here. No.3 Sky Lantern is in from Ireland and she has done nothing wrong in her five turf starts with 3 wins and 2 seconds. The only question is if she can handle this hard turf course. No.5 Spring Venture won all 3 of her starts in Canada, two on the grass and one on the synthetic. No.6 Watsdachances is in top form for trainer Chad Brown. 3-5-6-8

Win and place 8 and a tri box 3-5-6-8

Race 7

THE 2 MILLION BC CUP JUVENILE FILLES

No.1 Beholder opted for this over the sprint and she will need to wire them. Gomez will be sending from the bell. She has the top Beyer of any 2yo so far this season but it came going 6 furlongs when she won by 11 lenghts. She will set things up for the undefeated No.2 Executiveprivilege who beat Beholder by a nostril going 7 furlongs. She runs them all alike with consistent Beyers in the 90’s and she can rate. No.3 Spring in the Air will offer the betting value from far off the hot pace. 1-2-3

Race 8

THE 2MILLION BC FILLY AND MARE TURF

No.7 Up may offer the betting value in here at 12/1 on the morning line. No.4 The Fugue is one consistent filly trained by Sir John Gosden, beat her to cash. No.6 Lady of Shamrock owns the home court advantage as she is 3 for 3 here on this course and she has won back to back Grade 1 races with Mike Smith in the irons. She will need to stay clear of trouble. 4-6-7

Exacta box 4-6-7

Race 9

THE 2 MILLION LADIES CLASSIC

No.6 Royal Delta who opted for this trying to repeat her win last year over the BC Classic tomorrow will attempt to stop the undefeated No.5 Awesome Feather. No.7 Include Me Out will find a perfect pace up front to make her late run at what will be a big price. No.2 My Miss Aurelia will also try and stay undefeated and she has four works here over the surface including a big 4 furlong work on October 28th. 6 with 2-5-7

Race 10

We get back to the regular card in the Grade 2 Twilight Derby for 3yo. No.3 Power Foot could pop at long odds in here as he exits our HTW list, No.4 Smart Ellis exits the same race off a troubled trip and he also exits our HTW list. No.6 Old Time Hockey also exits the race and he was in trouble also. No.8 My Best Brother is the speed of the speed. 2-4-6-8
