Day of the Breeders’ Cup turned out OK. I picked 3 winners out of the six BC races: Secret Circle, My Miss Aurelia, and Royal Delta. That was three favorites, but you have to pick winners. I do not automatically discard all favorites. I discard bad favorites, the ones that are not going to win. I collected a 50¢ ticket on the early Pick 4 for $390.
Today I believe there are favorites to discard. On the top of list is Big Drama. I have to let Big Drama beat me. If he can win this race with virtually no race preparation I will tip my hat to him.
I have two horses at very nice prices that come early in the BC sequence. Eldaafer (10-1) in the Marathon and Animal Spirits (8-1) in the Juvenile Turf. I also like Amazombie (5-1) in the Sprint. That is a three race sequence for BC races 3, 4, 5.
UPDATE – 3:10pm – Back in business after a healthy win on Amazombie ($17.60, $7.60 for win/place) in the Sprint. That is the one horse I have liked since his win in the Ancient Title. Here is a Pick 3 starting in race 6. For 50¢ this is a $24 ticket.
I have a $108 Pick 5 play that uses three horses mentioned above.
