Saturday, November 5, 2011 – Day 73 and Breeders’ Cup Day 2

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.

Last play of the Breeders’ is the Late Pick 4. Here is a $72 ticket looking for one of the nice BC payoffs.

I have a $108 Pick 5 play that uses three horses mentioned above.

Just because, here is the Place Pick 6 for Monmouth.  It is a standard PP6 ticket for $36: 5,6 with 4,5 with 4,5,6 with 5,6,8 with 2 with 2,3.
