Bayern Holds Off Toast of New York in the Classic!

Bayern Wins Classic Bayern survives the challenge of Toast of New York  by a neck and the track stewards in the! $5 Million Breeders' Cup Classic!

At 6-1 odds, the front running Bayern was able to take advantage of the track speed bias on Saturday to prevail in the biggest horse race in the U.S. and give trainer Bob Baffert his first Breeders' Cup Classic win!

After holding off his main competition of Toast of New York and California Chrome, he had to survive a stewards inquiry to the start of the race where he came over on the race favorite Shared Belief!

The stewards decided not to take him down because it was at the start of the race coming from the gate. Of course the connections of the undefeated Shared Belief did not agree with their decision as Shared Belief could do no better than finish 4th.

Jockey Mike Smith said that start cost him all chances of winning the race.

There has been a lot of discussion that the stewards made the wrong decision. Even though I had Toast of New York (18-1) to win the race, I do agree with their decision!

It was the year of 3-year olds against older horses as they finished 1st - 6th.

In other Breeders' Cup races on Day 2, it was a day of longshots as only (1) Favorite was able to win!

Favorites finished: (1) - Win, (2) - 2nd, (2) 4th and (4) out-of-the-money!

Winners paid: $125.40 - $13.00 - $8.20 - $16.40 - $29.80 - $14.40 - $40.20 - $62.00 and $14.20!

It was truly a great day for horse players!

It was also a very good weekend for East Coast trainer Chad Brown who won 3 of the Turf Divisions. He won the Filly & Mare Turf as well as having the runner-up horse. He also had the winners in the Turf Sprint and Juvenile Fillies Turf divisions!

It was NOT a good weekend for the European shippers as they were ONLY able to win (1) Division - the Turf with Karakonite (JPN)!

They took down the first (3) positions which paid a nice $5,010 for a $1 wager.

There was definitely a speed bias on Saturday that I feel was a result of the track being sealed in the early morning because of the rain gotten the night before and even on the morning of.

It started with the first (3) races on the undercard being won on the front end and then the first Breeders' Cup race, Juvenile Fillies, being won wire-to-wire by 62-1 Take Charge Brandi trained by D. Wayne Lukas!

The Sprint Division was also won by a horse on the front end as the top (3) finishers were racing on the front end - only the 4th place horse was able to close from the back of the pack.

Then in the Classic the winner Bayern was able to hold on going wire-to-wire. The 2nd and 3rd place runners were all racing on the front end the entire race with the 5th place runner being the only horse that could close ground from the back of the pack!

The Juvenile Division was the ONLY Dirt race where the winner came from the back of the field. Texas Red came from dead last in (11) horse field to win going away by 6 1/2 lengths!

Breeders' Cup - Day 1

Untapable Wins Distaff Untapable prevails in the Breeders' Cup Distaff over Don't Tell Sophia and Iotapa.

As the 8/5 favorite she was facing older horses for the first time. That proved to be no problem as she won her 4th Grade 1 race this year!

She will easily win the 3-year old Filly of the year award and depending on the outcome of the Classic on Saturday, horse of the year!

After the race jockey Rosie Napravnik announced her retirement starting Monday as she is pregnant. Rosie is one of the best jocks riding today and a horse racing fan's favorite! She will be missed.

Goldencents Wins 2nd Dirt MileIn the Dirt Mile, Goldecents won back-to-back editions and became the first favorite to win this Division as well as the first repeat winner!

He was sent off as the 3-5 favorite and won again in wire-to-wire fashion. He won by 1 1/4 lengths, holding off the late closing Tapiture, ridden by Rosie, with Pants on Fire holdin on for third.

This was Goldencents last race as he too is retiring and will be heading to the breeding barn!

In the other two Divisions, Hootenanny won the Juvenile Turf for trainer Wesley Ward. Hootenanny went off at 6-1 odds as the 3rd favorite in the field.

The second place horse, Luck of the Kitten is also trained by Ward.

Lady Eli won the Juvenile Fillies Turf Division for trainer Chad Brown. She was also the post time favorite at 5/2 odds.

The European imports did not have a good day the Turf Division on Day 1 but the bigger events are on Saturday and that is their top runners will show up!

In the 4 Breeders' Cup Divisions on Day 1, the Favorite won 3 of them  ... look for that to change on Day 2!

Ravens Pass 2008 Breeders Cup Classic Saturday will showcase the remaining 9 Breeders' Cup  Championship races featuring the $5 Million BC Classic at 1 1/4 Miles. 4 of the races will be run on the Turf.

After 6 Editions of the Marathon, it has been dropped from the program. This is a big disappointment to horse players because it was a race that produced longshot winners!

The average payouts in those 6 years were; Win - $34.40, Exacta - $367, Trifecta - $2,452 and the Superfecta - $17,512! 

The Classic Division is shaping up to be one of the MOST competitive and interesting editions with the show-down of two West Coast 3-year old superstars in California Chrome (KY Derby and Preakness winner) and the UNDEFEATED Shared Belief (2yr old Champion last year). Other top horses look to be Bayern (PA Derby &  Haskell winner), Tonalist (won Belmont Stakes), Moreno(Whitney winner), and V.E. Day (won Travers) and others!

Breeders Cup Classic Show Down

This will be the 8th time that the races are held at Santa Anita Park and the 13th time they have been held in Southern California.

In 2009 and 2008 the Breeders' Cup were held at Santa Anita Park when the races were run over a synthetic surface. In 2012 they got smart and switched back to a true dirt surface.

This summer they did a complete replacement of the dirt surface with NEW dirt that is similar to that which is used at the Los Alamitos track. You will want to keep an eye on the Fall meet races at Santa Anita to see how the new surface is playing!

2008 Breeders Cup Sprint Midnight Lute Previous Breeders' Cups held at Santa Anita were in 1986, 1993, 2003, 2008, 2009, 2012 and 2013.

Last year the Breeders' Cup produced (3) repeat winners. They were Wise Dan (Mile), Groupie Doll (F&M Sprint) and Jim Rome's Mizdirection (Turf Sprint).

Wise Dan was named horse of the year for the second time and is looking to make a return trip to this year's edition of the Mile!

Jockey Gary Stevens pulled off the difficult feat of winning both the Distaff (Beholder) and the Classic (Mucho Macho Man).

In 2012 super horse Royal Delta won back-to-back Distaff/Ladies Classic.

Jockey Mike Smith made Breeders' Cup history by winning his 16th Championship race on Royal Delta and with Mizdirection in the Turf Sprint for owner Jim Rome..

The Argentine Calidoscopio won the Marathon Division coming from way back to give veteran jockey Aaron Grydor his first ever Breeders' Cup win. Calidoscopio became the first Breeders' Cup winner from Argentina as well as the oldest horse to win a race - he was 9 years old.

We saw Wise Dan win the Mile Division while trouncing the Euro invaders and thus being named Horse of the Year!

In 2009 we saw the UNDEFEATED mare Zenyatta take on the boys in the Classic as she came from dead last to catch Gio Ponti in mid-stretch to win and remain undefeated in 14 career races!

We also saw the mare Goldikova win her 2nd straight Mile against the boys.

2008 Zenyatta won the Ladies Classic with her patented run from last to first to keep her undefeated record intact. Also Curlin was attempting to win his 2nd Classic but came up short against the Euro invaders Raven's Pass and Henry the Navigator as he finished 4th after taking the lead at the top of the stretch!

In 2003 Richard Mandella became the 1st trainer to win 4 Breeders' Cup Championship Races in the same year. 2003 also gave us the First Ever Dead-heat in a Breeders' Cup race when Johar and High Chaparral hit the wire together in the BC Turf!

In 1993 we got the BIGGEST upset in the history of the Breeders' Cup when Arcangues won the Classic at 133-1 with Jerry Bailey riding. Arcangues was a European import and did not get bet by U.S. racing fans ... not even with Jerry Bailey riding!

What surprises will we see this year?

In it's 31st year, the Breeders' Cup has become horse racing's most prestigious event attracting the best horses from North America, South America, Europe and Japan. It has experienced unprecedented growth with total races having expanded from 8 to 13 and total purse money increasing to $24.5 Million!.

Breeders Cup Winning Profiles The KEY to winning on Breeders' Cup races is being able to separate the Contenders from the Pretenders. Most races will have full fields with a maximum of 14 runners and it is CRITICAL to weed out the Pretenders and False favorites!

We have developed a Proven Winning Profile for each of the traditional 8 Championship races based on the past 30 years of the Breeders' Cup.

The Winning Profiles utilizes the factors that have proven to be the most CRITICAL in predicting the outcome of each race!

  • Do you know which race has NEVER been won by an European horse?
  • Do you know which Prep Races has produced MOST of the Juvenile Fillies winner?
  • Do you know which race guarantees that horses coming into it with a win streak of 5 or more and are usually the favorite are 0 for 9?
  • Do you know which race(s) are almost always won by a Long-shot?
  • Do you know which race(s) are almost always won by the Favorite?
  • Do you know which race(s) almost always has a Long-shot finish 2nd?
  • Do you know which Prep race the winner is a certain Kiss of Death in the BC Sprint?

Do you think that if you had this kind of information you would be able to better handicap the Breeders' Cup races and have a better chance of zeroing in on some winners?

Would you have a better chance at cashing in on more Exacta, Trifecta, Superfecta, Pick 3, Pick 4 and Pick 6 wagers?

Horse Players Association Do you feel that the horse racing industry takes WE the player for granted?

Then consider joining the Horse-players Association of North America (H.A.N.A.). Membership is FREE!

They are a grass roots Non Profit organization made up of horse-players just like you.

They are not happy with track management and horseman's groups. They are less than thrilled with what they are doing to the game that we love. Instead of promoting awareness of the sport and growing handle they have become bogged down with industry infighting and have completely forgotten something: The importance of the customer.

We are tired of the signal wars, exclusive ADW deals, excessive takeouts, breakage, trainers who are rewarded for cheating, an obsolete tote system, and an attitude that smacks of entitlement. We want open access to all track signals for all ADWs, takeouts that are competitive with other forms of gambling, the abolishment of breakage, severe penalties for trainers who cheat, and odds updates in real time.

But most of all we want those who run racing to recognize us. The player matters. The player is a stakeholder too. Without money bet by us players the game would cease to exist. We can effect change. We can bring racing back to the prominence it once held in people's hearts on a national level.

But it won't be easy and it won't come overnight. It's going to take vision, commitment, and effort. But change IS possible... IF we band together in numbers. We are an independent grass roots player's organization that desires change. Won't you join us?
