Breeders' Cup Stakes Saturday

What an exciting week of sports. The CHICAGO CUBS end their 108 year championship drought by winning the 2016 World Series in baseball and now we are into the greatest day of racing, the Breeders' Cup Championships.

Santa Anita Race 9 {Longines Breeders' Cup Turf~G1~1 1/2 mile~TURF~3 year old Up~Graded Stakes}

A champion group of twelve Turf specialists will compete for the 4 Million dollar purse in this stellar race. It does come up a little light on speed. The speed figs are very, very close making it one of the most competitive races on the card. There are six millionaires in the field that will all have a significant impact. It might be possible that the sons and daughter of Galileo [IRE] dominate the race (there are four) and the grandsons of Smart Strike provide a mighty challenge. It should be the most exciting race of the day.

#4 Flintshire [GB] (Castellano / C. Brown) has the edge with the highest speed number at the distance coupled with a 100% in the money record from six starts at same. He holds the second highest last out speed number and has put in three strong workouts. He should be tracking the pace closely ready to spring swiftly into the stretch. A millionaire son of Dansilli [GB], he is an eight time winner with an overall 86% in the money record.
$2 WIN  /  $3 PLACE  /  $5 SHOW.

#6 Mondaliste [IRE] (Tudhope / O'Meara) should challenge with the highest last out speed number, a two race progression, and one peaking workout. This guy won the Arlington Million back in August. He should be tracking and closing hard when the quickening begins. A millionaire son of Galileo [IRE], he has scored five career victories and is 68% in the money from twenty-two career starts.
$2 PLACE  /  $3 SHOW.

#10 Found [IRE] (Moore / O'Brien) should contend with a couple of supreme last out performances in Great Britain and France.She is another tracker-closer that will be in the thick of it heading for the wire. This lad is another that is 100% in the money at the distance. A millionaire daughter of Galileo [IRE], he has notched six career wins and is 95% in the money form twenty career starts.
$2 SHOW.

Other Wagering Interests

#5 Ashleyluvssugar (Stevens / Eurton) should be in the mix with the third highest (tie) last out speed number and three hearty workouts. This guy holds the fourth highest speed number at the distance coupled with a 100% win record from two tries at same. He could be forwardly placed giving him first jump heading into the stretch. A son of Game Plan, he has eight career wins and is 76% in the money from seventeen career starts.

#7 Ulysses [IRE] (Dettori / Stoute) is coming in from across the pond to challenge after racing very successfully in Great Britain. Amongst this group he is the lightest raced scoring a 66% in the money record from six career starts. He has notched a victory at this distance. Another son of Galileo [IRE], he should track and close gallantly.
