Saturday’s Breeders’ Cup Races
Race 4: Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint
This is one of the biggest spread races on the card for the Conductor, chaos will likely ensue.
#1 Ruby Notion (20/1) – A winner of two in a row, her win two starts back was the fastest on soft turf in this field. That’s the ground she’ll get on Saturday and this race is wide open. The rail is an obvious concern, but at the price she’ll be she’s a must use.
#5 Disco Partner (7/2) – He hasn’t run his best on soft ground, but there was a little cut in the ground last time out at Belmont and he won like a good thing. He’s the class of the field and the Conductor won’t let him knock him out.
#7 Lost Treasure (20/1) – He’s a young boy shipping over from Ireland, but he’s battle tested, proven over a yielding turf course and gets Lasix for the first time. The Conductor won’t let the O’brien/Moore combo beat him.
*Top Pick and Gullet Shot #8 Chanteline (15/1) – A winner of 3 of her last 4, this mare is in career form and ran a monster race over the soft turf behind Ruby Notion a few starts back. She’s drawn a favorable post, working well and the Conductor is looking his chops.
#11 World of Trouble (6/1) – He’s run big figures on dirt, but he’s run even bigger on turf in his last two starts. His win at Belmont last start over good turf was jaw dropping and he could be unstoppable on his newfound preferred surface.
