Breeders’ Cup Saturday Races
Race 7: 6 Furlongs. G1 TwinSpires Breeders’ Cup Sprint
This race is wide open, there are a core group of top contenders, but there not much faster than the rest. This is a tough race to figure out, but thankfully we have the Conductor.
*Top Pick #2 Promises Fulfilled (6/1) – There is going to be a fast pace in this race, but this is the old speed of the speed angle. This colt is lightning and will go guns blazing on the front end. At 6 furlongs the Conductor thinks he can hold on. He has the guts to hold them off and the Conductor can’t wait get him home.
#5 Imperial Hint (9/5) – He’s a great racehorse and obviously has a chance to win, but the Conductor thinks Promises Fulfilled’s early gas will pose a problem. He hasn’t seen a pace like this since his race at Churchill in May, his worst in the last few years. The Conductor may toss him.
#8 Limousine Liberal (6/1) – 6/8 lifetime at Churchill Downs, you can’t leave this gelding off your tickets. He should get a perfect setup with a hot pace to run at and should be poised to run his best in his 3rd start off the layoff.
#9 Roy H (5/2) – The winner of last year’s sprint will tough to beat again. Drawn well to the outside, he can sit just off the leaders and get a perfect trip. He’s the likeliest runner to take down Promises Fulfilled and is the class of the race.
*Underneath Uppercut Body Shot #7 Distinctive B (12/1) – This old boy likes to run 2nd, but that’s all the Conductor is asking for. He’ll be forwardly placed and has some speed figures that make him competitive on his best day. He’s a Del Mar specialist, but he’s in career form and who’s to say he won’t love Churchill? Please run 3rd.
