Saturday, November 7 – Race 4: 7 Furlongs. F.G1 Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Sprint
*#1 Speech (6/1) – She’s one of the Conductor’s key horses for Saturday. She had a tough trip behind Swiss Skydiver last time. Cutting back to 7 furlongs, her race at Keeneland was her best and she ran right with Gamine at Oaklawn. She looks to get a good trip behind dueling leaders.
#2 Gamine (7/5) – Cutting back to a sprint, this girl is a freak. She’s going to have to duel Serengeti Empress, but the Conductor sees her winning that battle. He’ll toss the Empress and press Gamine.
#3 Come Dancing (8/1) – This old mare is a solid filly and will get a good trip, but the Conductor doesn’t think she’s good enough.
#4 Inthemidstofbiz (30/1) – She’s going to get cooked up close to a hot pace.
#5 Sconsin (20/1) – This filly got a great setup last time and will get another good one here. However, the Conductor doesn’t see her better than 3rd.
#6 Venetian Harbor (8/1) – She needs the lead and isn’t going to get it. She’s a complete toss for the Conductor.
#7 Serengeti Empress (3/1) – She’s a great mare and all guts. If she somehow wins the duel with Gamine and holds on the Conductor will tip his cap.
#8 Sally’s Curlin (20/1) – She’ll be running for 3rd and may be able to get it only if it’s a complete meltdown.
#9 Bell’s the One (6/1) – This is a classy filly and running her best this year. She nailed Serengeti Empress last time with a great trip and looks to get a similar trip again. The Conductor prefers Speech, but she wouldn’t surprise him.
