Friday Race 9: 1 1/16 G1 TVG Breeders’ Cup Juvenile
*Gullet Shot of the Day #3 Oviatt Class (20/1) – This is the Ductor’s favorite betting race of the Friday card and this bomb will be the key to his day. This race will have a wicked pace and that will compromise all of the heavy hitters. #1 Jack Christopher (9/5) will be sent from the rail and one of the Baffert runners #9 Pinehurst (8/1) or #12 Corniche (5/2) will be tasked with dueling him into submission. Oviatt Class was against the track last time and rolled right by Corniche in the gallop out. He has the best late pace figures in this field, a win over this track, and will get the setup he needs. Desormeaux has been riding well lately and the Ductor thinks he can time his move just right. At the least he’ll hit the board. Tick Tick.
