Saturday Race 10: 1 1/8 Mile. F.G1 Longines Breeders’ Cup Distaff
*Gullet Shot of the Day #2 Royal Flag (8/1) – The Ductor’s best bet Friday will be this mare if this morning line is accurate. She’s improved in every start this year and should get a dream stalking trip. With speed drawn to both the inside and outside of #6 Letruska (6/5), she’ll take pressure all the way around and that will give the off the pace runners every chance.
#3 Malathaat (4/1) – She’s another one who should be aided by the race flow and she might not even need it. She’s shown immense talent in her young career and her Kentucky Oaks win was quite a performance. This filly has proven she can win without the best of trips and the Ductor thinks she stacks up well with the older mares.
