Saturday Race 4: 7 Furlongs. F.G1 Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Sprint
#6 Bella Sofia (5/2) – This isn’t a race the Ductor is particularly excited about playing with a small field, but he will take a shot against #5 Gamine (4/5) if the Baffert runners don’t fire on Friday. Baffert isn’t allowed to use any medication this Breeders’ Cup and the Ductor thinks this horses may not fire their best efforts. Gamine hasn’t been as impressive this year and Bella Sofia is continuing to progress. She’s drawn nicely to the outside and she’s the one that could freak in here. If you blinked you missed her prep at Belmont and she may go off over 3/1. If Baffert runners have disappointed leading into this race, the Ductor will chuck Gamine from the exacta and play Bella Sofia over #3 Edgeway (12/1) and #4 Ce Ce (4/1).
