The Conductor’s Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Preview

Race 9: 1 1/16 Mile. G1 TVG Breeders’ Cup Juvenile

*#1 Dennis’ Moment (8/5) – He’s the one to beat plain and simple. He’s working like a monster by all accounts.

#2 Wrecking Crew (20/1) – Stretching out for the first time, he’ll be a bomb and has upside. The Conductor will use him underneath while most wont.

#3 Shoplifted (20/1) – He’s not fast enough.

#4 Storm the Court (20/1) – It’s a home game for him with strong connections, maybe he can clunk up for 3rd.

*#5 Scabbard (8/1) – This colt is the price the Conductor thinks has a major chance. In his first time routing he steadied and lost all momentum going into the far turn and still came running at #1 Dennis’ Moment. If the #1 gets beat, this is the boy to do it.

#6 Eight Rings (2/1) – The Bobo Baffert runner with all the hype, he is an obvious contender but the Conductor is slightly against him. He wasn’t impressed with his finish in the American Pharoah Stakes and will be heavily bet. He may get loose on the lead again however so the Conductor can’t be completely against him.

#7 Anneau d’Or (15/1) – This is asking a lot in his first dirt race.

#8 Full Flat (30/1) – No shot.


Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Breakdown

Friday’s Breeders’ Cup Pick 5

Race 9: 1 1/16 Mile. G1 Sentient Jet Breeders’ Cup Juvenile

This race is being hyped as a classic East Coast vs West Coast showdown.   It’s a tail as old as time as the two heavy favorites meet in the middle to decide the score.  The problem for the bettors in this one is that neither of them of them are going to win.  The East Coast will win this battle, but it’s not the horse all the mortals think.

#5 Well Defined (20/1) – The Conductor thinks this boy is a very sneaky longshot, who can hit the board in this one.  He went wire to wire setting a slow pace last time at Gulfstream Park, but the Conductor’s figures don’t lie, and he’s run back two back very good ones.  If he can sit behind horses, he’ll finish strongly and Mike Smith hops aboard, which is very intriguing.

#6 Complexity (5/2) – The East Coast favorite, who has been extremely impressive, winning in gate to wire fashion in his first two starts.  The Conductor likes him a lot, but the added distance and other front-runners in here don’t make him a cinch.

#9 Game Winner (8/5) – This is the Bob Baffert type West Coast shipper that seems to win every big race.  He’s proven he can pass horses and should get a perfect trip sitting just behind the leaders.  The Conductor thinks he has a slight edge over complexity.

*Top Pick and Gullet Slit #11 Code of Honor (5/1) – This is the colt the Conductor is most excited about on Friday.  He ran behind #6 Complexity in his last start, but he stumbled badly out of the gate.  The Conductor thought it was a monster effort to close from last and the pace wasn’t that hot.  Complexity will face more early pressure in this race and the added distance favors Code of Honor.  He’s bred to route and the Conductor envisions him running them all down in the stretch.
