The horse is coming off a win in the Grade 3 Sen. Ken Maddy Handicap at Santa Anita. Trainer Jenine Sahadi is now looking at putting the horse into the Turf Sprint and the horse could be worth a Breeders Cup bet at the sportsbook.
Bet on Breeders cup odds at the sports book won’t favor Gotta Have Her but underdogs win in the Breeders’ Cup. A filly going against the males is a risky proposition but Sahadi is looking at the BC Turf Spint. "I had the idea in the back of my mind and I wanted to see how things played," Sahadi said. "I know it will be tough." Bet on Breeders Cup stats have Gotta Have Her winning 8 of 23 starts. Breeders Cup bet stats have her winning three graded stakes this year including the Grade 3 Las Cienegas Handicap on the turf and the Grade 2 Palomar Handicap on the turf. The horse was second in the Grade 1 John Mabee Stakes at Del Mar.
The advantage that Gotta Have Her will have in this bet on Breeders Cup race is the home course advantage. "You walk out of your barn and go to the saddling paddock," Sahadi said, "It's about the trip. You can't take anything away from her level of versatility. She wasn't embarrassed going a mile and an eighth and then she came down the hill." Bet on Breeders Cup will have Tyler Baze getting the mount and he won with her in the Maddy by two lengths.
Bet on Breeders Cup handicapping at the sportsbook has the BC Turf Sprint wide open. California Flag is going to be one of the favorites with those making a Breeders Cup bet. The horse won the Grade 3 Morvich Handicap. Alos in the Bet on Breeders Cup running will be European Group 1 winner Fleeting Spirit. Bet on Breeders Cup should have the Turf Sprint with the maximum field of 14 starters. Bet on Breeders Cup stats would have this as Sahadi’s first starter in Bet on Breeders Cup action since 1997. That year Sahadi won the Sprint in Bet on Breeders Cup with Elmhurst. Sahadi also won the Breeders Cup bet with Lit de Justice in 1996.
