Blame is a Threat to Zenyatta in Breeders Cup Betting

The highlight in Breeders Cup betting will be the Breeders Cup Classic where Zenyatta will complete her brilliant career.

She will be favored in Breeders Cup odds at Sbg but just barely over a talented horse named Blame.  He is one of the major threats to Zenyatta in the Breeders Cup Classic which will be run on Saturday, November 6th.

Blame the Second Choice
In the Breeders Cup Classic there is not much doubt that Zenyatta will be the favorite.  It is now looking like Blame will be the second choice in Breeders Cup odds.  Blame worked five furlongs last week at Keeneland’s Polytrack and went very well.  Trainer Al Stall was very pleased with the work.  The preliminary odds for the Classic have Blame as the 4-1 second choice behind Zenyatta. Blame won both the Fayette and the Clark last year.

Blame a Winner in Five of Six
Blame has won five of his last six races.  He was beaten last time out in the Jockey Club Gold Cup as he finished second to Haynesfield. That loss snapped a five-race winning streak.  Trainer Al Stalls Jr. said that they were a little disappointed about the loss in the Jockey Gold Cup but that t hey believe he has a big chance to win the Classic.  One of his biggest wins this year came at Churchill Downs in the Stephen Foster.  He also won the Whitney Handicap over Quality Road.

Classic Field
Zenyatta will be the favorite in Breeders Cup odds in the Breeders Cup Classic with Blame, Lookin at Lucky and Quality Road the three likely contenders. Not to be left out is Haynesfield who beat Blame in the Jockey Gold Cup.
