Defending Sprint Champ out of Breeders Cup Betting

The winner in Breeders Cup betting in the Sprint last year was Dancing in Silks but that horse will not run in this year’s race.

Trainer Carla Gaines said that the horse will not be entered in the Sprint so there will be a more wide open Sprint race in Breeders Cup Odds for the race on Saturday, November 6th.

Dancing in Silks was very good last year as he won four of five races but this year he has done nothing, finishing out of the money in three of four starts.

Atta Boy Roy
One of the contenders in Breeders Cup odds for the Sprint could be Atta Boy Roy.  He will be ridden by Calvin Borel and everything is looking good for this horse. He worked a half-mile in: 48 over a fast Churchill track last week.  The work was the third-fastest at the distance.   Trainer Valorie Lund said that the horse loves the track and should be factor in the Sprint. This horse was planned for the Breeders Cup last year but he did not take to the polytrack at Santa Anita so he was pointed to this year’s race instead. The horse might get ignored a bit in the betting at SBG since he was eighth in the Woodford on grass two weeks ago at Keeneland.  He has a solid jockey in Calvin Borel who is expected to have five mounts in the Breeders Cup.  He will be on A.U. Miner in the Marathon, Tell a Kelly in the Juvenile Fillies, Hurricane Ike in the Dirt Mile and Seeking the Title in the Ladies’ Classic.
