There are some good ones who will have a major impact on Breeders Cup odds including the brilliant Zenyatta. Let’s look at the California horses in this year’s Breeders Cup.
The best horse in the world is arguably the unbeaten Zenyatta. She is going to be favored in the Breeders Cup Classic as she has never lost in her 19 starts. She will try and end her career a perfect 20 for 20. If she runs her race she will likely beat a talented field in the Classic.
Lookin at Lucky
The second best horse in the Breeders Cup just might be in the same race as Zenyatta. Lookin at Lucky could go off as the second choice in the Classic. He could win Horse of the Year if he upsets Zenyatta.
This is another horse that can make a case for Horse of the Year. She will be heavily favored in the Ladies’ Classic. She won the Kentucky Oaks at Churchill earlier this year.
Champ Pegasus won’t be favored in the Turf in Breeders Cup wagering but he is training well for trainer Richard Mandella. The Usual Q.T. will be going in the Mile and has a shot for trainer James Cassidy. Crown of Thorns may not go off as the favorite in the Dirt Mile but he has a big shot. He was second in the Sprint last year in the Breeders Cup and could be a great value in the Dirt Mile. Smiling Tiger goes in the Sprint and he could finish in the money. He has never been off the board in his nine races. The Filly and Mare Sprint will have three California horses that could win in Breeders Cup odds. Evening Jewell is very consistent, Switch nearly beat Zenyatta last time out and Gabby’s Golden Gal is trained by Bob Baffert. The Turf Sprint has California Flag and Unzip Me and both probably are out of their league. The Marathon has Temple City who will be a long shot. The Juvenile has Jaycito and JP’s Gusto and Tell A Kelly.
