2021 Breeders Cup Classic Top Contenders

Essential Quality 3/1

On the whole, it isn’t easy to match the record of Essential Quality. In his career, he has eight wins in nine starts. Of course, the 4th place finish at the Kentucky Derby was the one big blemish. Since that disappointment, Essential Quality has posted three consecutive wins. The last time out was a Grade-1 win at the Travers Stakes in Saratoga on August 28, 2021.

Medina Spirit 4/1

Of course, no horse in this race will attract more attention than Medina Spirit. Cause by his Kentucky Derby win remaining in dispute. The Bob Baffert trained horse failed two drug tests after the Derby. But the Kentucky Horse Racing Commission hasn’t ruled on whether the result stands or will be overturned.

Following the debacle, Baffert went into hiding and has kept a low profile. That was shortly after he was being labeled as the Bill Belichick of horse trainers. Baffert’s success and ego have made him a lot of enemies. Accordingly, there are charges that he’s been a cheater for his entire career. Regardless, Baffert has a cloud over him for the rest of his time as a trainer.

Late on, Medina Spirit has won his last two starts. First was a win in the Shared Belief Stakes at Del Mar. Following that was a win in the Grade-1 Awesome Again from Santa Anita.

Hot Rod Charlie 4/1

The last time out for Hot Rod Charlie was a win at the Grade-1 Pennsylvania Derby on September 25, 2021. Previously Hot Rod Charlie finished 3rd at the Kentucky Derby and 2nd at the Belmont Stakes.

Knicks Go 5/2

Late on, Knicks Go has the hot hand with three wins in a row. Furthermore, Knicks Go has won seven of his last eight starts. That includes a win at the Grade-1 Whitney. Last year at the Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile, Knicks Go was the winner.
