The Breeders’ Cup weekend would never get here, so it seemed. . The last month it has been crazy in the horse racing world with all of the speculation and guesses for each race. It is now upon us and let’s get after looking at the post positions, and odds for each race. The race takes place at Keeneland race track.

 

 

Breeders' Cup

These were the international odds Tuesday for the Breeders’ Cup Classic, with last week’s odds shown for horses whose prices changed.

BC Classic

Distaff. Going into Saturday’s Alabama (G1) at Saratoga, Coaching Club American Oaks (G1) winner Nest remained the 9-2 co-favorite in the Distaff. So did 4-year-old Clairière, the Shuvee (G2) victor who is headed to the Personal Ensign (G1) on the same track Aug. 27. Odds were unchanged since last week for the Distaff.

Matareya 25-1 Brad Cox Pioneerof the Nile 3 f

Dirt Mile. The same dozen horses as last week. The same odds. And the same risk in betting Life Is Good (3-1) and Flightline (7-2). Either or both could end up in the Classic instead. The directions they take are unlikely to be confirmed for weeks.

Sprint. Remember that question about which race Flightline will start? Based on his odds shortening from 7-2 to 3-1, it would appear there has been some action on his starting Nov. 5 in the Sprint at Keeneland. At the same time, there was a slight fade on 4-year-old Jackie’s Warrior. Unbeaten in four starts this year and still the Sprint favorite, Asmussen’s Vanderbilt Handicap (G1) winner went from 6-5 to 5-4. Jackie’s Warrior is probable for the Aug. 27 running of the seven-furlong Forego (G1) at Saratoga.

Turf. It was curious this division remained open for betting. Other grass-race markets were suspended while so many would-be candidates were entered this week for the Juddmonte International (G1), Yorkshire Oaks (G1) and Nunthorpe (G1) at York. What’s more, 5-1 favorite Yibir had what was called a minor setback that prevented him from racing Aug. 27 in the Sword Dancer (G1) at Saratoga. The 18 horses still in play carried the same odds as last week.

Filly & Mare Sprint. Matareya and Just One Time, both trained by Brad Cox, and fellow Grade 1 winner Kimari opened joint 5-1 favorites to win this seven-furlong race. The 3-year-old Matareya finished third Aug. 6 in the Test (G1) at Saratoga. Since losing the Derby City Distaff (G1) on May 7, 4-year-old Just One Time has had only one timed workout – none since July 2. Wesley Ward-trained 5-year-old Kimari rebounded from her fifth-place outcome in the Derby City Distaff to win last month’s Honorable Miss Handicap (G2) at Saratoga. Upcoming starts for the three horses were uncertain.
