Notes on Friday's Breeder's Cup Races

Didn't win a Breeder's Cup race (although uncharacteristically very conservative) and fell short of the Pick 4 when Dortmund didn't run his race. Had the other three. Coincidentally, I bet an exacta with the winner and Dortmund, but didn't include him on the ticket. Can't bet them all. I did hit an exacta on an earlier race and never looked at the exacta payoffs on Beholder which were very generous. Didn't bet the race figuring the prices would be too short.

As I suspected, the track (both dirt and especially the turf) is too hard for the Europeans. I will throw them all out with the exception of Found who I really don't like in the mile and one-half turf race, but he has won over $7 million. Some really good horses aren't going to win because of the turf feeling like the Thruway. They won't be able to make up a lot of ground in the stretch.

On Saturday, bet the front runners or close to the front on both dirt and turf and lean toward the Saratoga and Santa Anita horses.Don't know if I will post the late Pick 4 yet. Have way too many horses. Good luck!
