Breeders Crown Elims: 3-year-olds and Older Mares

Email

Nine eliminations for the Breeders Crown were contested on Saturday at Woodbine Racetrack. Let’s examine the key performances from each division.

3-year-old Filly Trot

CEDAR DOVE never had an anxious moment while posting a track record 1:53.2 clocking.

CRYS DREAM got caught behind a tired foe which eventually broke in front of her. From there she had no shot at the top spot and easily made the final.

IRON LADY found room to angle off the cones into the stretch and finished with a strong burst of trot to win.

PANTHOLOPS overcame an early break to make the final. She was trotting very nicely in deep stretch.

3-year-old Colt & Gelding Trot

CHAPTER SEVEN waited patiently and pounced on the leaders with good stretch speed. It was a nice effort.

DAYLON MAGICIAN was flat last week but looked much better tonight. He battled nicely while uncovered and looks like a big player for the final.

MANOFMANYMISSIONS was as professional as he has ever looked. The colt rushed to the lead with efficient speed and cruised to an easy win.

Older Mare Pace

ANNDROVETTE rushed to the lead, got a nice middle half breather and won impressively under light urging.

None of the others stood out, but most of them raced well enough to have a chance in the final.

3-year-old Filly Pace

DROP THE BALL was spectacular. She made a quick brush to the front and set a Canadian record of 1:49 in victory while well within herself. She looks like a legitimate 3-5 shot in her Final next Saturday.

3-year-old Colt & Gelding Pace

ALSACE HANOVER aborted a half-hearted leave attempt to settle in at the back. He closed from last at the head of the lane to miss by a narrow margin.

ROLL WITH JOE took a half mile worth of air on the rim while trying to get to the front. After giving way for the pocket he somehow had enough left in his tank to battle gamely through the stretch.

BETTERTHANCHEDDAR flashed good speed at both ends of the mile and looks like a clear player in the Final.

HUGADRAGON left, yielded, retook, and just missed in a nice effort. He is racing his best right now.

BIG BAD JOHN had absolutely no chance while stuck in a bad flow and nowhere near the leaders.

 

The $6 million Breeders Crown finals will be contested on October 29 with a 6:30pm post time. Twelve races with purses ranging from $300,000 to $650,000 each will be offered. We will have full card analysis, live video, and much more right here at DRF.com.

I’ll be back after all the draws are complete on Tuesday with some early thoughts on the card.

Below are the early entries for the entire Breeders Crown card. Driver choices and morning line odds are not yet available. Post positions for races 7 and 11 will be drawn on Tuesday, October 25.

Looking forward to this solid card, even though it is missing my two favorites from this year: Big Jim and See You At Peelers. Will be rooting for MMM, Jezzy, Lucky Jim, Krispy, Joe, and Alexie.
