BreezeFigs Quick-Pix, Breeders' Cup Special Friday & Saturday November 5th & 6th


OK, we're on a roll here: Our Pick last week, San Antone, was very impressive in his debut, ringing up a shockingly good $17.80 payoff, one of 13 maiden winners on the BreezeFigs cards during the week. But you want to know about the Breeders' Cup, so we are going with a bonus, special expanded edition today: Pix for four Breeders' Cup races featuring current or former BreezeFigs horses and three maiden BreezeFigs races around the country. See down below and good luck!

Before we get to the business of Pix, remember the 2010 sales sheets have a major addition in the SALE column: It's now labeled SALE & HIP, the "HIP" referring to the catalogue number for that horse in that sale. This reference will enable you to go to the website of the sales company involved and easily find the short video of the horse's breeze at that sale.

The web links for each sale are listed in the NOTES section of the new BreezeFigs Report and you will find all the information as to why we have done this and how you can benefit from this addition to the service by downloading the document which explains it all here. Remember, no other handicapping service can give you the advantages you need from 2-year-old sales, So sign up for DRF-Plus on the front page of www.drf.com and get the BreezeFigs cards.

Our rules still hold about BreezeFigs "qualified" runners: You can get a good idea of what "qualified" BreezeFigs horses are by clicking on BreezeFigs Information underneath the two BreezeFigs links in the DRF-PLUS box in the right hand column on the www.drf.com home page and downloading files there. Remember, keep stride length (SL) in mind when handicapping from the BreezeFigs sheet and take advantage of all the tips that we provide on those sheets as well.

If you click here you will get a document which details our latest study. The conclusion for those who like to know the bottom line fast is this: When it comes to 2-year-old racing only, horses that earned Group 1 or Group 2 BreezeFigs and had longer-than-average stride lengths at the five major 2-year-old sales of 2006-07-08-09 won more races, won earlier, and earned more black-type, than horses with shorter-than-average stride lengths, regardless of BreezeFigs Group. There's a lot more to it than that, and a review of this document, which is the first in a series, will strengthen your hand at the windows, or, if you are a buyer, at the sales or claim box. So, download it and absorb.

Also, refer to a study we did which shows that using BreezeFigs for 3-year-old maiden races in just as viable as using them for 2-year-old maiden races. Go to the DRF PLUS box on the www.drf.com home page, click on BreezeFigs™ Information, and then download "2006 Sales Study," or just click right here.

Here's our Pix for Friday:

Churchill Downs, 6th Race, Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies Turf (G1), Mile (Turf)

Give strong consideration to More Than Real here. She was a 140k RNA at FTFFEB and posted a Group 1, three-over-Par profile there on the dirt, with a 23 foot SL that was .39 feet above average. She has shown to be handy and love the turf, and if she wins, owner Bobby Flay will throw a barbeque for the entire city of Louisville. Not! Use her in your gimmicks.

Churchill Downs, 8th Race, Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies (G1), 1 1/16 Miles (Dirt)

Very tough race here with five BreezeFigs fillies in there, including two that were three-under-Par Group 3's with slightly above average SLs (Jordy Y, 23.30 foot SL at OBSFEB) and Joyful Victory (23.25 foot SL at FTFFEB). The other three are much stronger contenders, from the rail out: Indian Gracey, a really nice filly who was three-over-Par Group 2 at OBSAPR with a 23.93 foot SL; Delightful Mary, a six-over-Par Group 2 at the same sale with a 24.21 foot SL; and Tell a Kelly, a three-over-Par Group 2 at OBSMAR with a 24.12 foot SL. The latter three are solid fillies for your gimmicks, and we like Tell a Kelly to take the whole thing.

Here's our Pix for Saturday:

Churchill Downs, 4th Race, Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf (G1), Mile (Turf)

Give strong consideration to Group 1's Rough Sailing and Humble and Hungry here for your gimmicks. Rough Sailing was one of the few who worked at three furlongs we liked this year, at EASMAY where he was three-over-Par with a 23.93 foot SL. Humble and Hungry blew the doors off at OBSAPR with an eleven-over-Par profile that featured a huge 25.77 foot SL. Either one is a solid gimmick pick and if there is a clean trip, a potential winner.

Churchill Downs, 11th Race, Breeders' Cup Classic (G1), 1 ¼ Miles (Dirt)

Zenyatta was not a BreezeFigs horse-she was purchased as a yearling, but we did catch her breezing last month a couple of times and got her with 25-foot-plus stride lengths-plus she nailed a 26-foot-plus SL in one of her races. Lookin at Lucky (25-foot plus) and Haynesfield (24.5 foot) both had good profiles as BreezeFigs horses at the sales, and we think this could be a pretty stone cold Trifecta-with the mare on top.

Quick-Pix for Saturday Maiden Races:

Calder Race Course, 1st Race, Maiden Claiming (25g), 7 Furlongs (Dirt) Go with Star Flyer, eight-over-Par with issues (obviously) at OBSAPR with a 24.33 Foot SL.

Delaware Park, 7th Race, Maiden Special Weight, 1 1/16 Miles (Dirt) U S S Constitution was one-under-Par KEEAPR graduate with a 23.26 foot SL can compete here.

Woodbine, 6th Race, Maiden Special Weight, 6 Furlongs (Synthetic) Silent Moon was eight-over-Par at OBSMAR with a 24.86 foot SL-bet the ranch.

Good luck!
