Hersh: Breeders' Cup Saturday pick four


You can look at the Turf Sprint two ways: a chance to reap profits sown by chaos, or a serious drag on a pick four ticket with a reasonable budget. I’ve got eight Turf Sprint horses on this ticket – 3 As, 3 Bs, 2 Cs – and still that doesn’t feel like enough. To keep the price tag from rising too high, hard stands are taken in both the Filly and Mare Turf and the Filly and Mare Sprint. Single As in both races keeps the all-A portion to a mere $4.50, and I plan to hit it two or three times.
