Breeders’ Cup Friday Live

4:00 PM EST

Europeans 1, Americans 0.

This probably won’t be the first time that I play the wrong Euro either.  Man of Iron scored with a strong late rally but it wasn’t so much that he won, but that Cloudy’s Knight lost, in large part because of Rosemary Homeister’s early pull of the trigger.  Either way, hats off to this incredible 9YO gelding who has just gotten better with time.

As far as the next one up, it’s the Juvenile Fillies Turf, and the wagering is sufficiently spread out.  The European victory in the first event has prompted the public to pound Lillie Langtry even more sufficiently as she’s currently 9/5. 

I’ll throw a couple of bucks Hatheer’s way as she’s currently a juicy 18-1.

Well we’re now within 40 minutes of the first of fourteen Breeders’ Cup races, as the Marathon will kick things off.

Just a reminder, the Breeders’ Cup Head2Head wager in which you have to pick which jockey will win the most Breeders’ Cup races closes at post time of the Marathon.  At the moment, the Field is a 2-1 favorite.  Garrett Gomez, who won 4 Breeders’ Cup races in 2008 is currently the 9/2 second choice with Julien Leparoux the 3rd choice at 5-1.

Am I crazy to perhaps throw a couple of bucks Ryan Moore’s way?  He’s on three longshots today and on the early part of tomorrow but he’ll ride Zacinto and Conduit for Sir Michael Stoute, and I’m going to take both of those two on top, so here’s to Ryan Moore having a big weekend as the 99-1 longest shot in the Head2Head.

As far as the Marathon, I’ll start off by launching a Pick 3.  In the Marathon I’ll use (#5) Father Time and (#6) Mastery.  We’ll open it up a bit in the next two legs:

$1 Pick Three 5,6 with 1,3,7,9,12 with 3,8,10,11,12 TOTAL: $50

Good luck getting things going!
