Race 6: Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Turf

TRIXIE
Winner: Azar

Winner: Airoforce
My bet: Win #5, Daily Double #5 / #6
Why: Won by a comfortable margin over Keeneland’s turf course

LIZZY
Winner: Manhattan Dan
My bet: #3 to win
Why: This horse reminds me of someone I met in Chinatown.

Race 7: Las Vegas Breeders’ Cup Mile

TRIXIE
Winner: Red Vine
My bet: Trifecta Box: 1, 3, 5

Why: I believe in him!

CASEY
Winner: Wicked Strong (#8)
Bet: Wicked Strong (#8) boxed with Liam’s Map (#3) and Lea (#5)
Why: There is a lot more speed in this race than people see – Liam’s Map likely won’t get this easily.

SIGI
Winner: Liam’s Map
My bet: Exacta Box: 3,8,5
Why: Liam’s Map is a true miler, and he looks like the lone speed.

JESSICA
Winner: Lea

Winner: #12 Gliding By
My bet: Unplayable
Why: Jose Lezcano rides well on turf.

LIZZY
Winner: Ruby Notion
My Bet: #5 to win.
Why: Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but rubies will get you out of the friend zone.

CASEY
Winner: Illuminate (#10)
Bet: Illuminate (#10) boxed with Catch a Glimpse (#4) and Harmonize (#8)
Why: Illuminate is a well-bred European who seems to be better, at least on paper, than the rest of this field.

Why: I’m a Chatterbox looked professional in her Cotillion Stakes win.

JESSICA
