How To Win Breeders Cup Filly And Mare Turf
The Breeders’ Cup Filly and Mare Turf is Race 6 on the Breeders’ Cup weekend and goes on Saturday, November 5th from Santa Anita. Post time is 12:43 p.m. PDT.
Probable starters with odds
- Lady Eli (3-1) – Chad Brown going for third straight score in this race and it is difficult to find fault with this brilliant filly. She overcame laminitis, was stellar in the Flower Bowl and will be the one to beat.
- Seventh Heaven (7-2) – Trainer Aiden O’Brien has won almost every major turf race at the Breeders’ Cup but the Filly and Mare Turf has eluded him. This filly is a multiple European Group 1 winner.
- Pleascach (4-1) – Ran a huge race in the Prix De l’Opera off of a fifteen month layoff. With that race under her belt, she should be sharper.
- Sea Calisi (8-1) – Was no match for her brilliant stablemate Lady Eli in the Flower Bowl but has put together a very strong season and should fit with this field.
- Sentiero Italia (10-1) – Her natural cruising speed should be effective at Santa Anita and she has been consistently running well against top class company since finishing 4th in this race last year.
- Al’s Gal (15-1) – She ran a dynamite race to get the winning end of a photo finish in the E.P. Taylor but will be competing over a very different turf course in California
- Avenge (15-1) – She is another filly in this race with effective early speed and has an advantage in that she has already shown an affinity for the new Santa Anita turf course
- Photo Call (15-1) – Unclear at this point whether she elects to go to the ultra-competitive Mile or stays against her own gender here.
- Ryan’s Charm (30-1) – Peruvian champion earned her way here through a Win and You’re In race and is a relative unknown.
- Smart Call (30-1) – It is a monumental task to win this race off of an eleven month layoff.
